Replacement of Factory Radio

Hello all, just recently purchased my 2011 Jeep Liberty. It's all stock, however the radio is pretty crappy; there's a CD stuck in it, and I'd like to upgrade to another factory radio. I've been looking at the 430N radios on eBay, but I just want to make sure of the correct model number for my 2011 Liberty. Any advice? Thanks

A Patriot has a Low Speed canbus radio a Liberty is a high speed canbus radio.

You can easily replace a factory radio with another factory style as long as the bus speed is the same. A JK radio will work in a Liberty but not in a Patriot.

I'm, mot sure if you have a Patriot or a Liberty because you said both but whatever EBay radio you look at, find out what bus speed it is. Match the speeds and you will be OK.

Thanks Cranbiz, that's what I needed to know. I own a LIBERTY. Sorry for the confusion; I think autocorrect got the best of me.
