What do I need to upgrade to my new head unit?

I was reading on wjjeeps and it just completely blew me away with information. I have an 01 and it said I have the old connecting pin set up that was changed in 2002 and I needed an adapter ton convert it. But then later it said that I needed this. I am so confused as to what I need. I want this head unit and I am keeping the stock amp with new speakers. http://www.amazon.com/Kenwood-KDC-25...glink121868-20 Such a headache.

This is what you need according to wjjeeps. You can also call up Crutchfield and ask them. They're generally have pretty good customer service.

technically you can install it with just the new head unit and a dash mounting kit...going this route will require you to solder the new harness on the head unit onto the existing wires in your jeep. It's the way I put mine in, a bit more time consuming but it is a much cleaner install as far as the wiring, plus you save the money for the wiring harness adapter.

If you want to do it this way just let me know and I will send you a copy of the wiring diagram for your radio so you will be able to identify what wires to solder to the new unit.

If you order off crutchfield they include dash kit and wiring harness for free.

Agree with jeep-drivin. I just changed mine and ordered it from crutchfield. When you go to their site you can search by what fits your vehicle. From there just look for a unit that says includes free installation hardware (or something to that effect). These will come with everything you need to install it and good instructions. And if you have questions they are good about helping.
