yes, there are 2 components to the system, there is the radio and then there is the Uconnect module which should be mounted to the dash structure to the far right of the glove box opening. Drop the glove box down, look inside the opening to the far right and you should see a module like the one pictured below.
You just have to have some patience and look online for the radio. But as I mentioned, you may also want to look at aftermarket radios like pioneer, alpine, kenwood etc, there's a lot of them that have built in BT and ipod adapters.

your truck is a 2009, correct? Chrysler Uconnect did not start supporting Bluetooth streaming audio until 2011 because the radio did not have the SW to support it. Now you have a couple of choices of how to proceed from here:
1) You find a 2011 Chrysler radio, UC module and replace the parts. There is a guy on another forum that just upgrade his 2012 RES to a NAV radio. He's asking $150 for the radio. His upgrade was to a different radio (RHR, I think it was) but he's not using the UC module either. You may be able to get a deal on both parts.
Oh, there is of course a 3rd option, Buy a new truck. (just kidding)
Like I said though, Sorry that I just caught this about your vehicle
Not a problem, just glad that it's over with and actually you solved the problem without me going back to the dealership and wasting more time. Now another question. Are there two different parts to this set-up? Sounds like by your response there is one module for UC and one for the radio, is that correct? If it is, I'm guessing that both would have to be replaced for what I want to do. If I'm going to do that, I just might want to get a touch screen radio. Any suggestions where to look around at? Ebay? Amazon? Is there a link on this site for used equipment? Maybe I'm not seeing the store link or something. Your right though, a new truck would solve the problem. Donations will be accepted! (HA HA) Thanks again for all your help! Hopefully the next time I need answers for a problem you'll run across it.
