considering your radio was stolen, i'm assuming you've pulled the dash apart to see the internals of the dash section before. I've thought about fabricating a little steel box, that mounts to the 'off-road' mount in the back, and the stronger parts of the dash. you'd basically have a little steel ammo box surrounding the radio, inside the DIN slot. If you make your own DIN adapter, theres plenty of room to surround a DIN radio with 1/8th steel, but 1/16th would probably work fine. Fab a little door on it, with a desk drawer lock on it, and your golden. add a little door strap or clip or something to keep it up/down without rattling when you're driving.

Ive got a detachable faceplate and I dont live in a high crime area anymore, so i'm not worried about it.

I have the stock radio cassette adapter in my TJ I put in a cassette adapter, wired it around back to the glove box where I hooked up a portable CD player. Works like a charm and it's the stock headunit so it doesn't stick out like sore thumb. I just lock my glove compartment and I'm set.

I also have subs hooked up to the factory headunit as well, any info needed, just pm me
