Bluetooth audio streaming for my 2009

My 2009 stock radio is uconnect capable (with addition of uconnect hardware). But based on other forum messages, I understand that even with uconnect installed I will not be able to BT stream audio. I think it is 2011 or 2012 before radio hardware can BT audio stream. Does anyone know if a 2011 or 2012 radio (whichever is the first that capable of audio streaming with uconnect) will fit my 2009? I know I could buy some fancy-smancy aftermarket radio but I prefer to keep the stock jeep look. I do not care about hands free phone operation just want my audio. And of so, anyone have one to sell?

You're correct about the streaming audio not being supported by Uconnect until 2011 but this is (was) because the radio's HW did not support it.
I'm pretty sure that the newer radios will fit in you '09. To make sure of this, look at how your radio is mounted to the dash and compare it to the picture below (it's a 2012 radio). If your mounting tabs are in the same location then you'll be good to go. On a side note though, if you end up going with the factory nav radio, then you'll have to replace your current SAT radio antenna if you have sat radio. This is because the NAV ant is in the same housing as the newer SAT radio ant.

Thanks for great info and will check the mounting. NAV is not a must but an option I had not thought of. Current radio is SAT but I no longer subscribe but should keep keep the option open. Thanks!
