2008 Jeep

I just purchased a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. It has an aftermarket stereo, but I want to replace with a factory stereo. Can I install a newer model Jeep factory stereo to my 2008 model.

And where do I find my satellite antenna?

Welcome to the Forum!

The antenna is on the sound/roll bar near the passenger side speaker.

You can install a newer head unit but everything electrical on the JK is on the CAN bus so there may need to be some programing. Someone will chime in that knows for certain.

It is basically plug and play. Newer units combine the satellite and navigation antennas. You will need a blue tooth module and mic for the 430N. The 730N just needs the mike. You just need to make sure you get a high-speed bus model. All JKs use this.
