Stereo/ Radio Mount

I want to keep the original radio in the dash for the look but want a new head unit tucked away somewhere that I can still access. Anyone have any ideas of where and how I can mount a new stereo head unit? I still have the original console. Thanks in advance!

Do you mean like one of these?

The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch)
Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area

If you want to keep your original AMC/Jeep Motorola radio, use it but modernize it to the 21st century. I did just that on my OEM radio by adding an mini auxiliary input jack that a phone, Ipod,or other device can plug into and the radio controls the volume. Not hard to do if you know how to solder small wires onto a circuit board.

I show how to do it in a Dash Restoration thread I posted years ago here:

With nothing in the jack, the radio works normally.
With player plugged in, radio is out of circuit and mp3 player or phone feed the speakers.

I have a newer pioneer head unit I already have wired up. It's just laying on the floor right now. Need to mount it to something... Any ideas?

Mount one of these on the floor or under the dash. I've seen quite a few (CB's) connected via bracket to the bottom of the dash.

Also, consider replacing the console, I've got a Tuffy that has a spot for a radio.
