Plug and Play aftermarket stereo

What do you guys and gals all think of something like this to replace the factory stereo? It look fairly simple to install, plus the one I'm possibly looking at is a kenwood with a usb and IPod adaptor. I like that these don't require any splicing other wires and that it plugs into my existing audio wires.

Is there supposed to be a link or picture of some type?

As a general rule, you'll always need to solder up an adapter from the ouput of the new head unit to the factory harness connector. Crutchfield, for example, send the connector which mates to the factory harness. You match wire functions, twist, solder, and shrink - voila! Ready to go.

You're essentially paying $80 for the ivault cover and saving an hour over the time it would take to solder together the harness Crutchfield provides. I'm a fan of Kenwood audio products, but I'd be a bit nervous about a $65-70 head unit.

I don't have that particular Kenwood head unit or the TJ factory head unit so I can't say whether the Kenwood would be an upgrade.
