converting to factory 6 cd headunit

I was wondering what would be invovled in doing this process? I have a 2000 Wrangler Sport

Obviously i know you need the headunit and the wiring harness since they were changed in 03 and the bezel to go around the headunit and ac controls.

My question would be then is that all you need? Will the wiring harness plug and play that goes form the back of the headunit?

If i am wasting my time and its too much trouble please let me know. Thank you

honestly i wouldnt waste the time and money. i would buy a new head unit thats a mp3 player...and most come w/ a universal 3.5mm jack on face plate even some w/ USB much better than trying to get a factory 6 disc unit to work.

i have ppl commin in my shop all the time w/ the units like that failing. they are normaly junk. aftermarket companies pretty much quit makin them about 10y ago bc of all the issues.

Yeah, I agree...I used to have a cd changer in my truck and while it was nice having 10 cds available at all times, I couldn't play most burned CDs and it skipped a lot on rougher roads. Nowadays, most people don't listen to standard audio CDs anymore anyway...they've moved on to burned CDs (which can be incompatible with some players) and MP3 compilations, which if you have an MP3 compatible headunit, you can fit quite a few albums onto a standard CD-R disc which would be BETTER than having a 6 CD changer. You'd have 6+ CDs all on one disc!

thanks for the info. I was mostly looking into it rather than an aftermarket headunit because they are so easily stolen out of jeeps.

i have had a aftermarket radio in my jeep for last 6y or so since i owned it and never had it stolen. i never lock my doors either. biggest thing is to remember to always remove faceplate no matter if your going into a place for 5min. thats the biggest turn off for a theif is to look into a vehicle and see a radio w/o a face.

at that point whats the point to rish stealin it...sure in alot of cases u can get a new face but they range between $50-$300 or more.. and a new player starts @ like $80.

Pick up one of these...I believe it also acts as your "universal mounting kit" which typically runs around $15 alone.
