05 WK GC REC to RER upgrade questions

Hey all- New member here but looking for some info (I tried searching but there is so much info, I'm kinda lost)

I have an 05' Grand Cherokee Limited, with factory REC, uConnect, Sirius and VES. I want to upgrade the headunit to an RER. I know i need a low-speed model. Easy enough, along with the bezel attachment. Here are my questions:

1. If I order the lockpick, will my existing VES and uconnect work? I've seen lots of stuff about needing additional mics and such? and where does it go?

2. How will my Sirius work? Do I need a replacement antenna or will the factory antenna work? Where would that antenna go if I need to replace it?

3. I saw something about needing to replace the existing GPS antenna? If so, where does the new antenna go.

4. Finally, I see a bunch of people have timing/clock issues. How / what do I need to buy to avoid that?

I think that's everything. Just want ot make sure if I am gonna drop the $$$, I do it right ;-)

Thanks in advance.

Stephen

Re: 05 WK GC REC to RER upgrade questions

there is a software fix for the clock and i think it comes with the latest lockpick, its not a big deal. you will need to make a bezel for it and buy the lockpick. your sirius subscription is linked to your vehicle and you will keep the same antenna. i also think you keep the same gps antenna. it would have been nice to have the rer, but i think it looks awkward in the 05-07 so i stayed with the rec.
