Cd player for off road
My venerable OEM CD player is dead and I'm looking to replace it. The Mopar units are crazy expensive so I'm thinking of a regular car CD player, but want one that won't destroy my CDs when bumping through the woods. Any ideas or recommendations?
How's that Hope and Change workin for ya?

Get an aftermarket unit that has a aux port. Then download your music on to an (I think I have this right) MP3 player or similar mobile device. Then hook up this portable device to your new stereo to listen to your tunes. My first MP3 player could hold a total of about 16 songs (back in 1999) but I am told these new devices hold much more....probably a couple CDs worth of songs if you get a really really good one. Plus you can take the songs with you and not leave them in a jeep to get stolen, though, not really sure who steals CDs these days.

As already stated, one with an aux port allows you to hook up an mp3 player or your phone via its headphone jack. Mine also has a USB port and you can put a thumb drive in it. I got a 16gb thumb drive off newegg for about $10 I think that only sticks out about 1/4 inch from the front of the head unit. I actually put the same head unit in both my jeep and my car and have two of the thumb drives. Several options for music. It has a cd player, but I've never put a cd in it.

But, that does not help the millions of dual purpose rigs out there with failing factory head units.
Check out: http://www.crutchfield.com/ You can put in your Jeep model, year, etc. and they will show you car units that will fit your stock radio location. They also have everything you need to install it. I would get Bluetooth and make sure it has at least an aux port (looks like the plug for a set of headphones), and you can even get them with a usb port just like on a computer. Then you can get a usb flash drive and load mp3's on it and just plug it right in to the radio. Heck, if you want to spend the $ you can even get one with a screen and nav built in too!
