Welcome to Jeep Garage.


Should be plug and play.
Do you have sirius also? My upgrade from the RES to RHB was super easy.

Go to WK2JEEPS.COM and compare the part number of the radios you are looking at with what is on the site.

Yes...I have sirus radio... What's the difference between RHB and RBZ.. Thanks again

Both are 430 radios. RBZ is non Nav and RHB is with Nav

Savage,

Did you have a successful install? Was there a need for a new wire harness going from RES to RBZ?

@ Movets - it is plug and play going from RES to RHB. Since the U-connect module is separate even the phone pairings switched over automatically. As long as you verify the part number and order the correct radio, it is 10 minutes and done.

If you buy new, it will come with an antenna and wiring harness - neither is needed as they had the antenna installed in all 2013's with the connectivity group.

Good luck, it's a night and day improvement, both aesthetically and technically.
