    07 Liberty Limited- Radio install, Q

    Hi all, new owner here and loving it
    What aftermarket to OEM adapter should I look for?
    Bought this kit on amazon
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AC7IF7U/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    But have the Amplified system. So have a long plug and a short one on the OEM harness. The one in the kit does not work. (see attached)
    Cant find a valid online that will work with this system. ideas?

    i just went through crutchfield. for like 20 bucks or so they made the adapter harness. switch out the oem radio in 10 mins and everything worked.

    I tried that, and it outputted to https://www.crutchfield.com/p_120706502/Metra-70-6502-Receiver-Wiring-Harness.html?tp=2977&avf=Y
    Same as the harness that came in the kit from amazon "1 x Harmony Audio HA-706502 Chrysler Dodge Jeep Factory Stereo to Aftermarket Radio Harness Adapter".

    So did I do something wrong when wiring it to the aftermarkets harness?
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CG8N0H8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    theres a pic with its harness on the left.
    Colors from 70-6502 matched 100% ( with a bit of shade variation ) to the after market wires

    Figured it out but still stuck
    OEM wiring needs a power line for the AMP's
    Aftermarket harness has no wire to match (only power antenna-blue)
    No does the 70-6502 have a "amp power" line, only the blue antenna power
    So no power to Amp. no sound

    now looking for headunit that has wiring to power an AMP .
    peace all

    figured it out. amazon sucks , Crutchfield rocks. Harness issue fixed.
    Also switched from the Boss headunit to a Kenwood KMM-BT518HD, Yay HD radio, I missed you!
    Noticed right off that the max volume of the Kenwood is 40 (Boss was 33 and worse)and barley tickles the factory speakers, bass is there, barely. So right now max sound volume is like a 20 to 25 on the OEM headunit...Need more volume.
    Had Bought 4 Boss 6.5 Inch 300 Watt 3-Way's weeks ago and now and waiting on crutchfield to deliver Speaker brackets for the install session. But even with the front door factory AMPs still feeding the speakers, I fear that the sound quality will worsen with the better speakers
    TO my Question
    I have a OLD Mono Soundforce 850watt AMP, Any way I can wire that up to maybe the rear doors?
    Right now its attached to the box with 850 watt sub (prev Ride was a pickup)
