Just got a 2000 Wrangler without a cd player, so I need a new stereo. Found a factory stereo with a cd changer out of a 2001 dodge stratus. Will it work? Thanks in advance

everything will work if you know how to wire it. Do you know the wires from the stereo from the dodge stratus? :)
For the jeep you can get the wiring harness from autozone for few bucks.

Sure don't. I was hoping Chrysler used a universal hook up but I guess not. I figured I could just buy a wiring harness and make it work but I was hoping I could just plug it in

well you could buy one for the dodge cd player just to see which wire is which, then return it lol I dont think they will make "dodge to jeep" harnesses though
Did you try to see if it will fit directly?

No I haven't even bought it yet. For only $35 I guess it is worth the chance

oh wait, what din is the dodge cd player? How tall is it?

I have only seen a picture, but that was my worry it looks smaller

There is a guy on Ebay that sells them, factory radios, he has all the model numbers with pictures and what they will fit. I know on my 97 and 98 the head units are the same in both the TJ's and XJ and I also am assuming the 97ZJ, it may just plug right in.

They both should have the same dodge style plug.As long as they are both 1.5 din they should be the same.I will check to make sure but I think they should interchange.
