Hello. This will be my first mod to my Jeep.

I like that head unit better than the one you linked previously. I've never heard of Jensen; JVC stuff is not bad.

No, I'm keeping the factory amp. I have a Jensen unit in my Cobalt and I love the thing. I wish I could get the exact same model for the Jeep, but they don't sell them anymore But of the head units that one I seemed to like the most. Thanks for the help guys, I'm sure I'll be back with questions once this thing comes in. Should be here Thursday is what the guy was telling me.

It works! It came in UPS Yesterday, last night after work, I spliced up the wire harness. I had JUST enough splices. I followed the directions and the other person's post/thread about it. (Forgot his username)
I took out that plate, I had to trim the top of the plastic part on the dash to get the new unit to fit. Looks good works great! I'm happy with it so far Mounted it's bluetooth mic next to the factory one. Ran the mic wires and GPS wire down the APiller the GPS wire is under the foam/padding and mounted ontop of the speaker/sound bar. I could not find the factory USB connection so I ran the Head unit's USB plug down and into that little elestaic webbing in front of the shift levers at the bottom. ALL my music fits onto one USB drive that is plugged in so I am GOOD TO GO!
