JL Audio HD900/5 Amplifier
Morel Hybrid 6.5s in the front and soundbar using the 6.5 inch adaptors (metra JP1014 and SSV Works JJT-SA065)

Sounds incredible and wireless carplay is as amazing as it sounds.

That looks great. Which dash kit did you use for the install? Also, were you able to use the factory backup camera with the Pioneer?

I used the metra dash kit. Unfortunately was not able to use the factory backup cam though.

Does anyone have a solution yet to retaining the functionality of the factory backup camera?

What kind of wiring kit did you use? Are you having any issues or missing features besides the backup camera? Also, where you able to keep steering wheel controls?

I had an older version of the Pioneer you chose in my JKU. It was a good unit. I made the mistake of paying extra for the Alpine system in my JLU just to get the 8.4” screen and ripping the rest out. If I were Doing it again, I would have ordered the smaller screen and base system a took a hard look at the Stinger Heigh10 because it fully integrates all functions including HD cams, notifications, climate control, data feeds etc but with a 10” screen. About the same price as the Alpine junk I took out.

Ok, I got everything to work. I even got the backup cam to work with an aftermarket device. Problem is the wires are to bulky to get it to fit. I will need to shorten the wires and get rid of unnecessary cables. Very tight area to work with.

It's interesting that roughly a month later Crutchfield says only 3 radios work with any type of 2018+ JL Wranglers and none of the 3 are the W4660NEX (or the almost exactly same sized Alpine W650). Did you have to manually select each part?

I'm glad you were able to get it working though. I'm considering buying a 2020 Wrangler Sport and will save myself some money by transferring my W4660 from my Cruze.

I definitely appreciate it. Especially since I found a Jeep dealer where I live with some good lease deals and is not picky about some customer modifications like the head unit (as long as it is done carefully of course).
