Re: Upgrade to 8.4in screen?

It's not impossible. If someone can order the bezel and all the components, I can make it work, I was the first person to shove a MyGig/Uconnect 730 into a 2007 Charger when they said it wouldn't work and it originally came with the big boxy radio. Someone that works in a parts department should order the kit and ill put it in the alpine and make it work.

I can only imagine the price of that radio from Mopar. I wouldn't be shocked if it was north of 3k. That's a lot of money to dish out for something that "should" work.

I traded in my 2013 Laredo for a 2012 SRT. The 2013 NEVER had one issue. I LOVED that nav...the 2012 constantly freezes on me and I hate the layout. I should have swapped out the units.

Once again, completely different electrical architecture in the '14s v. any previous Chrysler model. But you go ahead and buy all the parts and try it and let us know.
