outdoor head unit? is there such a thing as a good one?

i am having issues with my current aftermarket head unit in my wrangler. i have upgraded to all polk marine certified speakers throughout... so i guess i need to finish it off with a better head unit. the jeep stays outside with the top off 90% of the yr... so it needs to be pretty well made. and i dont want anything fancy... as to there are no doors on it as well... dont want it to be easily stolen. i have no need for a cd player... or tape. my current one that is going out has radio, usb in, 1/8" in and SD card reader. something along that would be awesome.

does anyone have any good personal input 1st hand with these marine head units?

thanks all

I have an old kenwood cd player in mine. no usb, card readers or any of that non-sense. It is right in the dash and sits outside uncovered all year (with the exception of nov, dec, jan and feb here in MO... Have had it for 3 years now...
