The damned car is three months old and it's already a rattle-trap.
You will need to buy a processor and a new amp to run everything. The factory eq is inside the factory amp. If you aim to adjust things then you would have to sum the amplified outputs and run into a processor then amplify it after the processor or if your processor has remote capability with a volume control, then you could grab the signal before the amp but you will lose volume control at the radio and many features that the factory amp controls.
A great processor selection exists. I use a helix DSP Pro. I used to run the mosconi 6to8V8. A good relatively cheap amp to run everything would be a Jl audio XD800/8v2. There are many ways to accomplish what you want but it will cost quite a bit to do it.
This was one of the factors that led me to the 2013 instead of the 2014. I am a car audio guy from way back so I knew the hassle that would be involved in getting the 2014 to sound the way that I wanted it to. I wanted to reserve the right to remove the factory radio. I did just that not long after installing my setup.
wait.....I forgot one....the discontinued JBL MS8 has a built in amp so you could get a used one and just add it to your jeep too. It is not nearly as capable as the two that I listed above though.
