Kenwood DNX692.  The molding around the radio and climate controls is also not stock.  Their installer is a bit OCD and he didn't like how the dash was textured, but the area around the radio wasn't :lol:  So they threw in that "upgrade" free.  It's not quite the same color, but the texture is damn close.  It also resists dirt better than the original surface, and it fills in the cracks better, so I don't have to try to get down in there with a qtip.

Always a good thing to have a tech that isn't in a rush and does a clean install.

Looks practically OEM.

What did you have to do to get the "Jeep" splash screen on start up?

I just scored one of these bad boys for $100. Like yours except without Bluetooth. Bought it used, didn't come with a manual.

I had it installed, so it's whatever they did.

Hmm. Guess I'll have to find a PDF of the manual.

Yeah :(

I'm enjoying the truck a lot, it's definitely a more useful and comfortable vehicle overall, but I do miss the Jeep.

I especially miss it when parking in tight spots.

Edited for fan clutch mod.

Found out today that the electric fan is locked up.  So the original fan clutch went bad, the electric locked...no wonder I was having heating issues.  Probably explains why I blew the new AC compressor too.  So going to replace the electric fan soon.  I'll see if there's not a better electric fan on the market.

Spal. That's the electric fan of my choice. Quite a few choices on sizes and cfm. Unfortunately I don't think they're gonna have a direct fit replacement.

Ok, so electric fan replaced, as was the AC compressor, dryer, and orifice tube.  Thanks fan, for going out!  Also just replaced the front washer pump...thankfully I had drained most of the fluid down on the back window.

Also, ordered a MicroSD card for my radio.  Don't have to worry about plugging in my iphone for my music now.
