Yes, you can change it out to a better Chrysler radio and depending on if you are talking the RHB (which would be a PnP set up) or the 730N, you would need a mic kit for it because the Uconnect for the REQ, RES, RBZ & RHB radios are separate modules and the mic is wire to the module. On the 730N radio, Uconnect is built into the radio, so the mic needs to be wired to the radio.
You will want to make sure that the radio you buy is a high speed CAN BUS radio also.

I will try to explain it the best that i know how
The radios from Chrysler for your Ram are 1.5 or 1.7 DIN, it is an odd size
the SALES CODE can be found on the bottom, right lower face of the Radio, 3 letters

RHR 730N has navigation
RHB 430N has Navigation
non Nav radios are these may or may not come with all the modules needed for uconnect, ipods, microphone, etc
RBZ 430
REN 430
RES 130
This can be found at this website

The eBay seller in Florida i believe is an EXPORTER, he pulls the Made for North American radios out of the vehicles & installs MADE for European Radios in the vehicles going overseas... There is also a guy that does this same thing in New Jersey, he also sells on eBay
This is the Florida sellers regular site

These are 2 of the places to find the things that MAY be needed for a complete install of any radio that you decide to go with, either stock or after market

I hope this helps somewhat
Good Luck
