I had heaps to do on the Jeep but the weather was rubbish and I wasn't in the mood so I stuck my new stereo in today.
I bought a CD/MP3/SD/MMC/USB player from Aldi for $149 last week when they had them on sale. I then got a face plate that fills the gap and converts it to a single din hole from JB-HiFi, it cost $22. So for $172 I had a new stereo.
When I pulled the dash apart I didn't like the way the rear of the stereo wouldn't have any support. I found that a piece of aluminium angle across the back was the perfect height to support the rear of the headunit rather than just the two bolts that are on the face of the adapter.
Anyway heres a couple of pics. In total it took about 2 1/2 hrs.
The dash pulled apart and the aluminium angle siliconed at the back for the rear support
The blanking plate and stereo in, the flap that is lifted up is for the SD/MMC cards and USB Key
The sound is great, I was originally going to replace the speakers but wont bother now.
