Normally, the different part numbers indicate different units.
There are units that have AM/FM only, AM'FM/cassette, AM/FM/Cassette/CD, AM/FM/cassette/remote CD. The Infinity Gold AM/FM/cassette/CD you have has a three band equalizer, while the one with remote CD has a 5 band equalizer.
Pretty much all these units will fit in your Jeep (as long as they are for the ZJ and not the WJ), however, a key issue is the steering wheel control connector. The base units do not have a connector for that function.
Reputable sellers will specifically point out whether or not a radio has that function. If it isn't mentioned, assume it doesn't exist.
