Radio help?!

Does anyone know if a stock JK style radio will fit in a jeep tj? And will you need to make any changes to the harness?

It will not fit, and it will not wire in. The JK radio is turned on and processes audio via the Jeep's Canbus system. TJ's do not have the Canbus, so it will not work.

Here's this thread that talks about options with the stock radio. IMO it's worth replacing the whole head unit, but there are options so you don't have to.

they sell input adapters that use a headphone style plug to tap into the factory unit but lack sound quality. save up for a new headunit that has the options you want.
