    I paired mine to another iPhone tonight.

    Powered it on, it made the startup sound and you can see a small blue led illuminated inside the speaker.

    Pushed the Bluetooth labeled button next to the power button until it made the audible. Paired to the Jeep Speaker Icon immediately.

    The Bluetooth button doesn’t look like a button. It is a raised square with a Bluetooth emblem.

    I wish you guys luck.

    I picked up my Alpine BT speaker at dealer today and it doesn't quite fit in the storage area. I saw your pic with cover removed and now remember the dealer asking if I needed the charging cradle and tray and I said "no". The correct answer was yes because its apparent now that you have to remove the two screw covers, replace the entire plastic tray and then plug in power harness and insert new tray equipped with charging ports. I would love to see a picture of a factory equipped BT tray without speaker.

    Same here. We may be able to find a speaker for it (I think it is a Bose) but we would need to purchase the charging cradle. Not sure MOPAR has it out yet as a replacement part.

    You are correct in that it is not available and is currently back-ordered while the "part is being sourced with manufacturer" so whoever makes the cradle for Jeep hasn't made them available.

    Also, the charging cradle is $450 range and I think I got it for 15% off. The Alpine Jeep bluetooth speaker was $350 range and I got it for $290's with coupon from Mopar. I will have nearly $750 in this setup and its a $295 option from Jeep.

    That is crazy! MOPAR will have to make this cheaper in the future.

    I figured if the system is Alpine they’re not going to throw in a crappy speaker. I ordered it in the Overland that’s in transit.

    FCA will put in the cheapest speaker they think they can get away with.

    The Alpine Bluetooth speaker rocks compared to the Marshall I have (which is pretty loud)
    We just got a new Jeep speaker on warranty as the one that came with truck wouldn’t pair.
