New owner (pics)

picked up an 08 with 27,000 km on it in Toronto. I went for an 08 just to get this color. Steel blue doesn't seem to be available in 09.

Has remote start and tow package. Really liking it so far (1 day) :-). I find it amazing how tight and rattle free it is.

I had a CJ5 waaaay back when I was 19. Going from an 07 BMW 335i coupe to this! Bit of a change huh?

Question, is uconnect bluetooth? I see the buttons on the stereo...can it be added?

Welcome ---- great color & options. I know what you mean ------ I went from a Porsche Boxster S to my JK Rubi 4-door.........but getting used to not have to worry about looking down and saying, WOW --- I didn't know I was going 130......felt like I was just going about 70......very dangerous (IN A GREAT WAY) little car..... LOL.

I only put 2k on my Box in 2 years. Never rode in the rain, never took out too much, too worry about scratches, parking lots and POLICE.... :P

(not really in that order....)

I know that uconnect is available........read the archives. Something you can add, or you can buy I think a unit called a LockPick.....do some searches....PLENTY of info available.
Welcome and have fun!

about the uconnect bluetooth, my dealer told me it cannot be added in wrangler because of the way the central mirror is fixed to the windshiled (the microphone should be attached to the window, he said) , the feature is for the other models of jeep, since the stereo is same for all new models of jeep. now, should I kill my dealer?

Mishel,
it definitely can be added. I have a friend with a JK that has it installed. He used the LockPick system and wired the mic to sit on top of his unit. Works great, not sure about the wind....(grin) and it allows him to edit the NAV screens & watch DVD movies while driving.... (not him, but the passengers) --- LOL....

Thanks for the compliments..... it is a French European style home.
Where are you in Europe?

Yep- we can add it to any Jeep. It's just a PITA in the Wrangler if you do it via the rearview mirror- Mark W.

hey welcome to wf i have a 09 with the res radio(basic radio with sat) u can buy a part that connects to the back of your radio then run the module under the glove box and run the mike it was very easy to self install took about 30 min it is plug and play but the dealer has to run the computer on it after it is installed altogether your looking at about 300$
p.s. it works great i love it

Andy,
I'm in Romania, as about the microphone, yes, that is the way to do it, what I meant was in the other models of jeep, as far as I understood, the microphone is allready attached to the mirror and there are no whires visible... oh, and my system won't show the image of the dvd unless I'm in Parking position...

How much is it if you add it to the NAVI Sirius system? (RER??) Is it any cheaper?

I BELIEVE it's the same kit for all radios, but I'll have to check- Mark W.
