if the deck looks the same the plugs should be too, pretty sure the radios go off of a standard chrysler plug set, so you could even check other chrysler vehicles around the same year

my 99 had the same stock radio as a sebring....and from the radio installs ive done both on a cherokee and grand, they look the same so id just go for a chrysler vehicle around the same year, with a matching or pretty similar radio, my bet would be that it would hook in

Any '80's- '90's Chrysler radio/tape/cd player should work.

I broke down and bought the cheapo Wal-Mart CD player with USB port on the front. $50 and new Vs. the $35 for a used factory unit from the JY. Wiring harness for Jeep was $7 @ Wally World too. Install time = 5 minutes (in the WW parking lot). Having tunes that plug right into my I-Pod = Priceless. Now I gott figure out why only the right side speakers work...

There is an AUX input on the faceplate where you plug in the I-pod, the USB port is used to charge the I-pod (or cell phone or any other device that has a USB charger cable, like my Nintendo DS). The USB Port is also on the faceplate, but it is used to charge devices. :-)
Not bad for $50 new, even reads MP3 disks and has a pre-amp output.
