I am very pleased with everything I have read so far and can't wait to get in and drive it.
However, I was very disappointed to learn from my dealer that I could not get the MyGig Infotainment system on the Sport. I am guessing that the production line, when set up for sports, is not capable of putting them in. I do like the idea of some sort of hard drive/mp3/gps solution so I am looking at aftermarket solutions. I have been checking around and heard some people say how hard it is to get the factory radio out, is there any place that you all have specs or instructions on removing those?
Also, I am curious as to the response that you all have been getting with the Skyslider. I really like the idea, however I did not get one because they are brand new and I don't want to have to worry about it leaking or rattling a bunch two years down the road (snow and below 0 temps in winter to a baking 105 degrees in summer here). How has the feedback been on the Skyslider and can you talk a little bit about how it was tested and what life expectancy you all have for it? (i.e. would you compare it to the expectancy of a soft top on a wrangler?)
In regards to your "My Gig" question-
With Navigation: Ask your dealer to order part number 82211473 for a radio kit- Which is the "RER" or "My Gig" radio with Navigation feature, owner's manual, and GPS antennea
W/o Navigation: If you want to save some $$$ and do not need navigation - Order part 05064245AH, this is the "My Gig" radio without Navigation
- With regards to installing another radio: To install another Chrysler radio that shares the same technology as your Liberty, it would be very easy. However, if you are trying to install an aftermarket radio,the current electrical architecture will make it quite difficult.
With regard to the Sky Slider, everyone that I know that has driven one immediatly falls in love with it. The testing was very extensive. It is designed to function trouble free for over 10,000 cycles. They ran it through a brushless auqasonic car wash for 8 hours straight without leaks, built a dam around the edge and mounded snow/ice then let it thaw, etc. All the concerns you voice were considered and addressed from design thru manufacture and testing. The top material is actually very similar to the Wrangler soft top, with slightly more pliability to recover from the repetitive folding. The response from journalist and consumers has been overwhelmingly positive, once you experience it, you will love it.
Have fun out there!
