Aftermarket Radio?

I have the navigation system in my Commandor. But I would like to remove it and put in my Kenwood 8017 head unit which has a DVD player and Nav. I have a few questions though.
1) Will my u-connect work with the kenwood unit?
2) Where can I get another dash cover because the stock nav system is much bigger than the kenwood?
3) Where can I get a Kenwood-Jeep harness?

1.) Doubtful. U-Connect is a DCX product and I doubt they have included too much interoperability with non DCX audio components.

2.) You will need to order the smaller bezel (that goes on non-navigation equipped XKs) and then get this: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-6GrMZhS...p?i=142CR1286B

Re: Aftermarket Radio?

Does anyone know how to remove the dash on the Commander? Are there any screws or is just a bunch of clips? Any tricks to get it off

Re: Aftermarket Radio?

You know I think I read around here somewhere that you must remove all of the stainless allen bolts staring you in the face.

Re: Aftermarket Radio?

As above, all of the allen heads in the dash are real, functional screws. After you pull them the bezel around the radio can be snapped out. -What are you doing with the factory nav system?-
