If you switch it with a RHB 430n head unit it will all work fine. That's what I did. But if you switch it with the 730n unit I think you have to do something with the uconnect module since that head unit has it built in to it. I did a lot of research before I swapped mine out and I'm pretty sure that's what I read. I'm happy with my 430n head unit overall. I don't know if you have satellite radio in yours but if you do, the antenna doubles as the nav antenna as well. So if you don't, you'll need to route the antenna.

I got lucky, a guy I work with at the dealer was selling an RHB unit for $400. Brand new still had plastic on the screen.

If you get a JK with the 130S with Bluetooth the 430N and code will be all that you need. If you get a JK with a 130 without Bluetooth then you will also need the Bluetooth mic, wiring... along with the 430N and code.

Keep an eye out on the forums and eBay. I was in no rush so I kept checking every few days. I got an almost new 430N for $500 from a guy who just bought his jeep, installed an aftermarket unit and just wanted it out of his garage. I see them for $500-800 all the time. Of course you can get something a lot better aftermarket for the price, I just wanted to keep it stock.

That's what I want is to keep it OEM. If I can't find one soon I'm getting the Alpine 007. It's set up to work with iPhones which is perfect for me.
