Thanks man, I appreciate it. I pulled open that first link and it just so happens to be a Harman/Becker system, I used to work there, and still know a bunch of people that still work there. I bet I can get hooked up with one of those for cheaper. Thanks a bunch.

Good deal! I really do like the big display on the radio and don't use the GPS/Map features. The best part of the unit was the price - the friend that rolled the Ram SRT-10 and parted it out gave it to me.

Nice score. I'm not particularly interested in the GPS/Map. Just want it for the radio and it looks good. Last question, does it have an AUX input? Or is that what I need the adapter for?

No direct Aux but there are ways to hack the CD changer interface if you simply want to input sound. I believe that the same interface was used on all Chrysler radios at that time with a redesign coming across the line in the 2006/2005 model years (think WK GC/2006 Dodge Ram/Charger/300).

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Anybody upgraded injectors to the 4 hole type on a 4.7? Just traded the 99 4.0L WJ for a 2000 4.7L limited WJ and wanted advice from those who have done it. I plan on adding an AFE intake after injectors.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

My WJ's had a rough time this winter. I had to replace the leak detection pump for the second time in under a year because apparently the leak defective pump switch became defective since then, which apparently messed up the pump again. Didn't really understand why that wasn't changed the first time around so I went to my new trusted shop this time around... lol The catalytic converter started to go so I had that changed along with the pump. Got everything done for a pretty fair price so I cant complain too much.

Last week my starter went so I just got the new one put in today. Pic of the brand new one below.

With the nice weather in NYC this past weekend I finally put the resistors on my back taillights so now my turn signals are working properly. You can see them in the video.


Next I want to smoke the taillights, plasti-dip the rims and touch up the grill (which did pretty well with all the snow and ice this winter)
