Ok...who has installed this in their JK? I have a 2010 Sahara with no uconnect, stock RES.

Is there anyone who did this install who could help me out? I'm about to buy the unit and the Sirius adapter. What other parts will I need? I'm think about a backup camera as well.

Are there any good sites to walk through the install? Any extra cables
Thanks!

I use Crutchfield.com, if you buy the unit from them the Customer Support is outstanding, they will help you through any problems that arise. They also have a whole bunch of research on their website that you can look through.

Hey man. I dont have your specific head unit but I did put a Pioneer AVH8450BT (Double DIN headunit with Sirius, DVD, backup camera, etc)
I would highly recommend buying from a place like Crutchfield. They will give you all the adapters and "frame insert" for free and a very good installation guide (and customer phone support which is pretty decent). When I installed my Pioneer, there was a weird glitch where it required an inline resistor for it to work in a Wrangler. Pioneer couldnt even tell me what was wrong but Crutchfield managed to figure it out for me. Just my 2 cents/experience. I also added a backup camera to the system. In my opinion you can get a decent camera on Amazon for dirt cheap (like $20 or $30) that will work fine with your Pioneer. The Pioneer brand camera as I recall, was like $200. As for mounting, I tied the hot line for the camera into my passenger side back up light. Run the wires through the normal wire panel for your tailgate. I then mounted 2" square alumin stock to the top of the spare tire mount housind and it put the camera at just the right height to peek through the spare tire spokes. I will try to get you pics tonight

I'll go ahead and echo the Crutchfield sentiments. Top notch customer service. They're pricing works out really well too when you buy everything from them (they'll throw in most if not all of the harness for free, free dash kit, etc). They'll also be sure you order everything you need to make it work.
