Radio Replacement Suggestions

The factory radio in my 88 yj has quit. I would like a new replacement but would like something simple; I am a narly throwback of another time and don't really require cd, mp3, ipod capability; just want an am/fm stero radio.

I have been going thru the websites and not finding anything.

Are there any saviors out there for my needs?

Another forum member (s3nt3nc3d, thanks again) recently recommended the site daveysjeeps.com to me. You can drop them an email and ask if they have any original factory stereos that would work for your jeep.

I can't take full credit... another member recommended it to me the day before I recommended it to you. lol

But yeah, that would work well...or even just a simple aftermarket radio from Walmart or something. You can find really cheap radios for like $15...plus you'll need the wiring kit and a mounting kit. Looking at a minimum of bout $50.

Thanks for the suggestions. Davey's Jeeps responded quickly. I ended up going to a local yard and found a radio from a yj. Installation went well and sounding well.

How much did they charge you for it, might I ask?

I'm trying to sell my old factory unit from my 2002 TJ...but have NO idea what to price it at. Must be too high right now cuz I ain't even gotten a nibble so far.
