Comments: I have no doubt that this is a good iPod hookup kit, but with my stock radio (RBK) it's a bit hard to use.

Since my radio has no universal screen (it only displays the time and a few numbers), the iPod kit has to read the options to you.

What's worse is that it won't read the song titles or artists to you, it will only read the options ("Playlists", "Genres", etc). I just leave it on shuffle and let it choose the songs.

Eventually, I'll upgrade to an after market head unit and it won't be a problem anymore.

If you have a mopar radio with a real screen (RB1, RB4, RBQ, etc) then it's a great kit, but if you have the RBK, your money would be better spent on a new head unit.

Mopar iPod / MP3 Adapter
Pros: Access to thousands of songs, and no more CD burning! Works on RBQ, RBP, RB1, RAZ, RAH, and RBK.
Cons: Only shows the first eight characters of the song/ album/ artist name (except for the RB1 deck... see photo below).
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have installed the Mopar iPod Kit in my '06 TJ and '04 KJ. Here is a write-up (with photos of the TJ install). I originally posted this at:
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=281774

The install on the TJ was much more work. For the box that goes between the stereo and the iPod, in the TJ there was no room for the box around the stereo. The instructions had me remove the instrument panel and put the box in behind the panel. I had to take a lot of the dash covers off to do the install. Thankfully I had found someone's write up on how to remove a stock stereo. The "drawings" that come along with Mopar parts are very lacking (thanks a lot Mopar!). For one, the stereo on the TJ had a security nut behind it. It would have been a lot harder to figure out where the nut was and how to get at it without the write up. Thank God for internet! I ended up reaching through the glove box to get at the nut with a wrench.

I did also use another write up for pulling out the stereo on the KJ. It was much easier, plus it had no security bolt. My only issue was that I couldn't seem to locate where the antenna unplugged from the stereo? I wasn't able to reach far enough back and find the connector. Luckily I didn't have to pull out the stereo all the way, so there was no need to unhook the antenna. On the TJ, the antenna wire runs right behind the glove box and it was easy to unplug.

This was a great mod, and the wife and I are very happy to have this. I highly recommend this install to all! It's easy to select playlists and different songs, and the titles display on the stereo (well at least the first eight characters do). I have also purchased some audio books via iTunes that were too long to fit onto a CD, so this solves that problem. Plus, no more burning CD's!

To change playlists...
1) Hit preset one... and "playlist" appears.
2) The seek buttons (up/ down) will then take you through the playlists.
3) When you find the playlist you want, hit "pty", and it goes into that list.
4) Then the seek buttons (up/ down) go through the songs in a playlist.

The other preset buttons browse artists, albums, genres, and preset five shuffles songs in the playlist. Also, the very first playlist that appears is "all songs"... on the iPod.

The scan buttons (up/ down) move you through songs.

The "mod" button switches to the radio, or CD, to iPod.

The steering wheel controls on the KJ do work as well.

The stereo in the TJ is RBQ, and in the KJ is RBP. The instructions books says for use that it also works with models RB1, RAZ, RAH, and RBK.

The kits were purchased from:
