Radio Replacement Suggestions
 
The factory radio in my 88 yj has quit. I would like a new replacement but would like something simple; I am a narly throwback of another time and don't really require cd, mp3, ipod capability; just want an am/fm stero radio.

I have been going thru the websites and not finding anything.

Are there any saviors out there for my needs?

Another forum member (s3nt3nc3d, thanks again:D) recently recommended the site daveysjeeps.com to me. You can drop them an email and ask if they have any original factory stereos that would work for your jeep.

I can't take full credit... another member recommended it to me the day before I recommended it to you. lol

But yeah, that would work well...or even just a simple aftermarket radio from Walmart or something. You can find really cheap radios for like $15...plus you'll need the wiring kit and a mounting kit. Looking at a minimum of bout $50.

Thanks for the suggestions. Davey's Jeeps responded quickly. I ended up going to a local yard and found a radio from a yj. Installation went well and sounding well.

How much did they charge you for it, might I ask?

I'm trying to sell my old factory unit from my 2002 TJ...but have NO idea what to price it at. Must be too high right now cuz I ain't even gotten a nibble so far.

Paid 30.00. The same radio I removed with cassette player.
