MyGIG questions..

Hey guys, i tried a search, couldnt find what i was looking for, I had a mygig in my 08 srt8 and to be honest i miss it!, sound was good and i miss the hard drive built in to hold mp3's and pictures. my vehicle has the 130 kit which is the base model cd player..

questions consists of:

1. can a mygig double din be installed on a 2012 jk that doesnt come with it as a option?
2. is it plug and play? obviosly i'd need to buy a microphone etc. but do i need to add anything wiring wise?
3. how does it mount?

thanks!

Do you want sirius sat? If so you will have to run a wire up to your roll bar. I have a brand new 730n RER with a Nav antenna I would consider selling to you if you want it. You would have to buy a Mic for phone calls and thats it if you don't already have uconnect in your JK.

I installed the MyGig (RER) in my 09 JKU and it plugged right in and worked. The 09 had no microphone, so I had to buy and install that. The satellite antenna just plugs in as well, and you should already have that.

I bought mine off eBay, just make sure it is compatible. Some are for high speed can-bus and some are for low speed.

If you have sirius then no you won't have to run the wire. Does yours have voice calls/uconnect?

2012s are completely different than 09s. Uconnect modules have a lot to do with whether it will work or not.
