Bluetooth in Wranglers

I am buying an 09 Wrangler X Unlimited. They are trying to find one that is bluetooth. But they are having difficulty finding one. They are suggesting that they just switch out the non-bluetooth radio for a bluetooth radio.

I need some advise as to whether this will work and some pointers to make sure that if they do this that the bluetooth will work after I close the deal.

Thanks!

perhaps better in the JK technical forum...

I do not see why there would be a problem since many aftermarket radios have bluetooth if I am not mistaken...

It will not work in a wrangler anyhow. They are simply too noisy. Even strong aftermarket units don't work in wranglers. Too much noise. The people will never understand you trying to talk through a hands free-through-radio setup in a wrangler. Don't waste your time looking. You are extremely unlikely to find one. From my knowledge, even the dealers do not sell them with blue tooth as an option for the wranglers.

I can't imagine any setup relying on a speakerphone that would work in a Wrangler. Now my cheap-*** $8 headset works fine... when it wants to stay synced

If you get the RER radio, you can buy the mopar mic for $41 go to the engineering menu and activate it. Then you can link your bluetooth phone. The details are in numerous places on the web. I currently have the hard top on and it works great even on the highway.

The MyGig unit actually has pretty damn good noise cancellation as opposed to Pioneer and Alpine units. The soft top is obviously noiser than the hard top, but I've had more issues hearing people than people hearing me.

Actually, that isn't always true. The big 7 layer sail cloth soft top with full doors was the quietest combination unless you further insulated the hard top. Later years they dropped to a 4-layer, but still sail cloth, which on the dB meter is roughly equal to the hard top (unless again, you insulate the hard top) if running full doors. Half doors, all bets are off. Pre-sailcloth soft tops were noisy in any configuration. The Besttop replacement sailcloth top is the quietest option of all that I have measured to date.
