Double din deck into TJ electrics

Hi guys,

Just wanted some advice regarding the electrics for putting a 2011 model double din deck into a 1997 TJ. Will it require modifying the existing wiring? Do I need to get a lumen set specifically for the plugs and points as I have seen some sets on eBay. Anyone know?

Cheers

Thanks doc for the reference to installing the radio. The thing is though I have an RB2 factory radio from a Cherokee 2012 and I need to get the wiring harness to install it. Can you tell me where I can get one? I have looked everywhere

Thanks for the help. I used your guide for the bondo and stuff but I used a double din mount for a JK to mount the stereo so it is mounted to the frame instead of the plastic and bondo dash. Its working out great. I also found that sandable paint helped smooth it out as I didnt bondo over the whole dash and initially you could kind of see the change in texture.

Here is a link to my dropbox folder with all of the pictures from my install. I dont think I have the finished/painted picture in there but you can tell what it will look like wih my primered picture. I also have a few pictures from my power door lock install. Its hooked in with my security system so its pretty awesome. I had to wire in some relays for it to work with it.

You may notice there are 2 different stereos in the pictures. Two nights after I initially put in the Double din stereo someone broke in and stole it so I took the opportunity to get a new one with an alarm and improve the dash as it wasnt very smooth.

Two months later, finally another update!

I decided that it would be easiest to mold the trim ring of the monitor into the dash itself. It would give me the clean look I’m going for and I wouldn’t have to worry about rigging up some kind of brackets to mount the monitor. In case anyone is questioning the weight of the monitor putting stress on the dash and cracking it, it’s not going to happen. The monitor is super light. So out came the dremel once again! I glassed it in, added some filler, primed, spot filled, sanded, primed again and finally plasti-dipped. Came out pretty good if I do say so myself! I left the mini USB port and will hook it up to the carputer when I do the final install.
