Aftermarket Navigation install into an 05 WK Grand Cherokee? Ordered Wrong Part?

Hello all,

I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee wit the standard single disc radio without navigation. I was told that you needed to buy the navigation bezel, and then use a radio install kit to use aftermarket nav. The problem is that my dash behind the radio face plate looks much different than what would go behind this new bezel.

Here is what I have:

And here is what I bought:

Am I missing something here? how in the world would the new bezel work with my existing dash? Or how do I install a aftermarket double din radio into it?

Im glad i saw this post. Just picked up my bezel and i was thinking the same thing. Does anyone have pics with the hump sitting on top? I will keep searching for pics of final install but if one of you could quickly post a picture, that would be greatly appreciated.

I think I'm confused, the round portion of the bezel goes under the dash? I guess when i saw that the bezel goes on top,i figured that the round portion world be on top of the dash. Could one of you confirm this? My apologies if this is a stupid question.

you will remove the original bezel. and install the nav bezel in the dash. the round portion of the bezel will sit on top of the dash, like they do on the vehicles with them installed from the factory.

Taking it to a local shop. They have done tint work and my other audio upgrades and have done great work. Im going with the Kenwood excelon dnx690hd double din. I really wanted a Garmin unit.

no to knock your decision but you know installing them is a piece of cake right? i installed my pioneer unit in 20 minutes. looks OEM other than the Pioneer logo on the unit.
