Sorry Spent an hour plus in the search i am sure this has been asked a billion times. My searches though are not getting results.

I just added Android Auto/Apple Carplay to my Uconnect 2017 and started a thread.

i just recently went down this rabbit hole too with my 2017 Ram, i narrowed it down to 2 options.

1st option - Crutchfield Pac system + aftermarket head unit.

2nd option - 2018 Ram UAS/UAQ head unit (i just saw a thread on someone getting a newer one install that is in multiple pieces, screen and unit are separate)

I would have gone with the 1st option as the 2nd option gets expensive very fast. I however was able to go with the 2nd option because i found a wrecked 2018 with the headunit i needed. I personally would go with the 2nd option if you can simply because it uses all factory items minus an adapter harness you can get on ebay or by supporting a local guy on these forums @Mpgrimm2.
