A client from San Jose was referred by a friend to contact us about adding a new radio and backup camera to his 2015 Jeep Wrangler. He needed a technology upgrade in the dashboard, so we took some time to walk him through several options available for his off-road–capable ride.
We showed him the Alpine X409-WRA-JK Restyle head unit that offers a robust set of features in a new radio bezel designed specifically for 2011–2018 Jeep JK Wranglers. The built-in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto means easy phone integration, the included FunTreks mapping software allows full use of trail maps and the iGo Navigations gets you to your destination when back on the road. A weather-resistant design makes it possible to leave the top and doors off the Jeep, and an included iDatalink Maestro module allows full use and control of factory controls and vehicle performance data. Paired with the Alpine HCE-TCAM1-WRA, it provides a full view of the area behind the Jeep, and the camera is well-protected in the center of the rear spare tire.
