You can't do that. The MY11-13 has a completely different electrical buss than the MY14+. You can, however, get adapters to put an aftermarket system into your MY11...something that MY14+ cannot do.

Re: Overland 2011 upgrade to 8.4 uconnect

Greetings,

Depending on your HVAC controls, Alpine has a 8 inch aftermarket unit that will fit into the WK2 with a little modification. If you have the touch button dual HVAC controls will not fit, that will require a lot of mods. Alpine used to show a picture of that unit in JGC. Their was a member here a long time ago did it. Since you have a 2011, you are better off taking advantage and get a aftermarket solution instead on the MYGIG radios.

Best for now.
