Kenwood DDX-418 (1.5-2 DIN) ?

Just bought a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and i already am going to make some Modifications. I want to put a Kenwood DDX418 touch screen in the dash (where the area for the radio is already) but i don't know if it would fit, and i don't want to buy it and find out it doesn't fit. Anybody know if it will or won't??

If its a 1.5 din radio it will fit although you may have to "square" the corners of the factory bezel To interface it and keep the steering wheel controls you'll need an adapter.
Edit: its a double din unit so you will need to cut the bezel, and create your own mounting bracket but it will fit

Thanks, i needed to know for sure it would fit. There is a company that makes the special brackets and faceplate to fit a 2DIN and if i cant do it myslef ill bring it somewhere. And im assumming all the plugs and wires are the same?

You will need a wiring install kit that is vehicle specific. If you order the head unit from Crutchfield I am pretty sure they include it...other places no idea.
