New radio/stereo unit options

Wondering what a good aftermarket option is for a radio/stereo replacement. Bluetooth or usb music is required. I also want to try to find something without a ton of lights and buttons.

Any ideas. It needs to fit my 98 xj.

It depends on exactly what you are looking for, but there are a few Kenwood, Pioneer, and JVC units around the $100 price range that should fit the bill, the "higher-end" you go the more buttons, lights, etc. (USB/Bluetooth only, no CD)

I have a Pioneer receiver and OMG THE LIGHTS. It's really bright and kinda distracting, and I haven't figured out a way to dim it. I've gotten over it, but I have considered deleting it entirely and going with an amp and bluetooth adapter.

If you get a single-din receiver, you'll need an adapter to fit it in the hole in your dashboard. This is the one I have.

You'll also need a wiring harness.
If I've never pissed you off, give it time.
