retaining steering wheel radio controls in my WJ

I am now starting to miss the steering wheel controls for the radio in my WJ. I have a Pioneer DEH-P840 headunit. I know there are "pac adapters" out there for this. Can someone point me in the right direction?

disregard. Got all the info I need. The ASWC one made by metra I have been told works great, and is automatically detected when installed. And only 3 wire installation.

Re: retaining steering wheel radio controls in my WJ

just to bring back a post from the dead. I finally got around to doing this. I ended up buying the PAC SWIX module as my headunit doesn't have the plug in the back, According to the postmark on the package I received it almost a year ago. Install was easy, and works great.
