CD Player Skipping??

Is there any good product to put in between the CD Player and the bottom of the Dash so there will be less of a bump and so it doesnt skip. Or is there any high quality instal kit that will do the trick? Mine skips more than ever!

The only real protection is a good anti-skip cd player. We used to try mounting them in foam or rubber but after much trial and error we found out a good solid mount was best. The internals are insulatde against minor vibration already and trying to insulate the outside without a correct suspension setup actually increased internal shock forces.

And a good anti-skip CD player is normally one that just has a good long electronic buffer inside. It still skips due to the Jeep's suspension or rough roads but the electronic buffer stores enough music that the the buffer fills in during the skip well enough that the skip is never heard.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

Sony is the only brand out right now - that I know of - that has anything like anti-skip. Other brands just have some buffers on them, but they do well, for the most part. And to me, Sony is not the brand that you want to go with.
Your problem may just be that the laser is mis-aligned or needs cleaned. If you can get it taken care of professionally, do it.
