JUst read the whole thing in one sitting, don't know how considering I have severe ADHD, but this is truly amazing, never seen a build thread with so much attention to detail but you're doing it the right way and thats the only way to do it. Great Job

Thank you for your comments. I don't think the newer people who just check in every once in a while to read some of the most current pages get a true sensation of what this CJ7 and I have been through. Posts like yours are what makes it worth taking the time to document the build.

Not unless I come into some inheritance I never knew about.

I don't see much need for a SC on the CJ . All I can envision is my D30 puking out parts in protest.

Yeah, I bought a 9" for my TJ and had it shipped for like $150... but if you were willing to drive it out here and drop it off, it would be well worth it for me... hehehehe

Stereo Head Unit

How about I try to get the build back on track. My stereo head unit finally came in. I decided to go with a digital media player because I don't want to deal with CD's and will mainly just use my Zune, thumb drive or listen to the local FM. You can see all the things it is capable of on the box. Again, I'll likely just control the Zune from the center console 90% of the time.


Here is a picture of the head unit itself. It has a removable face as well.


Here is a picture of the one it is replacing. I believe it is a 1997 model and was a nice stereo. I thought it worked when I pulled it out but when I recently tested it all the lights come on and off as you squeeze the body of the stereo unit. When it is on, all of the screen is showing random garbage. The new one weighs about half as much as the older one but it also doesn't have a CD player. I should be getting all the cables in the next couple of days.

You just made me aware of how far out of reality I am!! I don't even know what half of the things on the box mean! Getting old has its drawbacks...

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

I'm 36 and he just made me feel 80 so don't feel bad. I know what they are but don't know how to use them. But you can't go wrong with alpine.

That's basically it. Can't go wrong with Alpine and I won't ever use half the stuff it is capable of. I don't own an iPod and won't buy one until they are dirt cheap. HD Radio-nope, Satellite radio-won't drive it enough to justify the cost, steering wheel controls-no, bluetooth-no and the Audyssey takes an expensive additional component. I just like it because it is simple and will control my Zune right now or a future iPod. Not badly priced at $153. They just dropped from around $250 because the next model recently came out.

Nice unit does it have the add on USB dock? The head unit i have has a usb dock on it so I can just plug a USB flas drive and play off of that. Its allot easier to carry around then even a zune or an Ipod because it plays all the files on the drive.
