Hi! My 2015 Wrangler just hit 100K miles, and like clockwork, things are falling apart. I have the base model, no UConnect, just standard AM/FM, CD, AUX port. A few weeks ago, my AUX port quit - seems like a bad connection. Then yesterday, my AM/FM went out - just stopped working, with it occasionally coming back on for a few seconds / minutes. I read through a few forms, but in all honesty, I am a little out of my league with terminology here. I was hoping someone could help by dumbing it down a bit for me. Based on what I read, it's either something that has to get sent out and repaired and will cost $300-350. However, if I'm spending that much already, I'd like to consider replacing it / upgrading. I'm hoping for recommendations on how I can upgrade cost effectively and with minimal modification. Can anyone provide details about specific radios / what's involved in upgrading? I appreciate any help & hope to become less of a bozo with this stuff at some point :)

Start by looking at www.crutchfield.com, type in your vehicle information and see what’s available. Decide what you want and how much you are willing to spend. If you want to do it yourself, search Youtube to see how to take the dash apart to get into it. Crutchfield will help choose all the parts and tools you’ll need and their support people can be very helpful. Based on your post you might be better off finding a local car audio store to purchase and do the install, but you won’t be going in blindly and will know how much you are paying for the install vs parts and doing it yourself if you start with Crutchfield and Youtube.
