Things don't get wet often but I do have a problem with water leaks in the doors and end up with puddles on the floor when it pours. The other problem with many threads is that they are years old and you can't purchase the models being reviewed. Thanks for your help!
I have a Pioneer DEHP-9400 in my '04. It is also Satellite ready, and easy to wire up if you want that route. It has two rear USB inputs, so you can run an 10 foot extension to anywhere that you want to have a USB input. I run my iPhone off of it, and you can stream Pandora, and the unit will actually control it. All you do is hook it up, switch your source on the unit to Pandora, start the app, and you can control your stations and song skips right on the Pioneer.
As far as waterproofing, you could re-run the wiring to the sound pods underneath the roll bar padding. I can't remember if those are ran under the carpet or already under the padding, but either way getting them off of the floor if they are there would be pretty easy.
Also, Kenwood, Sony, and a few others make Marine rated CD players.
