Default siriusXM Radio

First if there is a thread on this already i have not found it yet my apologizes . Ok I have two 2019 Cherokee Latitude's one with SiriusXM and one with out. I was sure that the white one ( one with out sat radio) had it but no it does have the cold weather package. the black one hers (wife's one has sat radio). I contacted the dealer and was told that if it did not come from the factory it cannot be installed. I say bull.... so after searching the internet and emailing a few different companies. i have a part number for the antenna base. the part number is 68281165AA . what my question is does anyone know if there is anything else needed, or do i need a siriusxm receiver or will i need to swap out the uconnect4 7 inch UAG screen with one that has the sat receiver in it. i haven't pulled mine yet to see it it has the sat plug on the back kinda afraid to its only a few weeks old lol. but i do miss my sat radio. for now i bluetooth it to the radio from phone. Thanks Mark

Do you have the window sticker?
It should say if you have SiriusXM.
It was standard on my 2017 Trailhawk.
But then, my 2012 Ford escape has a
Sirius button but no "sat radio", go figure.
I called Ford and they told me to just go aftermarket.
Don't bother calling Sirrius to ask, their tech people
are in India and they know less then the Dealers
about "sat radio"!!!

you could do what i do in the old vehicles, use a sirius receiver and the car adapter. it won't cost you more than 100 bux tops for everything you need.

Thanks Guys for all the input. I called FCA and was told the same thing if it did not come built with the vehicle then there is no option for it. I am at a Jeep Dealer now getting recall done on our Black Chreokee and talked to the parts guy nice guy extremely helpful and friendly... anyways due to the fact that from what he found there is not even a part number for the 7 Inch screen in the system, and it said the same thing if no sat radio option no option to replace unit or add. There is no reason as to why, but he was guessing due to the fact that the wiring harness may be different as the only size screen showing for the 2019 Cherokee's is the 7 inch. I can get a free siriusxm receiver and just add to my account already, or just keep streaming from phone which i will end up keep doing for now. Thanks again everyone for all your input and help.

I did look on the window sticker and there is no option it was a over sight on my part.....

ok so heres an update to what i have found. I did finally find the correct part number for the factory uconnect4 7 inch touch screen with built in xm receiver the antenna base and wiring harness that i need for KL to have sat radio. I have had the add on receiver from sirisus and i'm not to keen on them, they do work good don't get me wrong i just prefer the factory setup. here are the part numbers you will need for a KL W/O Sat radio with cold weather package
Antenna Base: MOPAR 68320426AA
Antenna Cable: MOPAR 68249943AA
Uconnect4 7 inch Touch Screen Infotainment System: MOPAR 68297445AG

if you take some time to search the internet you will find great prices.

thanks everyone for your input.
