this has probly been beaten up pretty good. i want a dbl din like every other one on this site in my truck. my question is. is there any modifications that are required on the outside piece of the dash (the part you see). i know the the sub dash needs work. thanks
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
