Aerosmith This is a great question; I too have a 6 spd Wrangler and I would love to know if anyone has successfully used a flash of some kind (lock pick etc) to unlock backup camera functionality on their manual wrangler. I know that the lockpick website specifically says will NOT work on manual wranglers...

any4xx Okay, All,

I've read for two days straight now regarding the installation of a 430 into my '13 Wrangler. Two questions remain unanswered:

#1: WILL the XAC flash permit the use of a backup camera on a 6-speed manual Wrangler.

#2: Will ANY aftermarket camera interface with any of the 430 units, or will I have to use the camera designated for the Jeep Commander (Or other Chrysler) for the 430 to work with the rear view camera.

My only reason for wanting the 430 head unit is for the backup camera. I can find an aftermarket head unit that will take a backup camera pretty easily and the steering wheel controls are an easy interface. But I REALLY want to retain the stock look.

Any help???

Thanks,
Tom

Once the radio rebooted, it came up with a Dodge logo on boot, and a Chrysler logo on the screen (radio, sat, etc). With that, two questions:

1) Has anyone had success getting their audio CPU to update in an earlier model RBZ? If so, what is the latest version available?
2) Any idea how to get the Jeep logo back? Some posts I've read said that while their radios booted with Dodge and came to a Chrysler screen, eventually this changed over to Jeep. Mine however, has not.

Any thoughts/help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
The first radios I bought were older 2010 built models. When I upgraded to 10.00.11, my radios did the same thing. It's some sort of flaw. My audio CPU did not upgrade. I heard people say the logo eventually changes but I've never had any luck with the (2) 2010 models I've owned. It stays the same as the vehicle it originally came from. However, if you get an RBZ from a 2011+ vehicle, the logo will change after the first time it powers up. The 2011 models are the most rare because they are updated with the later, better software but doesn't have the anti-theft like the 2012+ models. You have to pay close attention to the build dates. If you want one built for a 2011 vehicle, find one with a late 2010 build date. Built in September or later to be certain. Any earlier than that and it may end up being the older version like the one you have currently.

I hope that information helps.

I don't think there's anything else different. They probably sell for more because most people actually buy the sirius version. Keep your eye on ebay and you should be able to find a much cheaper RBZ. I've bought a few around $300 in excellent condition and one brand new one came from a 2014 Jeep.

wrix You get the code by calling the dealership with your radio serial number and vin number. I actually left mine on the front for an annual inspection. Done free of charge.

OrangeJeepGuy Would a P05091327AC work? I think they are from a Chrysler T&C.

cprsac Ok, I've paid the price and read all pages of the forum.

I have a 2014 Rubi with the 130 system. Do I have anti theft? If so, how do I get the code so I can sell the unit?

I have Connectivity/Bluetooth and Sirus so what 430 (no-nav) unit do I need to look for? What year forward, high speed, etc?

Aerosmith So the Jeep arrived, and I picked it up late last night. Fast forward to this evening, and I'm taking apart my dash to install the new RBZ that I ordered earlier in the thread. Installation really was as simple as it was made out to be - no, really. If there is anyone reading this now or in the future, I can assure you, I am less mechanically inclined than you are, and yet I was able to accomplish this install in less than 20 minutes without any other instruction than that linked in the first post. There are 4 bolts for the dash, another 4 for the radio, unplug, replug, done. I highly recommend it if you think you might even possibly like it, just make sure you get the right radio (HIGH SPEED BUS) and the right mounting holes (left and right of the radio, not top and bottom). Cheers, and thanks again to everyone here that contributed. Cheers!

AdamG8GXP Thanks for all the info.

I just ordered JKU w/ Willys Wheeler W w/ 130S, connectivity and Alpine so I will be able to plug and play 430N eventually.
05-11-2014 07:11 PM
RustyJK I just installed my 430 today, managed to luck out and get anti theft, upgrade able to the newest software and green backlighting.. Love it so far.

Now I just need to try and transfer my free year of Sirius and get my iphone to pair.. I don't think my jailbreak wants to play nice, another iphone paired just fine but my jailbroken one wouldn't connect.

Aerosmith Looks like I won that auction; now all I need is a Jeep to put it in! Thanks again to everyone that contributed to this thread, super helpful information.

I put a bid on this unit, not the cheapest, but good information and if it is, in fact, never used, should be right:

If anyone could confirm, I'd sure appreciate it, but it looks like it'll be just right for my new JKU when it comes in, unless there's something about the 2014 models I have missed when reading the posts. Thanks guys for all the great information!

Looks OK... High Speed Bus, out of a T&C....tabs on the side.
Good luck!

If that is the case I think I may try to sell it and pick up one built in 2011 or 2012, after thinking about it I think I would rather have the black background/Jeep logos of the than I would the green backlights/blue background and chrysler logo, anyone have experience making that jump with any advice?
I thought about it....but Ive been to lazy to even attempt to update the software of my 2010 rbz. It bothered me at first, but I don't even notice the Chrysler logo anymore.

I did with a 130 that had satellite before I got my 430. All I did was take thefts out and change them over to the other radio and gring the plastic holes off so it would fit. Not sure if you could do this with the 430 in a 130 case. But I use to work in car audio and a lot can be done to make it work. I've don't a lot of custom fitting jobs with cars that had the radios stolen out and people broke the dash to get them.

Ok I think that's the answer I am looking for
Above advise suggests the USB port on the 430 unit just above the little 1/8 plug will charge and operate features on an iPhone
Does this sound correct
Please note I do not have " u connect "
Thanks much

Jeffcs I did order premium sound system and am enjoying sound now before the warm weather gets here and I take hard top off
Thank you much
I think if store where I ordered was more knowledgeable I might have ended up with connectivity and the 430 not all on them I had idea of exactly what I wanted
Posy rear s model Ac wheels tires up garaged air bags duel tops auto trans
I'm still stoked driving it
Love my jk

A dvd player

Not sure if that is worth $695 to you. If you ordered the Premium sound system, you are better off finding a used 430 or 430N (if you ordered Sirius) and installing it yourself. If you didn't order Premium sound, you are probably better off going aftermarket.

The Connectivity package provide a USB port inside the center console/armrest, along with bluetooth and such.

Now, my guess is that Jeep read the 430rbz thread and jumped in for the 2014 by offering it on the Sports. Of course they screwed it up early on by somehow only including ONE USB port (radio) when someone ordered Connectivity AND the 430rbz in a Sport. But outside of that snafu, if you ordered Connectivity and a 430/430N/730N, you got two USB ports.
