Yes, if you get the correct unit, it is 100% plug and play. A 15 minute job.

DozerJeeper If you're really serious about swapping it out, let me know. I'm sure we could work something out.

Doctorsti I didn't upgrade the sound in my 10th anniversary because if I do anything I'm going to get way further in the aftermarket.

I think one factor that may affect value is if the Chrysler vehicle has to be wired specifically for the 430 or 730.

if it takes up too much space you could just send it to menot available as an option for us lowly sport ownerslol

You have a Rubi, so you have the Premium Sound sytem.

The problem isn't the really the Head Unit, it is the amp.
Actually, it is a horrible combination of the two.

If you really want better sound, you need to tear out the amp as well.....and basically start from scratch. The processing is in the amp, not the HU. Lot of threads on the situation...no great (inexpensive) solution.

MistiC NiNja Agree, I'm searching for a deal on an RBZ non-nav myself, but as others have said its going to be a hit. I'm at a $300 price point, so it may be a good idea to go aftermarket. But I understand wanting to stay with an OEM look

Once you get 15 posts, you can put up for sale in the wanted portion.

I'm sure there is a market for them, but you are going to take a pretty big hit. I'd guess that they would go for $500-$600 being as new as it is.

I got my 430 RBZ (non-nav) for $260 shipped...but I looked hard for that deal.

lukewharton By any chance are you the guy who came into my work (cartoys) earlier today? Haha

dalearyous for $1000 to go from 130 to 430 you could put in a killer aftermarket head unit and speakers etc ...
