Do you have a module that allows you to use the steering wheel controls to control the aftermarket hu?

Got the sub. amplifier power and signal wires ran underneath the carpet. Just gotta Hookup the ground and power cables to the amp, signal cable to the headunit and back together goes the dash!

Also, Dad bought a boat load o parts. To name a few... platinum plugs, plug wires, tensioner pulley, idler pulley, trans filter/pan gasket, both hatch struts, cv boots for both sides of the d30, the tool for put them on/off, drive belt, all 3 wiper blades, 12 quarts of tranny fluid ($60 right there), distributor cap and rotor and pcv valve and hose.

Let's say I'll be busy tomorrow.
yeah ive got the steering wheel controls too..is it possible to intergrate those with the new HU? thanks man

as for me, today i drove it to work in back..it was 40 degrees out. i parked with my back tires up on a small snow bank. not showing off it was just so i could get the jeep in the parking spot but the funny part was when i came out, it had all melted haha.

Pulled the Radio/CD/Cassette player out of the dash in anticipation of getting a new one later this week. The old one did not work, now I have a hole in the dash for a few days.
