First Newb Question
 
Hey, folks. I'm the proud owner of a NEW (to me) white 2007 WK Limited. When I bought it I was under the impression that it was equiped with a auxiliary audio input. when I went for the initial test drive, I found out that was not true. I fell in love with the Jeep, and made the leap. Doing some digging after about a week of ownership, I've realized that it was going to be pretty hard to rig up a system that was going to work. I've tried the FM transmitter route, but that honestly sucks. I'm really missing being able to play music from my iPhone and iPod with any kind of decent audio quality. The vehicle has a Boston Acoustics system in it with the RAQ head unit. I'm looking for any and all options to be able to get an auxiliary audio input with the highest quality audio I can get. I'm not above replacing the head unit, but if I did, I'd want to make sure I got one that would fit well, and not look god awful. any help you guys can give me would be great! Thanks for reading my first post!

Does your jeep have the DVD option for your passengers?

Negative. It is the RAQ radio. It does have Sirius, though.

Sorry don't know what to tell you, mine has the DVD system which has auxiliary hookups so I ran a cord from there to the front and plug my phone in to it

i forget which radio i had... but it was the 6 disc with sirius. i too wanted an aux... so i bought a new head unit on ebay for pretty cheap and just switched it out. the new one is just a single cd but i dont play cd's often so it didnt matter to me much.

I would honestly just get a double din touch screen unit which will run off your smart phone they are so cheap now. Cruthfield usually gives you the dash kit as apart of the kit

I'm new to all of this too, and a way to get the aux port was also one of the very first things I was looking for. I haven't gotten it yet, but I did find this.

Apparently if you set it up like that, you can hide your ipod away, and control it through the radio. The best possible alternative, in my opinion.

I reaplaced my raq with an rer lowspeed. Looks factory (because it is) and works amazing!
