Unfortunately just found out that unless I spend a large amount of money I can not install a double din stereo - I didn't do my research. So it's either a flip out or the 730 for my 2011 Wrangler Unlimited... anyone wanna throw in here?

When you say saved in your phonebook, do you mean you verbally made phonebook entries, or phonebook/contacts get downloaded into a folder everytime you enter the JK and your phone connects to Uconnect?

I've said it before on here, just because your phone pairs and allows you to make/receive calls doesn't mean it is 100% compatible.

Why is that? Double DIN stereos are generally in the same price range as singles- Mark W.

Umm, there's only about 30 seconds more work to fit a double-DIN than a single- not sure where you got that it's any more work from, but it's quite untrue. Running a double DIN on mine, and it fits beautifully- Mark W.

Really!

OK, I'm quite obviously uninformed and a newb at most things pertaining to vehicles and it's audio equipment.

The people I've been talking to out here told me I would have to fiberglass the middle panel, or cut it up. Granted the people I've talked to are from Fry's Electronics and an independently owned audio installation store. Also, I have found a couple threads saying the same thing.

I would be ecstatic if I could get this stereo in and not have to return it. I'm not a fan of the motorized ones. Wrangler is going to hook me up with some pics of his when he gets a chance, and it's much appreciated. Anyone have a sort of walk through thread?

I'll start googling a little more.

:hijacked: sorry

BTW I spent all weekend trying to find someone to install this damn thing. :banghead:

I haven't worked on the 2011 yet, but it looks like it's definitely still the same double DIN dash opening. I can't imagine they've changed much behind there. I'd pull the stocker, and look into it. Shouldn't be too different, though- Mark W.
