Hey guys, I'm having a bit of an issue with my radio. My tape deck has stopped working in my 2001 WJ, which means I can no longer listen to my iPod while driving with the tape adapter. Of course being an '01 there is no AUX port so now I'm thinking about getting a new radio. Originally I was just going to go to a junk yard and get a used one for cheap but I'm seeing a few options for under $100.00 so I'm wonder which would be a good one to get.
I found this
on ebay which really seems to resemble the stock radio with and added adapter that acts as an AUX port and iPod charging station (not including the new iPhone 5 and above devices). The plus side to this is that it looks like it will fit perfectly in place of my stock radio. The draw back is it really just looks like a regular stock radio with an added adapter that someone just added on so I'm worried about how durable it will be.
I have also found a list of kenwood radios
in particular seemed to catch my interest. It has everything that I'd want in a radio, basic AM, FM (I don't really need Sirius or XM), CD player, AUX port and USB port. My only real concern is the fit. It looks like this radio will leave an empty space in the dash and also the edges aren't as rounded as the stock radio so I'm concerned on how it would sit in the center counsel.
If you guys could give me some input on these radios it would be appreciated, or if you know any other models that are a good price (up to $150.00 range) I'd definitely consider it. Thanks for the help.
