Help me! Mygig install questions

I want to install the mygig for 2008 laredo with the stock radio system
will it fit to just swap in the mygig (after of course all the wires and what not) or will i have to get a whole new bezel thing and what not. i know the older models didn't just fit but i dont know if that stands for 2008 as well. please help thanks!

Re: Help me! Mygig install questions

No, it won't look like that, that is a 2005-2007 image.

I'm in the middle of my own hell right now with the MyGig.. I have a 2007 so it's a little different. You can buy a stand alone mic kit for about $40 instead of doing the new mirror.

I haven't messed with a back up camera yet.

Re: Help me! Mygig install questions

I would just get the extra microphone and skip the mirror. I paid for the mygig and lockpick around 800 if I remember correctly.

Re: Help me! Mygig install questions

Nice package.. you'd need nothing after that except software updates.

Re: Help me! Mygig install questions

I bought an aftermarket camera. I drilled a hole in the middle of the license plate and put it there. It is very small and nearly invisible. The cord leads inside the lift gate and I fished it through the ceiling, down by the handle by the windshield and in the dash. I have an aftermarket indash DVD player also.

I'll have a picture of my camera tomorrow.
