For those of you interested here are some pics, parts and prices for a complete radio replacement with a nexus 7 tablet.

I first installed a fold out radio and hooked by phone up via MHL - RCA converter. Worked ok but was a pain in the *** to have my phone hooked up all the time. So i decided to take radio back and do a nexus 7 install

I bought the 2nd Gen Nexus first but after having a 2 week head ache getting it to work right i just bought a 1st Gen for the Car. Also had a 12v to 5v Step Down micro Usb cable for power but that didnt work so i said F it and did the hacky USB adapter method

Also had some glue and velcro straps lying around so you wont see a part list or cost for that. I basically cut some and glued them to the dash kit. RCA volume control and USB Stick is mounted inside the little storage by the shifter. I got a small amp from my friend so didnt have to buy that either

My original plan was to Cut the stock bezel to fit the nexus but i can't cut **** straight so decided to spend some cash on new bezel

Looks great! What HUD are you using? Or is that just built into the jeep?
