Default Factory radio touch screen

I have just the regular cd player in my truck with alpine system, and was wondering if any one has gone to a factory touch screen non nav or swapped in a aftermarket radio, are there any problems with keeping you steering wheel controls or alpine system working?

Im guessing with the factory swap everything would work fine, but what about going with a aftermarket touch screen? What aftermarket radios would be a good choice?
Sorry for the dumb question lol just new to the whole ram scene.

ps anyone got a factory one for sale hit me up!!

When I bought my truck it had the same radio as you with the alpine sound system.. I upgraded to the touch screen non nav. All the steering wheel controls continue to work. That was my concern too when I upgraded.

I have the RBZ head unit with Uconnect and love it. I'm quite happy with the sound produced by it and the sub/speaker package.

you can retain all your steering wheel controls with an after market touch screen system. Generally it is a plug and play add on harness when you install them. PAC i believe is a manufacturer of these harnesses. Go aftermarket system. Way more options and better touch screen. Check out Pioneer and Kenwood. Those were my favs

yeah but double din is the way to go and there is no double din that can fit a dodge ram without moding the dash.

You can get the DD bezel for your dash and upgrade to the MyGig head unit. It's pretty much plug and play.

You can get the DD bezel for your dash and upgrade to an aftermarket DD head unit. When you go aftermarket head units, and/or upgrade to an aftermarket amp, one or more of the following adapter harnesses from PacAudio:

C2ACHY: Aftermarket amp interface for CAN BUS vehicles.

C2RCHY4: Aftermarket head unit with NAV outputs.

C2R-CHYNA: Radio replacement interface for non-amplified Chrysler vehicles.

SWI-JACK: Steering wheel control interface for JVC, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, OEM, Valor and Blaupunkt radios

SWI-CAN: CANBUS steering wheel control add-on interface for Chrysler vehicles.

The DD bezel is a dealer part. There are several online MOPAR authorized parts dealers. They are Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealers.
