I have the iPAC-CHY from Pacific Accessory Corporation. I am at school so I can't grab the link, but if you do a quick google search you can find them. I have a regular 6.5 Gen (Classic) Ipod so I can't vouch if it works with a touch, phone,or pad. But it is a harness that hooks to the back of the REC unit. It charges the ipod, the steering wheel, radio, and ipod controls are all functional too.

The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't display anything on the screen. I don't believe there is any integration that has that feature.

The only one mopar has is an "RF" mod. My understanding is that it fits in line with the antenna. I was going to order it too until I found that out.
It was explained to me by my service adviser that Mopar was having issues keeping up with the constant updates that Apple was making to the software on ipods. That is why they discontinued manufacturing the adapter.

I had the same problem. Mopar are not selling them anymore. However, I did a search on the part number #82209617AD and found out that Chrysler uses exactly the same thing! So I went to the local Chrysler dealer and ordered one. It works perfectly! No problems, like I said it even has the same part number and still available. I THINK it is for the 300C, but not sure.
Hope this helps.
BTW, this was for a 2006 JGC with the REC radio

iPac Chy (iPod Aux Input) - Product Information - iCarKits

I have this installed in my Jeep. I can use my steering wheel controls to scroll songs and what not. The only bummer is that the songs do not display on the radio screen, so I just turn on the Nav instead.
