Re: ? on audio

They have harnesses to keep the steering wheel controls but I'm not sure about Uconnect (not sure if WK has it?). Check out Crutchfield.com to get an idea of what you will need as far as accessories you need with your choice of head unit.

Re: ? on audio

Parts alone for the WK will run roughly $300-$500 (depending if you source them yourself or pay a shop full mark up)

going off rough amazon pricing, youre looking about $60 for the harness, $10 for the antenna adapter, $12 for the dash kit and $60 for the steering wheel control module. You'll need the dash bezel from a WK with Nav which will run you about $125 on ebay. Total is about $300 going that route, in just parts, still doesnt include your nav radio.

I can tell you if you came to the shop i used to work at you'd be looking about $200 in labor to install the nav system and steering wheel controls, Back up camera would be about $85 and front camera would be about $75. So ball park that at another $350 in labor alone.

You're at about $625 in parts and labor without even buying a stereo yet.

Keep in mind, ipod adapters, satallite radio all those parts are extra in parts and extra in labor.
