    Hello all looking a doing a bit of a upgrade for my daughters 05 Liberty, any thoughts on radios that fit good. Really the only big feature is bluetooth.

    Thanks for any feedback!

    Welcome to the forum. I moved this to the Electronic section.
    I went with a Pioneer single DIN head unit with remote. 6 years later it still works well.
    Has powerful headunit, bluetooth, USB input, microphone, Sat Radio etc etc. See my thread: https://www.jeepkj.com/threads/recommendations-for-upgrading-my-stereo-kj.55995/

    The pioneer with super tuner 3 radio offers overall good reception & a power built in amp with great features.

    I put in a full size (double DIN) touchscreen sony and added a back up camera. There was a cheap facing that I bought for the install. It looks great and sounds great.

    For me, one key, even though this was for my daughter, is the radio needs a dial volume control versus buttons. I like to be able to twist the volume.

    I can get a pic later if your interested in seeing what a double looks like in a liberty.

    I bought a Nulaxy NX09 FM Transmitter on ebay for $16, just plug in cigarette lighter and you can paired up your phone via bluetooth and play your favorite music that you love. No fancy radio installation, your smart phone probably have everything you need.

    I picked up one of those for another car and it works surprisingly well.
