Waterproof Radio

I have a '79 CJ that is a toy. I would like to get a waterproof radio for that would work well. Does anyone know of a good one to buy? I hose it down when it gets muddy inside and there is a small leak in the windshield that I cannot pinpoint. The leak burnt up the brand new radio I put in it within the same week. Thanks.

I can't offer any recommendations on units, but your best bet would be to look at marine receivers in a boating supply store.

Hold my beer and watch this.......

I had a marine one in my old YJ. It was a kenwood I think. It had a cover over the front and was just a guard from splash. I think youll find that is what is out there. "Waterproof" is a tall order, especially if it plays CD's.

That was Purdy as hell right there!!!!

Uh.... dad... Uncle Jessie is crazy! Sooo cool though!

Do you think if I fabbed a box to put it in behind the dash that the radio would overheat? Weld together a steel box with no back to it for wires to pass then bolt or weld it to the dash and then mount the radio within the box. That way any drop from the windshield would not get to it and any splash from the underside would not get to it. Might need to fab some sort of hinged cover to go over the face too
