Agreed. They have a lot of nice features to them and mine sounds great. Pretty good power out of such a little radio. Plus, it has a USB connection along with two more aux inputs in the back. Its nice being able to use my IPod. I really like mine because it looks "correct" in a CJ.

It's a different brand stereo, but I picked up a "stock" looking one from Vintage Vibes. http://www.vintagevibes.net/jeep_cj.htm

They have two models; one with USB/iPod inputs ($229) and one without ($169).

It's nice and short so it fits perfectly behind the dash and it looks great with the Jeep lettering.

I like that. It's got a bit more power and it comes with a usb port on a 14" cord. Thanks for sharing. How's the sound quality, and how well does it find distant FM stations and hold them?

I'm still in the build stage so I've only had it temporarily turned on in the barn. So far it sounds good and loud through the Infinity speakers I installed in the dash but I guess I won't really know until I finish and get it out on the road. I'll provide an update once I've had a chance to hear it over the road noise.

If you zoom in you can see I'm running the original in the dash. Pretty cool!

I bought that one, as well. So far, I'm very happy with it. I just switched out the knobs and slid on Jeep factory knobs.

Did you already have the factory knobs? I see you can get them with the Zuma or Retrosound radios but I don't see them for sale alone. I did see some NOS knobs on flebay for $199. but that aint happenen

I bought a set of factory knobs (4 pcs.) on ebay for $64.00. I wanted them, and didn't have much of a choice, otherwise...

The cost of OEM knobs is one of the reasons I pull them off, along with the ash tray and cigarette lighter when parking anywhere for a long period of time out in public.

I know I've paid more than I wanted for items I had to have. $64.00 is better than $199. I'll keep looking. Thanks

I haven't done that YET, but I think that I might, from now on...what the heck-they're small enough to keep in my pocket.

Guys,
I started another thread asking about what bezel you all used when installing a retrosound Zuma (thread located here). I thought the subscribers of this thread might be able to offer some insight. Seems I still have a gap around the factory hole in the dash and the Zuma. Retrosound is researching this for me, but so far they don't have a solution so I might have to send it back and pony up the difference for the vintage vibes? Not sure though.

Any suggestions?

I don't know the size of the radio from RetroSound but below is the dash hole and opening sizes for late model CJ's.
