Ive got a 2008 Jeep Wrangler unlimited and i want to put in a 1 din HU stereo. Where could I buy an adapter to get it to fit properly?
also i wouldnt mind if any of you recommended a sweet *** HU for it $350<
something with it own customizable EQ(ie-BASS, TREBLE, FADE, BALANCE, ect)
so far i like in no particular order
1.Pioneer DEH-P9800BT
2.Pioneer DEH-P7900BT
3.Alpine iDA-X100
3.Alpine IDA-X001
4.Alpine iDA-X200
i like the alpines a lot but they only come with 2 band EQ.
the only HU I have ever owned are the Kenwood KDC-MP5032(had great EQ)
and a 2 year old Pioneer DEH model (cant remember model)

also im gonna be setting up 2 Fully loaded 12" BTLs in the trunk running with a Hifonics XXV Goliath(5000rms)
2xStinger SPV70
140 amp alty
5-5.5cf^3 @32

where in michigan are you?'

a pioneer 980 is pretty sweet check that out...

when you buy a radio from sonicelectronics they sent you a wire harness and a dash install kit for free, and free shipping.. check it out

crutchfield will give you the wire harness and the housing for it for free if you order from them. the Alpine 9887 is ****ing awesome, but what exactly do you need?

looks like u have a 1.5 din. They should make dash kits and sell them just about any car audio store

x2, the kit I got from crutchfield free with my HU purchased fit like a glove, made my Pioneer look like it belonged there. Free wiring harness as well (even though I didnt need it). The Alpine is a very good HU as well.

sonicelectronix.com will give you a harness and dash kit if you purchase a headunit and supply vehicle information

crutchfield will do the same, but isnt as cheap as sonicelectronix, although they back their gear very nicely.

they will only give your certain wiring harness's. i have an 06 silverado and if i got a HU through them they wouldnt give me the harness i wanted to retain the chimes because it was around 80$. so they will only give you certain ones
