Cassette versions pop up on ebay. That's your best bet if you want OEM.

Jeep Wrangler YJ Factory Radio 019 | eBay

I have my original in storage, but I plan to refurbish it and maybe use it eventually.

I used iSimple ISFM22 TranzIt Universal Bluetooth Enabled FM Transmitter with the factory radio.

I bought a JVC at walmart for 100 bucks. I has am/fm/usb/aux/bluetooth/pandora/iHartRadio/cd. You can change what sources you want to see so I only see AM/FM/BlueTooth. It was 'fun' to install. I old radio didn't have a constant power so it would reset every time I got in my jeep. I re did the wiring and it works great

Haha, this guy!

I still use the tape deck that the thing came with when I picked it up about two years ago. Music while driving in a jeep: don't really care about audio quality, just meant to help pass the time if it's a long drive.

I save listening to music with good quality for when I'm at home and can just sit back and chill. 😜

I bought a Dual stereo at Advance Auto similar to this one.....

Dual Electronics 15 x 4 Channel 60W Mechless Digital Media Receiver XR4120: Advance Auto Parts

Only difference was mine is 200 watts. I love it. It's perfect for a jeep. You can put all your music on a memory stick and not worry about CD's being stolen.

I put in a SiriusXM radio and that was a mistake. I can't hear the darned thing when I'm on the highway!! Forget the radio unless you also get a Bluetooth headset.

Crutch field includes wire harness and dash adapters. I have been happy with Alpine. The unit in my towrig has Pandora mode. Not necessary, but, handy. My music is also loaded on Nano USB.
