    It’s the
    alpine i207-wra

    I got the beta version. You can sign up for it I believe, I have had beta access for many years. They recently opened it to the public to sign up.

    Radio is great though and love the one connection for engine info and tire pressure. You can also use it as a switch panel for accessories.

    I opted for a Pioneer AVH-w4500NEX. It retains DVD/CD player, has a removable face, and supports Carplay (wired and wireless)/Android Auto (Wired and Wireless)/Bluetooth/ODB Stats. I installed one in my wife's RAV4 this week and it is pretty awesome. I will be installing one in my JKU the beginning of September, I am not sure if I will install one in Vengeance.

    It’s super easy to install but if you have any questions shoot me a text. I’ll message my number. There is a couple things I wish I did.

    Replace the front cig lighter power with a usb pass through.

    Edit, after GOOBS of research, I opted for the ilx207-WRA as it comes with a metal support plate and robust side plates. Other non-specific wrangler application like the w4500NEX will cost you the top screw on your dash and likely will make your dash flex like mad around the radio (that is what I have read) so while I am happy with the w4500NEX in my wifes RAV4, it will not be going into my 2017 JKU. Installing tomorrow night if it shows up on time.

    I just bought the rear WRA bracket separate and now have the exacted same setup up as the WRA but saved about $250 spending 30 minutes connecting all the wires myself.

    Hmmm, not sure how you saved $250, since I only never said what I paid (and I didn't pay retail). If you bought the bracket separately, you would have had to buy the Maestro separately, and the metra kit (and I( think that is plastic) which from a retail POV adds nearly $200 to the price of an ILX-107. For me to have everything on one box was nice, and I got a pretty good deal on it. I do not love the Apline compared to the Pioneer (especially since wireless carplay is pretty awesome), but the rigidity in the dash is worth it, since I built it to wheel and I don't want the dash going all flexy on me.

    You are right, I did not compare to your undisclosed amount you paid. I based it off the ILX-207-WRA 999.99 price. I pieced it all together on amazon saving me $250. I agree with you that the all in one WRA package is nice but to others looking to save a buck there are ways around it.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
