Stereo fit kit anywhere?

Hey there, I am a new owner a 94 XJ after I totaled my Cobra I wanted something different...and slower. lol. Anyways, love my XJ and It didn't have a radio in it. So I had a spare sony stereo from my girls car and I wired it all up to make sure it worked...well I spent hours upon hours upon DAYS looking for a fit kit. I ordered 1 that I thought would fit and I didn't even read what vehicles it mounted to. Well, after receiving it I found out it DOES not fit my 94 XJ. Is there anywhere that I can find a stereo installation fit kit for this thing? Or am I SOL? Thanks in advance!!

Try Crutchfield. I bought my son a stereo for his '90 from them and it came with the mounting kit. They sell it separately.

Just my opinion, yours will differ.

Like Jim stated, try Crutchfield. They should be very helpful over the phone as well. Quadratec sells install kits for Sony's that are plug and play, harness adapter that connects to factory and is Sony specific. I have a Sony head unit with a Scosche HU mount and speaker wire adapters. No cutting or splicing.

I don't buy car audio supplies anywhere but Crutchfield. Their prices may not always be the best, but the free installation kits and vehicle-specific installation instructions are great. Their customer service is top-notch, and they have lots of informative articles and other reference material on their site that can really get a novice up to speed on many things.

Best buy and Walmart always have them around here. I've never bothered with one and never had a problem with any of my decks moving around or coming out.

X2 best buy definitely would, and wallyworld is also a fairly strong bet on getting one from there
If not would simply amazon-ing it work?

Yes, Crutchfield, Walmart, Best Buy, auto parts stores, etc. usually have them as others stated. That being said I had two different ones and didn't like they way either of them fit (and one of them broke a mounting tab). So I made some brackets from 22 ga. sheet steel (you should be able to find this at any hardware store), pre-96 XJs already have a DIN sized opening so an aftermarket radio fits well without any "fit-kit" but the stock radio is front mount so you need to make some kind of bracket that screws to the side of the radio and the two mounting holes on the front of the dash (basically an L bracket).
