Ordered the Alpine audio without the premium audio group.

Not smart. I cheap-ed out $800 on a $43k purchase.

Dumb move. Oh well...

Thanks for listening 😆


I thought I saw a how to on adding USB power to the console but can't find it. A link would be appreciated if you know where it is!

Eh. $800 is $800. We did the same thing with our JKU and I don't regret it at all. Spent $400 on a decent head unit with Nav and it has been great. Factory 8.4 unit is obviously nice but Is it really $800 better than the 7" unit? I know it all depends on perspective but in any event $800 is not an insignifant sum.

Did you get the Aux switch group? If so no biggie on adding a USB power ports in console, one of the wires is a switched on power just extend it and add it yourself. A USB outlet from Amazon is around $10 or so then you can have 2 outlets inside or outside of the console.

Yes I did get the aux switches. I just saw a video where a guy added a USB box in the glove box using the aux switches . Not hard to route to the console.

That should make it more livable! Thanks!

It should come with usb inside the console regardless of the package. You could come off of that if you need more ports on the back side if the console

Too late... already ordered the Alpine system. I just realized I didn't call that out. Oh well. Not the end of the world.

Thanks for the other links!
