Swapping Stock Head Unit for a Stock Touck Screen?

Hello All.

I recently purchased a '10 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited and love it.
Unfortunately I had to take what was available on the lot and the one thing this Jeep lacked for me was a touch screen navigation head unit.
I put out a few feelers to get my hands on one to swap into my Jeep and I think I found one but......

I would like to know if I will run into any problems doing this? Will it be a direct swap or am I in for some issues? Does the radio contain computers that run airbags or security etc. like on some of the GM cars like my old Grand Prix?

Thanks in advance for any help.

should b a plug and play switch out, just be sure the unit you are getting is a high speed not a low speed unit and you will need a gps ant. good luck I also am looking at doing this let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the reply and the tip about the antenna. I will have to inquire about it on the one I want to buy. I just assumed they were built in like on a portable GPS.

Also what are you referring to when you say "high speed" ?

high speed and low speed refers to the canbus speed, hard to explain i guess but the wrangler reguires the high speed unit. thank of it as the electronic handshake between the jeep and the nav unit...something to due with the computer also I assuming you already have sat. radio since your jeep is a sahara so you will be good there but if you dont have the Uconnect feature you will also need the mic kit to use that feature too.

I'm looking to do the same in the future. If you find a head unit at a decent price, please share. They are freaking expensive.
