My CJ doesn't even HAVE a radio or a place to put one! And I'm not cutting one, either. If I ever do put tunes in it, it'll be a small amp in the tool compartment, a pair of bookshelf stereo speakers and my iPod...
We also have a 1969 Olds with a stock FM Stereo in it. there are two "Boxes" one in the dash ans a second mounted inback of the dash to get the stereo. They also used the body as a ground for the second wire to the rear speaker.

Can anyone answer the question for the AM/FM/CB radio do you need a special antenna or does the spliter match the CB to the stock FM antenna?

Yes it goes through the Regular Radio Antenna. This Should help.

Don't mean to hijack....but is there a fairly "cheap" CB unit that will fit in place of the stock radio ? I already have a console w/ my cd player in it.... and was either going to put a cb in the stock hole or use it for toggle switches.....

Apart from that the only AMC thing about them is the sticker applied to the front.
Has anyone tried one of these units? How was fitment to dash?

Well I hate to say it but I'm back on this topic.

I had installed a stock AM/FM/CB radio in place of the stock AM/FM radio.

It worked fine all last year and for the first few days this year when I got the Jeep out.

Then the FM just quite.

I'm going to send it out to be restored.

I need tunes though while it is being fixed.

I would like to get another AM/FM stock radio to plug up while a wait. I can always resale it later.

Not all plugs in the rear are the same, this is the ones that I have, one square, one flat, and power.



Got one in good shape for sale, know a source?
