Can an REQ radio work in my 05 wk??

I have the older style radio without the aux built in the radio and was thinking of picking up a used REQ radio can I just swap them out? I also have Sirius built in to this radio when I bought my wk so I'm guessing if the REQ does work in order for me to keep my Sirius I have to get the REQ with Sirius? Hopefully someone here knows the answers thanks in advance

You are talking about upgrading to the radio with the aux port? I have one if needed. I do believe they are plug and play.

Thanks buddy I knew about the bezel but not the antenna do you know why that is just curious? Also I have sirius built into so that means I need the req with the sat button correct????

So I'm just wondering does the req bezel fit in the 05 wk with no problem is it as easy to swap out as the raq to req radio??

i don't know if the canbus from an 08 req will work on an 05 without modification. why not just go with an REF radio from an 06 or 07. you shouldn't need anything. no bezel. no extra antenna. should be able to remove old radio(4 screws and wire harnesses) and install new REF. there are several on ebay right now for $50-$75.

reason being i want the aux in the front which the ref does not have. ive popped off my bezel for my raq its easy and pops right back in, and im pretty sure the req's are the same way, just need to make sure they fit the same slots.

the original REF's (04-05) didn't have the auxillary jack but from 2006 on they did. here are a few. just search for REF radio on ebay

Re: Can an REQ radio work in my 05 wk??

So pretty much only difference from ref and req is the ref is a single disc player and not a six right? Besides the physical differences too but are there anything else,?
