I'll agree with you there, the antenna wire is very flimsy. I was extra careful when tucking it in corners and gave plenty of room to flex if need. This damn thing is going to be my bane now, I can't...

Thought this might help people order, this is what I got from Crutchfield as an all-inclusive package to replace my head unit and 4 speakers (no dash tweeters). Note this is for a 2012 Wrangler, you...

odd, Crutchfield steered me to the iDatalink. There is definitely a wiring diagram with the iDatalink once I logged in and flashed it (must have been on their website iirc). Very handy since I didn't...

agreed. Order if you can't find exactly what you want. Luckily I did but I was close to ordering and no regrets. They told me the same, 4-5 weeks wait at the moment.

I don't believe I have a factory sat antenna, as I bought the vehicle with a plain stock radio (correct me if I'm wrong there). I'd assumed it didn't come with one if you didn't have one installed at...

Best location for a sat radio antenna?

Bought a satellite tuner the other day and easily got it configured... but it's breaking up bad compared to my previous Jeep. I currently have it poking out of the dash just above the radio so the...

Stock radio for sure, its 1 up the line from the absolute basic one. Odd that Crutchfield couldn't pinpoint that, but good that I bought an external sat device.

Thanks for the info!

Kind of funny, I scrubbed the deal yesterday and he called me back today with a lower finance rate, which knocks $30-40 per month off the original offer. I'm sure its going to be a funny story when I...

Sat radio option - built in or external device?

Just speaking to Crutchfield about a new radio and got an unexpected question... is my sat radio built in or external in my 2012? It can be both/either way, according to the Crutchfield rep. Since I...

also curious. I read that the 2-door is only rated for 2500lbs, which extremely limits the campers out there. From what I saw online, you need a very short camper (16-19ft tops) and even then has to...

Mine leaked a fair amount off the lot as well. Turns out the dealership/Jeep actually has a 'guide' on how to minimize leaks (i'm assuming you have a soft top).

What ultimately helped, but might...
