Upgrades Lift and Stereo

My last lift thread, promise! For those interested, I wanted to show the results of my lift kit. I also swapped out that POS factory stereo for a JVC KDX310BT. Bluetooth, Pandora, even a little remote all for $79.00. Much better than the ZX-25 that never worked from day one.

Nice unit. I am sure you can get to some wonderful off the path places. Enjoy.

Nice job on both mods, could you post up or send me the details on the stereo swap.
My factory unit does not work and needs replacing, this looks like a professional install and I would like to duplicate it.

Yes that is a nice job. It has been decades since I worked on a auto stereo. How did the wiring work on the stereo? How did you maintain the outside speaker?

I also change out the radio in our unit. The unit came with a Kenwood KDC-152, The main reason I changed it was it would not pick up AM station very well.
The new radio a JVC KD-x250 BT has Bluetooth. I could take bluetooth head phone out of the trailer and not bother my neighbors. It also has a USB input that can be used for charging or input. The big knock would be the control are not very intuitive.
Now the part I could not believe is the hole and the wiring connector fit with the new radio, that's a first.

The radio swap was strait up, just follow the supplied wiring diagram. Lots of youtube stuff on that.
