    I figured this was the thread where folks have the most experience removing the radio bezel. My old truck had the jump seat so no center console. To remove the bezel it was just, remove the two screws on the top, give it some yanks, and off she came. Is the bucket seat version the same?

    For my 2017 1500 sport there is an extra torx screw in the bottom of the little cubby hole in top of the 110v socket. You also have to remove the center console tray first, single bolt at the bottom under the rubber mat and 2 Philip screws where you would put sunglasses.

    Watch for that 3rd torx in the cubby ... mine went sub-sonic when I yanked the panel out and now it's MIA somewhere in the truck.

    Thank you very much. I would have missed the console screws for sure.

    Thanks @Shane downes! Is that from a 2017 Chrysler 200? Does it still require the M2 mods harness?

    I'm just diving into potentially upgrading my 2015 8.4 radio and have overwhelmed myself reading through much of this thread. For 2015's, it seems there are very minimal compatibility issues for the conversion? I have a few additional questions that I'm sure most of which have been covered. Hopefully this post will help summarize new information and help others as well.

    1. Radio - I'm planning on sticking with navigation type radio, option 1.
      1. 4C-Nav UAQ (P/N 68331631AK)
      2. 4C UAS (P/N 68331635AK)
    2. Hub - I prefer to go with option 3 or 4. Anyone make / sell adapter plates for the USB-C hub?
      1. Ram (P/N 68328704AC) - dual USB with AUX inputs. Requires modifications or additional parts for installation.
      2. Compass (P/N 5XG28DX9AC) - single USB with AUX input. Requires minimal modifications, but does not fit previous hole perfectly.
      3. 2017 Chrystler 200 (P/N 68283703AA) - dual USB with AUX inputs. Looks like it may fit existing hole well with minimal modifications.
      4. Ram USB-C (P/N 68272254AE) - dual USB & USB-C with AUX inputs. Requires modifications or additional parts for installation. (please confirm part number is correct- I also saw P/N 68397098AE listed in this thread. Not sure of difference)
    3. Hub Harness - contact M2 mods
    4. Customtronix JailBreaker Enzo - will this work with my truck / replacement radio?
      1. I'm currently using their software jailbreak in my 2015. I see a note on the JailBreaker Enzo page that says "RAM vehicles that display the reverse camera in the rear view mirror are NOT compatible with the Jailbreaker Enzo line of products!!" which leads me to believe it will not work for my truck.
    Anything I'm missing?
