FritzII I bought the 07 cheap with 39,000 miles because it had the death wobble. It does have a line out converter professionally installed with everything run to the back of the JK. The owner removed the additional speakers and amp which wasn't a problem.
I don't think I'm going to run an external amp because this is not my primary vehicle and there are no doors and roof on it for about 8 months out of the year.

In a nutshell, thanx for all the help and comments !!!

panthermark Yeah, I've considered swapping mine out as well. But it is one of those things where I need to know if it works and how it sounds before I would actually buy a Nitro amp. I remember reading something about the early versions of the amps working better than newer versions.

Mr.Dave Ive considered trading out my my amp for the nitro, but to me its a risk. shoot me a pm with an offer if you decide to sell it.

Don't toss it just yet. Maybe you can find the parts cheap...or sell the amp or something. I know people were putting Nitro amps in their premium Wrangler systems for awhile. But I don't think anyone has taken a base Wrangler system and turned it into a premium system. Most just go aftermarket amp.

lolpetewtf Upgrade your stereo, you'll be glad you did.

Rico1111 Try some of the other jk sites. I guarantee you can make it work. There are many threads on using the nitro amp Many have said it is plug and play so it is def compatible you just need to wire it in. Good luck

If that is the case, it won't be that easy. The base and premium systems have different wiring harnesses. I think it would be a hassle to rewire.
Ha with so many different car audio brands its good to be a little more clear.
