Stock stereo CD changer connection???

I'm curious about the stock TJ stereo, and how the optional CD changer hooks up to it. Is it with typical RCA connectors?

I'm looking for a better way to play my ipod through the stereo. Currently, I'm using an FM transmitter, but if the CD changer connection is an RCA type, I can get a 3.5mm stereo to RCA adapter, and get a cleaner sound.

It's a proprietary connector, a little square gray plug. You plug in an aftermarket adapter, available here:

CHRY02-AUX | TSS-Radio

...and in a few minutes you're good to go. The audio from the iPod or other external device is input to the adapter with a stereo to RCA Y-cable and to play it, you switch to the CD changer function on the head unit. It displays CD1-Track1 constantly, but that's not really a big issue.

I've had mine set up this way forever and it works great!

Awesome, thank you! It looks like TSS Radio is out of stock, but I found them on Amazon for about $60.
