Yes I'm still here
Well I installed the thing and used it for about 4 years or so and I just sold that Jeep this past May as I picked up a 05 LJ.
The kit worked well, I even ended up selling it earlier this year to a fellow member on this forum that used it to run his hardtop. I do have the wiper and defrost switches still left I believe so if you need those let me know!
You can purchase the kit for a couple of hundred or make your own. Not sure how comfortable you are with wiring.
In regards to the stereo, thats what I paid for it a couple of years back. As you can tell from the pics (see my 97 TJ Build thread in the sig for more pics) it was quite a hack job, the unit works well.
This was one of the items I removed from my 97 and moved over to the 05, which then was a straight plug and play. No issues with the unit, except maybe 1 out of 10 times there won't be music coming out of it - a simple power off on the unit and back on the music works.
I like the fact it has bluetooth, navigation etc on it and on top of that it keeps the stock look.
There is a thing now on the market to buy a 2 DIN dash bezel which allows you to install one of the 2DIN radios which are more easily found since Jeep uses a 1.5 standard and those are not really available except what I have and the Jeep RB1 unit which is very outdated.
