Default Need to replace radio

On my 1998 XJ sport the radio and cassette player (which I was wonderfully using with a cassette - jack kit from Five Below) died.

Is it possible to find a replacement radio?
Or I need to buy an adapter and install a standard car radio?

In case I need to go the second route, I have done some reading and I kinda understood I need to buy also an adapter harness. Is this all I need: http://www.hifisoundconnection.com/J...FVI9gQodV_8NSA ?

Can you suggest some other place where to buy a conversion kut?

Thanks

I used the Metra 99-6000 Single DIN Installation Kit. If you are thinking about an aftermarket head the Pioneer DEH-80PRS ($250.00 on Amazon) is a good bang for your buck.

Thanks, looks like the Metra 99-6000 Single DIN Installation Kit is the way to go.
In this case, do I need an adapter harness or the connectors on the Jeep already fit a standard car stereo unit?

If I need adapter, do you have a reference?

Thanks

I would just upgrade head units to be honest. You gain bluetooth, a 13 band EQ, and a slightly more powerful amplifier, can do it for around $100, less if you buy a cheap head unit (though might as well get something halfway decent)

These speakers for $25 (needs adapters)
