    Found board reader last night, but it doesn't actually archive complete posts and that page is for the original thread by getupkid.
    Indaram's thread while similar was called...

    DIY - OEM 5.0 Radio to 8.4 Radio Upgrade


    Tried archive.org, Google, and Oracle's cached pages. No dice for Indaram's OP.

    Unless someone has specific info or links to share, it's gone.

    UPDATE:
    Got my 2016 Chrysler 200 RA4 exchanged for a 2014 RAM RA4 and received it today.

    I have a 3 day weekend coming up. Anyone in the Evansville Indiana area got a garage I can use this weekend to attempt the conversion with limited info we have since? It's going to be quite cold.

    Unfortunately an attempt at thread maintenance, with the best of intentions, was made to consolidate/move the relevant posts into Indaram's thread and resulted in the loss of both sets of info.

    This is now the primary thread and the original ha been locked (posts are missing from it now).

    Finally got a compatible Ra4 Radio (2014 p/n: 68224525AH ) for my upgrade.

    Threw it in as is with the original bezel for now (It's not scratched, just left the plastic on the screen)...

    Thanks to Austin at NavRepair fire working with me to identify the 2016 Chrysler 200c RA4 as the issue with my truck and helping me get a 2014 RA4 for RAM.

    Would it have worked with a 2014-15 Chrysler 8.4 you think? Congrats btw! It's an upgrade that's well worth it!

    Doubt it. Probably out of a Cherokee...
    12-30-15 EDIT (Via Email):

    Edit: Chrysler VIN Body code info

    For brand new codes, a pattern seems to be emerging for the second digit, with “F” representing a Fiat adaptation of a Chrysler code (or a Chrysler version of a Fiat), and “6” or “A” being a Maserati adaptation. Maybe.

    Numbers: Hyundais (Mexico), 10=Verna/Attitude, 16=H100, 21=Atos/i10, 52=1000 van, 55=Trazo; Lancias, 22=Delta, 23=Ypsilon; 92=???

    L-cars: LX = 300/300C. LD = Charger. LC = First Challenger. LA = Future Challenger, L2=Chinese 300C, LF=?.

    K-cars: KJ/KK=Liberty, KL = Cherokee. K2 = non-Toledo Cherokee, K1 = non-Toledo Liberty

    JK = Jeep Wrangler, J3 = Wrangler knockdown kit (Egypt production), JL = Future Wrangler

    JS = 200/Avenger; JT = formerly planned 200/Avenger replacement?

    U-cars: U1 (new/export), U2 (new/export), UA (Fiat small car), UC (Chrysler midsize/JNAP), UF (Chrysler/Lancia midsize, SHAP — 200 replacement), UG (?), UJ (Jeep midsize), UK (?), UL (old code for KL), UM (?), UT (Dodge Avenger replacement, possibly dead)

    JC = Journey, JD = Future Journey, J5 = Journey export, JF = Fiat Freemont, JG = ?, JZ = cancelled Chrysler Journey

    WK = Grand Cherokee, W6 = Levante, WD= Durango, WL (2017+ G.C.), WS (Wagoneer? 2016+)

    FF = Fiat 500, PF = Dodge Dart

    VF = Van-Fiat: Ram ProMaster, PW = full size van?, VR (Daily?), VT (Doblo?)

    RM = Unknown, new for 2014; ZD, 2013+ Viper

    M = non-Belvedere Patriot, MA= Alfa Cherokee, MM = Toledo version of Jeep compact crossover(?)

    P3 = non-Belvedere Compass, PJ = future Compass, PK = future Dodge compact

    NE = Next Dakota

    RT = minivans; RM = Routan minivan; RU= future minivans (2015/2016?)

    Rams:
    D2 = Ram 3500; D3 = future Ram 3500?; DA = Ram 4500/5500; DD = Ram 3500 chassis; DE = ? ; DJ = Ram 2500/3500; DP = Ram 4500/5500; DS = Ram;

    DX: Ram (Mexico); DY: Ram (Mexico); DZ: New; DU: Future Ram; DT = Future Ram
