Radio question

Will any of the My Gig radios work in an 05 GC LTD? I currently have the 6CD changer in my GC and would like to get a nav unit that has a front panel aux out. The REC does not have that feature. I may go AM for a head unit. I'd prefer to stay in the Jeep world though.

Re: Radio question

^^^^^^what he said and there are threads here about the install, the nav bezel mods, etc. rec is LARGER than DD. myGig is DD. so you need to mke a small filler. not a big deal but look around for the pics, see what you are dealing with/ >>>>>EDIT >>>> Matt posted pics up there ^^^^^^^^^

and it MUST BE A SLOW SPEED myGig.

Re: Radio question

i had a rec nav so i already had the bezel. so i just bought a filler bezel on ebay for like $40. some other people have cut the stock radio bezel to fit the mygig. the lockpick comes with a template to cut the bezel.

I've got a low-speed RER, and Lockpick adapter for sale on eBay.... My ebay id is kksulli2.

I pulled the radio out of my 08 WK when I bought it, and put the unit I had in there so I didnt have to swap music files or sirius subscription. I can't use the lockpick adapter anymore and have to buy the regular lockpick now.

Let me know if interested (via ebay )

Re: Radio question

On my way to getting a RER installed on my 05 GC LTD. I just got the radio for $571.00 shipped. The radio bezel at Jeep was $115.00. Bezel insert is on order for $50.00. The Lock Pick v4 is on order for $179.00 and $10.00 for the GPS antenna also on order. Hope to have it up and running by late next week. Down the road I want to get a rear camera and a U-Connect mirror. That should just about do it. I got a matching Jeep OEM cargo mat and a leather console lid as well.
