Looking for a new stereo...

I posted in the electronics forum but since this is for my TJ I figured I'd ask here as well.

I currently have a 1-din unit in my 97 and have hacked up (removed) my two center vents in preparation for either installing a in-dash screen, or now that I look at it, the possibility of a 2-din unit with a screen built-in. Despite living in Washington State, I'm not concerned about water, etc. as I keep it garaged, or have the top on if the weather is bad.

Must:
Accept vga input
have pre-amp output
read burnt CD's with MP3's
4 speaker output with reasonable wattage (20+ per channel?)

Would be nice:
touch screen
accepted DVD's with either movies and/or MP3's

Cool if:
accepted bluetooth devices (phone, etc)

Any recommendations?

So yeah, already did that and it appears they don't carry either of the two models in my other link, so I suspect they don't carry monitors with features like what I'm looking for. Anyone else have some recommendations?

Planning on leaving the hardtop on all the time? You will get caught in a shower at some point if you take the top off.... it is inevitable. Happened to me within 2 weeks of ownership!

But good luck with your search, and I hope it doesn't get stolen....

I'd HIGHLY suggest just getting a decent receiver with a USB input. I have an 8GB USB thumb drive hooked up to mine with some 500+ MP3s and love it. The only thing I don't like is how hard it is to get to a specific song... good thing it had iPod support for when I get one of those.
