Canbus?

I just talked to a stereo installation place and they said Jeep has a canbus (can-bus, CAN-BUS, sp?) interface which makes simple swapping of the stereo in the backyard not possible unless I get additional wiring to interface with the CAN-BUS too. Is this true or is that a load of ****e? I'm looking at replacing the base OEM stereo with an Alpine IDA-X001 deck and want to make sure I'm getting a good deal.

Re: Canbus?

Yes and no. Yes you can do a simple backyard stereo install. However, you won't have the channel info on your display if you currently do, and the steering wheel controls would not work if you have them. Not without the proper wiring harnesses.

I have the base stereo without the BA speakers.

I called Crutchfield and they said I did not need the CANBUS interface.
