Can you tell me what product you used to add an aux port to a stock stereo?

Horn5413 Did a lot of upgrades on mine to get good sound with the top off at speed. Sounds amazing just sitting there also.. But remember at speed in a jeep with the top off if you can hear your music so can everyone around you..

I think I spent $700 for everything including all wiring and everything was quality gear.
Thats a lot of mileage dude!!! how do you foot the gas bill? just kidding! None of us have bought the jeep for its mileage.

On a serious note seems like you have a great set up, would you please share the details?

lindel KDC-248u

Got it from Quadratec. It might have been discontinued, but the KDC-255u seems to have the same features.

JimsJeep What radio
04-25-2013 05:05 PM
lindel $80 on a Kenwood head unit, another $35 for some Pioneer 6.5" speakers in the soundbar, and about $15 for 5.25" adapters for the front speakers (PO had installed some 5.25" Cerwin Vegas in the sound bar) and I can hear it just fine with the top on or off, at highway speeds.

Tdog02 I spent $10 on polyfill to stuff the sound bar and I can hear mine ok. The sound isn't great, I have a kenwood head unit the PO installed and the factory sub doesn't work. I plan on putting the six speaker sound bar in this year, and making the sub work. I like music clear but not loud. I have a soft top and with it on it sounds louder than when the top down.

After $800 worth of kit or if you don't go over 55mph, yes.

Edit: I lied, you can probably hear it reasonably well for $400.
