ipod/aux hook up
Hi guys Im new here I have an 05 Grand Cherokee Laredo, it has the ref headunit without the aux input. I know this has been talked about many times, but I haven't really found a definitive answer. Im trying to figure out if there is a way to hookup an ipod to my factory headunit without spending $100 on an adapter or buying a new radio. There has to be a way to get an aux input into the factory radio. I dont have a cd changer, but I do have a factory amp. I know about fm transmitters and modulators, but I dont want to go that route. Is there a way to wire into the headunit or even the amp to run an ipod? Id rather cut into wires, or solder into the board than buy a new radio. Any tips, advice would be appreciated. Thanks

i am going through the same issue have a radio without aux... dont have the need for a fancy nav unit so i just bought a new radio off ebay. i looked at different options but they were just as expensive as a new radio, so decided on just buying a new radio with aux.

also here is a very cheap one for sale by a member here, i almost bought it myself but i ended up buying one with a 6cd changer.

That was actually the route I was going to take if theres no mod to be done, Id much rather have a stock radio so I might just buy the updated radio that has aux built in. Thanks for the reply!
