Default Head Unit Swap Question?

I have the REF Single cd with sirrius radio installed in my 07 Ram 1500. If I were to do a head unit swap with another OEM Head Unit. Is it a simple plug and play swap? Would I still have the same satellite esn or would it be different?

You just need a sat radio plug in at the back but if you go stock for stock MOPAR, most units have this. You would use the same sat receiver that's already in your truck.

If you go with a larger DIN head unit, such as I did, you just need a new center bezel.

Thanks for the information. I thought they were separate units, but wasn't sure.

I would like to do the same setup. Do you have any pics of yours. I would love to go to a mygig head unit.

I went with the REC/NAV head unit when I did my swap. With the exception of the button orientation when compared to the MyGig, it would look similar to this:

Before:



1.5 DIN / DD size comparison:



1.5 DIN head unit and small cubby exposed:



Stock opening, ready for new head unit. Notice the number of mounting holes you have to play with:



After:

I get to swap this one out again...I ended up with a bum unit. Damned eBay!!!

I have another REC/NAV in my 300SRT8 which, when I pick the new audio gear for that vehicle, I'll put in the truck.
