I just ordered the Nitro amp for my Infinity system, and also just purchased a used Mygig here on the forum. I am wondering if I install the Nitro amp before the required Mygig reflash, will the Nitro amp performance be affected by the reflash? Thanks.

What's with people swapping out the amp for a nitro one? Is the nitro amp dirt cheap and that much better?

Chrysler cripples the amp in the JKs to prevent rattles and so on
the Nitro uses the same amp, only uncrippled so the swap nets more power

My understanding is the the dealer needs to reflash it to your specific vehicle. I may not need it however since mine came out of a JK. Any advice on this would be helpful. Thanks.
Sorry I missed this until just now. As far as I know, you do not need to have your Jeep flashed when installing a MyGig. If they'll do it for free, go for it, but I and many others have simply pulled our single or six disc head units and plugged in the MyGig and it's good to go.

Oh and mine came out of a T&C or Ram if I recall correctly. As long as you purchased a highspeed can bus version it'll work. If someone purchased a low speed one, no amount of flashing in the world will make it work. Yours came out of a JK so you should be all set.

And don't you dare consider paying the dealer to install it either. lol It's 8 7mm hex bolts and a couple plugs. Although since you're here, I doubt you would, but for anyone else reading this and considering a swap it's very simple.

Thanks a bunch. I am almost finished installing my alarm, and I will drop the Mygig in this week.

No worries on the dealer install. I have installed no less than 30 custom systems in my cars and friends and family cars over the years.

Thanks again!!

Actually the Infinity speakers sound OK, but just OK. I will see how the amp helps out, and go from there. Thanks.

I found the Nitro amp definitely made a difference in bringing up the soundbar speakers. Unfortunately, to my ears they sounded pretty bad at higher volumes after the swap, so I quickly replaced them with better infinity speakers I got from Crutchfield that just happened to be on sale.

Now with better Infinity's up there and the nitro amp I'm pretty happy with them, but find the sub to be the weak link.

Yep. I have been down that path a few times before.
