Yes that unit will fit in a TJ. You'll have to get an install kit (can be bought at any best buy/ audio shop or ordered online) and a wiring harness kit.

Double check and make sure that sale is for the whole receiver and not just the detachable faceplate. I see one spot says product weight 1lb but another spot that says weight 6lbs.

As a side note, BOSS is definitely cheaply made product. If you've had any kind of quality head unit(s) in the past, you're likely to not be impressed with the quality of a Boss unit.

Agreed. Not plugging them, have no connection whatsoever with them (besides ordering from), but Crutchfield is a good way to go. They will send mount, harness, adapters, and instructions with your purchase. Customer svc is usually really good too. Their site will find whatever fits your particular model. They will even show "budget minded" stuff for those of us who can't plop down $600 towards stereo equipment.

I don't want to get a tongue lashing for this, just passing some info. :hide:

Thanks for the info ill look into some crutchfied products! You might have just saved me a huge head ache and some cash, Thanks for the tips guys! Ill post when i figure on what im going to stick with.What size do you think would be the max i could fit, just for reference? And i have subs wired into the back of my current unti , i would most likely have to get some sort of an adapter for that as well? (if theres no direct port for them like there is now).

Any DIN sized unit would fit into the TJ. Any DIN-and-a-half should fit as well. Crutchfield usually has a pretty good fitment guide to tell you what will fit..

Also look for a unit that has pre-amp RCA's in the back, most do now-a-days.

^^ this is true too.. since you're running subs, I'd suggest getting a head unit that has a dedicated subwoofer pre-amp output.. this will give you better level control and low pass crossover

I can't find any reviews on it. :whistling:
I research the bejeepers :rolleyes: out of stuff before I buy it. Not trying to dissuade you from buying it, it could be good, but it could be crap. Hate to throw a bill or two at something then hate it or it end up junk. Ask car stereo guys, look up reviews, do some leg work- it will pay off. :thumb:

Thanks for all the help im thinking this one would be better?? Might just go out on a limb , get it , and hope im surprised with the great quality haha http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/view...md=VIDESC&index=17&nav=SEARCH&nid=81255558128

Another swing and a miss. This unit falls into the same class as the BOSS units. Very cheaply made and low quality.

If you're really looking into having a screen, get ready to shell out $300 minimum for anything of decent quality.

As for the $100-$150 range, stick with the intro level alpines, kenwoods, pioneers, etc. Heck, go to a Best Buy and play with several head units in that price range.

Ok I'll keep searching, since I'm pullin everything out and doin some work do you think I should hook up another amp for my front and soundbar speakers? I hear it really helps out with volume and quality

Only if you have or are getting aftermarket speakers. Don't amplify stock speakers.

But my vote is yes.. get aftermarket speakers and amp them!
