    Anyone have good radio advice?

    I have a 1998 Wrangler Sport. It has the stock boring ol' radio that, honestly, is a good radio. But, being who I am, I need better. The DORMAN 586012 would be the next step up if i wanted to keep the stock look. It has everything. CD, Cassette, and an AUX cord hook up. my only question is will it fit with no modifications?

    For me, I wouldn't spend any time installing a radio that doesn't have bluetooth. It is soooo nice to just pair my phone to my stereo and play music, podcasts, pandora, GPS, etc from my phone. I would just look through Crutchfield: Car Stereo, Speakers, Home Theater, Pro Audio, 4k TV and find what works best for me, but I don't care about the stock look.


    If you're big into the stock appearance, you could try something like this:
    http://www.amazon.com/iSimple-IS31-A...dapter+antenna
    Which would add bluetooth to your existing stereo. The sound won't be as good as other options, but at 22 bucks it's hard to go wrong.

    He has a very good point about getting a radio that has a bluetooth capable, its really helpful and much safer.
