So here's the link to the listing. Seller has multiple available and claims to program to VIN. I've read through literally every forum post available regarding the topic and have been scouring all of the options available. This appears to be the best price. Just wanted to know if anyone else had bought from them and could share their experience or knowledge on the topic.

I have a 2021 model so the part # I use is 68472597AM.

That is a weird seller. Selling radios and jewelry. Feedback looks decent for the radio sold listings. I would just make sure any payment method falls under the Ebay Buyer Protection policy.

As to programing to VIN, that really is misnomer as you should get a security code unique to the radio and after installing it and doing a cold power off reboot, the radio will configure to your vehicle sales code settings as it talks to the rest of the vehicle modules.

pay with paypal and don't worry about it not working. If it doesn't work, you're covered.

Unless I missed it, nowhere does the listing actually say it's 8.4" or supply an oem part number. It just says it's an upgrade radio. The 7" is considered an upgrade over the base radio, and does not have nav. Just sayin'...

The UAS radio is out of a RAM and did not include onboard NAV. It relies on Android Auto or Carplay for NAV functions.

So will the UAS radio work with our back up cameras?
I remember in my last Gladiator, when I was changing from a 5" radio to the 8.4 I had to get a certain part number 8.4 for the gladiator because some of the JL radios wouldn't work with our backup cameras...

Update - I placed an order for it after speaking with the seller. Seller confirmed that off-road pages and backup camera will work and everything will be plug and play. After ordering a bezel separately from nismopar, the total cost after tax is $920. I'll report back with an update after install and testing as this has been the most cost effective option on the market.
