You need to buy one of these...it would plug in to the stock connectors, then you splice up the wires and match it with the new head unit.

Would that be all I need to keep my steer wheel controls?

So those would be better than the standard cable that comes with the unit? I thought you would be able to control the iPod threw the radio?

making this head unit work in your WJ will be no problems what so ever. BUT! steering wheel controls will ONLY work if the radio is compatible with steering wheel controls. If you need any help, PM me. I used to install radios for a job but got tired of dealing with the company and small breakable cheap interior pieces. :)
