    Plug and play. What type radio are you looking for?

    I have the one I pulled from my '07 just sitting here doing nothing. I'd have to check to be sure, but I think it will fit an '05.

    See if you can verify that and I can let you have it cheap. (Very cheap.) ;)

    I got off to a late start today, then football intervened. I have the pictures but it will be a few hours before I get a chance to post them.

    My build sheet listed the radio as an RBK model, which I have now verified. Pictures coming soon - have to run out to the store. (My wife's idea...I hate going anywhere near any retail establishment the weekend after Thanksgiving) :eek:

    A little background info - My Jeep's build sheet says it came off the assembly line in Toledo in October 2006. I bought it in May of 2013 and replaced the radio in May of 2015. During the two years I used the radio it ran flawlessly. Since then it has been in a weatherproof tub in my garage. It has the built in controls for the five-disc changer you can mount in the cargo area but my Jeep never had that. (I looked.) The slot-loading CD worked fine, though I did not use it all that much. (I am leery of carrying around hundreds of dollars worth of CDs at once and I never got in the habit of shuttling them in and out from the house.) This model does have bass and treble controls but I can't remember which button you push to adjust them. :oops:

    Here you go:

    Here is an offer for you. I'll ship it to you and I'll pay the postage. When you get it, pay $30-40 to the (non-political) charity of your choice. I am partial to cancer charities because my wife has had it twice and I lost my mom to cancer as well, but if you want to pick your own that is OK with me. If you have a problem with the radio (no reason you should, it worked fine when I took it out) it is up to you whether you want to make the donation or not. This lets me off the hook if there is a problem because you'd have to return it and the only winner would be the Post Office. I am a computer nut as well and have done things like this for old computer parts I have replaced and sold off.

    If you think it's not worth that, make a counter-offer. I really have no idea what eBay or whoever is selling these for these days.

    I also have the original bezel because I went to a double-DIN unit and had to replace that. We can talk price for that, too, if you need it for some reason. The shipping there might be an issue because of its odd size.

    One final thing is that I am leaving to go deer hunting for the next few days and it will likely be at least a week before I can get it shipped.

    That's a very magnanimous offer. I accept. My Mom had this awful disease and I lost two children also. More than happy to see to that. Don't worry about time constraints, I'm in no rush. Have a great trip. Thank you

    Not sure if we put addresses or phone numbers on the site. Let me know when you get back from your trip.

    You can send it to me in a Private Message (I think the new forum software calls it something else). I wouldn't post it publicly. I'll ping you when I get back and we can work it out. :)

    I got back from my trip, minus a leg. I have PM'd you for your address. I am waiting to get scheduled for an MRI but I hope to get this shipped out in the next day or so. :)
