    Awwww come on Al! I really really really want to say the "F word" . . . PLEASE!?!

    I was listening to a talk show a while back, and I semi-recall them eluding to the fact that they cant even say the phrase "F word"

    :Shrug:

    i wonder about this as an alternative. looks like it would be nice, and has the xm built right into the unit. seems more cost efective than buying 2 things as well..
    hmm?
    i'll have to look into this head unit.

    That's cool, that's the first time I have seen a deck where it actually has the XM reciever already built in, that would eliminate the hassle of trying to find a spot for the reciever and running all the extra wires. If they had that when I got XM that is the route I would have went.

    I have an Alpine Mp3/CD head unit with an Alpine XM receiver. I've had it for close to a year and have listened to about 3 CDs since I got mine. I would not trade it for anything!

    Mounting the anteanna was a bit of a trick on my TJ as I would lose reception in areas with thick tree coverage or in metro areas with tall buildings. I eventually found a "sweet spot" for the antenna and haven't had any problems since. I mounted it on the hood hinge on the drivers side. I then ran the wires thru firewall next to the hard top wiring harness. Since I mounted the receiver under the drivers seat, I just follow the wall under the lip of the door and pop the wires out next to the roll cage pole and under the seat. It's well hidden and sounds great!

    Hope that helps.

    XM Commander. I wanted to get the kind that I could take out and share but was told I couldn't do that without a tape player, not sure why.

    Whose B-Day?

    Well my cd/mp3 player is xm radio capable, but i don't have it installed. I just don't drive my jeep enough to justify the purchase of xm radio.

    As far as upgrading to a aftermarket player goes....I got a detachable face one at Fry's with the same kind of deal mentioned. It cost me about $250 out the door with free installation. I had it installed where the stock radio goes. I simply lock the face up in my tuffy center console.

    Dust.....i went the cheap route. I went to Walmart and bought the cheapest/thinest/see-through shower curtain i could find ($3), and a roll of velcro (kind that has the glue on both sides already) ($4). I measured out the cd face of my unit and cut the shower curtain out to size with enough excess for the velcro to run all the way around the corners. I then put the velcro on it, and the other side of velcro all the way around the slot where the cd player is.

    It's see through, comes off in a second and even my stupid remote works with it on and dust doesn't get in. I have enough leftover material to make a new one.....hmmm.....around 50 more times i'd guess so i'm not worried if i lose it or it wears out i'll simply make a new one.

    I've had zero issues with my cd/mp3 player this way and i'm always on dusty trails. Once in a blue moon i'll shoot some Dust Off on the unit and face, but it rarely needed it.

    If you end up getting one i'd recommend a unit that has the detachable face that completely covers up the cd insertion slot. With my unit i have to flip down the detachable face to insert a cd that offers a bit more protection from dust then a standard one where the cd insertion slot if always in the elements.
