Bought from Crutchfield so it came with free wiring harness and fit kit. Install was a breeze with included Jeep directions from Crutchfield. Although they did not specify that to connect the sub-woofer in the console that you need to connect the blue with white line wire to the blue wire on the wiring harness labeled "power antenna." A quick search on the forums found the answer.
Sounds amazing, and works with my Ipod.
Price: $80.00 Pros: (didn't have the option but it's actually a GT57UPW)
A lot of awesome features I have never seen in a radio. Cons: When you press the volume button it changes the settings. This is annoying if you your driving and you go to change the volume but accidently press it in. Recommended? Yes

Price: $118.00 Pros: Custom RGB color display, onboard 7 band eq.
Basic audio package install really easy if you have right bezel and wiring adapter. Cons: Removable faceplate makes model not fit bezels with CD holder slot. Recommended? Yes
Comments: Recently purchased and installed. Minimal listening time, will update with any issues I'm having. 0-32 RGB customization of display color. I matched stock odometer green with relative ease. Will not fit Metra bezels with the CD slot, only the bigger single hole models. Have not hooked up XM but plan to. Just use stock base audio speakers as well. First audio upgrade of many.
Price: $119.99 Pros: USB & Aux out on front of player Cons: Clock is small and hard to see. Recommended? Yes
Comments: I bought my unit from Crutchfield. It came with detailed instructions with pictures of the install in a Jeep. It also came with free fit kit, wiring harness, and antenna connectors.
Very simple install, I took my time and was done in about an hour.
I chose this unit because of success with older versions by Sony and the fact that it has both USB and an Aux cable input right on the face of the player. It's nice that when using an Ipod the radio takes over the controls of the device, so you don't have to keep picking up the Ipod to change tracks or albums.
So far so good. There is a lot of customization that can be done to perfect the sound output as well as the visual interface. I'm still playing with those fuctions, but I'll update this review in 6 months to let you know how I still feel.
