I am thinging about replacing mine also, because sometimes the CD won't eject unless I pound on the dash. I haven't checked, but I would think they would make different models of the same unit to fit different applications.

I would check with a store like Best Buy or an automotive sound shop.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Any single-DIN stereo will fit with a dash kit. That's 90% of the heads on the market.

If you can find a DIN-and-a-half head unit you like, it'll fit directly (and be the same size as the factory unit). Pioneer has a couple most stores carry.

ZJ's use 1.5 Din, but I doubt you'll find an aftermarket 1.5 din pretty easily. Get a 1DIN unit and a radio install kit from autozone. Kit is $20, and you should invest in a nice headunit, which is a couple hundred dollars for a quality one, maaybe ipod in, HD Radio. Good stuff. Still, dont buy a Cheapo Dual or insignia, I made that mistake before, my insignia doesnt read anything anymore, its just crap
