UConnect Hands Free Bluetooth - All versions of the RER radios feature UConnect built-in. The non-navigation versions of the MyGIG radio (model REN) do not have UConnect built-in, but will interface with the factory UConnect system, if equipped. UConnect is the exclusive voice-activated, hands-free, in-vehicle communications system. It encourages safe vehicle operation and doesn't compromise driver control. UConnect allows you to dial your wireless phone through simple voice commands. In addition, UConnect mutes your radio before receiving or sending a call, allows you to store up to 32 names and four numbers per name (128 entries) in the system's phonebook, and is flexible enough for an entire family (up to five phones can be linked to the system). UConnect includes Bluetooth technology that enables your wireless phone to connect to your vehicle without wires or a docking station. This leading edge technology will allow you to store your wireless phone anywhere in the vehicle.

The UConnect™ system is fully integrated with the vehicle’s audio system. The radio display will be used for visual prompts from the UConnect™ system such as phone battery status, signal strength, caller ID, and call type. NOTE: Your phone may not support all available UConnect™ features. Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for UConnect™ system operating instructions.

Currently, when you add an RER radio to a compatible vehicle, you will NOT be able to use the UConnect feature until a special jumper harness becomes available (in early May, 2008), even if you have the factory UConnect option to begin with. This is due to the conflict of having two UConnect modules - one in the vehicle, and another in the RER radio. In addition, for those who do NOT have the factory UConnect to start will still need the jumper harness AND will need to buy the factory UConnect mirror (for controls), to get the microphone.

For vehicles that did not come with the UConnect rear view mirror, the Mopar p/n will be 82211649 (MSRP $165.00). Purchase of a rear-view mirror with UConnect is also necessary. For vehicles that came with the factory UConnect mirror, the required adaptor harness will be p/n 82211666 (MSRP $105.00).

Does this help?

"All versions of the RER radios feature UConnect built-in."


Well you would have to buy a REP radio to fit your car from any Dodge Dealer or my be a stolen one listed on E-Bay.

Info from the below site shows

Wrangler and Nitro (2007)
P/N 5064080AD ($1860.00)
superseded by:
P/N 5064080AE ($1860.00)
P/N 5064080AF ($1860.00)
P/N 5064080AG ($1860.00)

Wrangler and Nitro (2008)

P/N 5064400AH ($1860.00)
superseded by:
P/N 5064400AI ($1860.00)

Jeep Grand Cherokee WK - RER Navigation Radios

I would contact a Dealer to see what can be ordered @ what price new with warranty if I was you. Just my .02 cents
