I need a new radio in my CJ

The crappy *** Jensen radio that the previous owner had put in, and I had been nursing along has finally kicked the bucket. Hopefully y'all will have some good recommendations for what to put in in its place, AUX compatible is always a plus As always, thanks for your time!

Are you using the stock mounting location with the cut-outs? If so, this is the radio I will be getting when I decide to get one. It has the aux jack for stuff like an ipod. Nice feature for sure.

Sadly I think that the previous owner modified the radio slot, so as amazing as that radio could look, I would probably have to fabricate a new plate or something to make that work. Although, it may be worth it.

I ordered it to use in my CJ about a month ago(which the PO cut the dash on) and it comes with the trim plate, but I had a locking center console with a 1 DIN cutout in it that wasn't being used....so I ended up using my Kenwood instead. If you're interested let me know, that's my local ad link.

@draperjojo Great! I have to patch the hole in my driver floor pan first ( I've grown tired of fred flintston-ing it) but I will absolutely keep that in mind. Thank you!

This is the same one I have in my Subaru and it works great. Its a cheaper priced stereo but it really works good, and has all the hookups that you want. Also it doesn't light up the cab like others do so it wont blind you at night.

That is the same thing I posted, only the more expensive version. They are both retro sound. If the one I posted isn't going to work, that one won't either.

I like these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1978-1986-Je...ht_2415wt_1318

When it's off, it looks like an old dial radio, when it's on it shows an LCD screen. Mine has been cut to a single DIN so this won't work for mine.

It even says "Jeep" on it.

I spend $20 on a second hand one and put a plastic canopy above it. Try to keep some rain out but they do not last that long.
