    If a member is not able to provide something, I bought my UAS through car-parts.com. You indicate you are looking for RA4, not sure what that is beyond 2018 but in that year it did not have Android Auto and Apple Car Play capabilities. If you want those they are UAS and UAQ, maybe different designation in 2020. Good luck.

    Thanks guys for the feedback, I have changed the thread title as per your request.

    Yeah, I'm looking for the the 8.4" UAS w/CarPlay.
    As per my research into this, the upgrade from the 5" screen will require a complete kit (radio, bezel, etc.).
    I have already checked the Infotainment and 4th Gen Ram Electronics websites, but their prices are high from my budget.
    So I thought buying a used one from the members in the form might be cheaper, as I saw in some thread on the "For Sale" form, the prices are much lower.

    Reach out to M2 mods one of our site vendors to see if he can make you the harnesses needed for the swap.

    https://www.ramforum.com/forums/m²-mods.166/

    His harness makes this a plug and play swap. Sourcing the parts yourself and selling your stock stuff will save you a ton of money over one of the complete kits.

    He may not need it, I believe the 2019 Classic (4.5 Gen) is the same Wiring as a 2018, But please confirm that with those that are more knowledgeable than I

    Yes, I believe you are correct.

    As per the link chri5k shared below, my 2019 is equipped with the new media hub (just like the one in the capture below), so I probably don't need for this conversion?

    So the only items I will need for the conversion will be the 8.4" UAS radio and the bezel kit? (see the attachment below for the current interior look of my truck).

    That is what I meant, I did the same conversion in my truck that came with a 7 speed fan.

    All I needed was one harness and a new HVAC module along with the 911 cable from M2 mods. You should just need those things as well.

    (I did an RA4 so I didn't need the new media hub. Might get a UAQ one day though.)
