Are JKU's wired for sub if it wasn't an option?

I have an 08 and 07 JKU (selling one soon) and the one I am going to sell has the subwoofer in it. Does anyone know if the other is pre-wired for the sub so I can just swap it in? If it is easy I will do that, but if it requires wiring it up myself I will just install a new sub in the one I am keeping.
I guess the same goes for the Sat radio, the stereo I would swap in has Sat, the one I am keeping doesn't, is there anything that will be missing if I swap the new radio in?

Well, assuming that the '07/ '08 design is the same as my '10:

Yes, the wires will already be there for the sub. However, the AMP won't be, so just swapping out the sub won't work unless you transfer the amp over as well. It's located under the steering column.

To check it it's wired for the sub, look for a cutout in the carpet on the pass. side of the tub, near the roll bar. Feel around behind that cutout and you'll probably find the sub wires. I never bothered looking for amp wires on mine, so you're on your own there.

As for the sat radio, you'll need the sat receiver (antenna) to go along with it. As I recall, it's mounted on the top of the roll bar and runs down the pass. side into the dash.
