Re: 2005 JGC Radio Upgrade

It's all dependent on money. There are threads you search on it, but if you want to keep it OEM your easiest/cheapest option is an REC, then if you want to get a lockpick (adapter device that does more than just make the radio work) you can add one of the newer radios up to an RHR I believe. Most common head unit to switch to is the RER.

Re: 2005 JGC Radio Upgrade

Would a REN work? Which lockpick adapter would I need?

Re: 2005 JGC Radio Upgrade

There's only one that is the 'adapter lock pick' from coastal technologies, and yes, an REN should work fine if it has the right mounting tabs.

2005 JGC Radio Upgrade

Ok so I found a 2006 jeep srt8 Radio for cheap. I'm assuming it's a direct fit but does it have Bluetooth or anyway to add it?
It's a 6 disc REC

Re: 2005 JGC Radio Upgrade

Ok so that radio was bunk.plugged it in and no screen.
Now I found a REN that I'm gonna check out but I have no way to test it and I need a lockpick v2.0 from what I've read correct?

I think you're right, it's been a long time since I did mine.

Re: 2005 JGC Radio Upgrade

Ok back to that Rec from an 06 Srt8 jeep. The owner swears it was working when he pulled it and has been sitting for two years since. Is it possible for these units to vin lock or can it just need to be synced with the PCM? When I plug it in it's stuck on am, no screen, illumination works, volume works on the rec and only function that works from steering controls

Re: 2005 JGC Radio Upgrade

That I am not sure of, but taking it to a dealership to find out would probably be the best way to know. That sounds more like a internal issue with the screen and buttons though.
