Newbie w/ CD install ??

Hi...
I need a vehicle quickly (long story) and the local dealers don't have a Cherokee w/ installed CD player, which I'd like.

has anyone added one aftermarket style?
(I've read the existing topics on "Removing" the CD player but haven't found much on adding one -- and Jeep doesn't encourage this.)

can a remote player be integrated into the head unit -- or am I looking at using a portable via the AUX input?

thanks for any and all advice!
PS this great forum helped me with the decision to purchase a Cherokee. really appreciate the knowledge that's being shared here!

TM

Have you considered playing your recordings via bluetooth?... or SD card?

Re: Newbie w/ CD install ??

The factory unit is not part of the head unit. Adding it should not be too difficult.

But, the reason you see threads on removing them is because the are oversized, single disk players.

Although it is a pita, in the long run you are better off copying them to an SD card. You can have thousands of songs at your fingertips, and select by album, genre, etc.
