2008 Oem radio question?

Sorry if this has been covered, but I'm new here and couldn't find it in my searches. I have 2008 wrangler x that came w/o satellite hook up or u connect. Yesterday I bought one off of eBay that comes with sirius antenna and all necessary wiring, and it's pre programmed. Is there anything else I'm going to need? Also where should I put the sirius antenna at?

For the satellite there are 2 antennas. The earlier models had it up on the sound bar on the passenger's side. Later models combined it with the navigation antenna and it was stuck on the dash frame above the head unit. You will know which one you have by the length of the cable. Also, there will be only 2 antenna connectors on the head unit instead of 3.

What is the model of the unit? It is a 3 letter code below the aux jack.

Not sure I ordered it last night on eBay so I don't have it in hand yet.

Ok guys and or gals the radio has come in. I have a fairly long satellite cable. Where should I mount this? How should I run the cable.
