AM FM radio conversion. WHo has done tthis???
#1
So I need a radio. I have the factory radio its an am. Nothing fits like the factory radio. I have been researching this and there are a few options out there. The better tuner seems to be made by aurora. The dealers all seem to get about $400 for the conversion. Blue tooth adds more cash. The conversion on mine with blue tooth and a charger and USB port is about $600 and change. What do you guy think? None of the aftermarket look like the factory...

Agree that nothing offered looks correct. Close but not close enough for me. Check out this recent related thread for options:

they are not identical, very true. but they have 300w and bolt in real easily. unlike the radio shack 8 track and sanyo amp i wired to the Jensen 6x9's when i was 17!
