130 to 430N upgrade - conflicting info

I've searched and rad on here in various threads that the swap from a 130 system w/uconnect and Sirius, to a 430N RHB unit, is a straight plug and play swap. Meaning I can reuse the existing antenna, wiring, etc. I made my over to WK2 Jeeps via a link I found in a thread on this topic. It gives me conflicting info.


Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2011-2013 Grand Cherokee Navigation radios



Vehicle being upgraded from (AM/FM and SATELLITE RADIO) the following is required:

RADIO REMOVAL
*ANTENNA REPLACEMENT*
RADIO INSTALLATION


The antenna replacement is the part that is confusing me. Is it required or not? As far as I know, or knew, the antenna was the same, since the GPS and SAT radio is bilt into one antenna, the same antenna used on all Jeeps that have Sirius Radio.

Can anyone who has doen the swap or knows clarify? All of this is on my 2013 WK2 Laredo BTW. Currently has the 130N w/Uconnect, Sirius, the center console USB port, and bluetooth streaming. New 430N RHB unit is coming from a 2012 WK2, guy I'm getting it from is getting the security code from the dealer.

Re: 130 to 430N upgrade - conflicting info

From what I've read as long as you have SiriusXM and uconnect it should be plug and play and have full-functioning features. There's been quite a few people that have done this swap and not had any issues.

It's a straight swap. Same antenna connectors since you already have SAT. I came from a 130 with SAT to an RHB with anti-theft.

So the WK2 Jeeps link is wrong then? Thanks for clarifying. Everything I've read on here says the antenna does NOT need changed.

Awesome. Thanks. Did your free 1 yr Sirius subscription still work on the 430N? Assuming you still had the free 1 yr.

That's the only bad thing. I have the free sirius til October. The radio I got had sirius and travelink active when I first installed it. Lasted a couple months and then was turned off.

Hasn't been bad at all since I stream Pandora and all I ever listened to on Sirius was the 80's station lol

Re: 130 to 430N upgrade - conflicting info

I'm the same way. If I could get a Sirius subscription of ONLY Octane, that'd be awesome, since it's the only station that I ever tune to. But my wife uses it as well.

I also lost the remainder of my subscription but that was no biggie. The radio I replaced it with did not have an active sub.

call Sirius customer service & tell them you would like to transfer your existing service to a different receiver. They can "cancel" your sub on the og unit and then transfer it to the 430. You will need serial #'s to complete

Thanks. I'll definitely give that a shot.

Are you installing a backup camera as well? Also since you will be removing the head unit, would be a perfect time to install a mygig lockpick.
