Here is the response I had from Crutchfield. It kinda sucks for the VES as I was hoping to get the sound out of the car speakers... I did a quick research and it doesn't seem like anyone was able to do this either... And you were right my friend the F90BT is discontinued
I am not sure what unit I would go with but it's still very good info.
Thanks for shopping the Crutchfield web site. I'm Niles, and I'm glad to help.
In answer to your question about adding a new receiver to your 2005 Grand Cherokee, I'm not sure where you received this information previously. However, much of it is accurate. But, there are some issues here. First the Pioneer Premier AVIC-F90BT receiver is discontinued from our inventory and we're out of them. Newer radios will have options for adding the Sirius tuner to it.
Next, the antenna adapter I'm showing as the correct one is here:
Now as far as retaining the rear entertainment system, here's the note for your vehicle in our database:
"The factory DVD entertainment system will still operate if the factory radio is removed. However, you'll only be able to hear DVD audio using the factory headphones."
This is the case regardless of what radio you choose. So, your best to get the current radios that fit your vehicle and proper installation gear for the job would be the receiver fit information found in our "Outfit My Car" application. Just point your browser to:
Once you've entered your vehicle information, the car radio selections will automatically be filtered to show only those items that fit your car's dash location. You can use product category links to find the items you're looking for. Using the Online Vehicle Selector for your order also ensures that you will get the installation accessories you are entitled to, so you can start enjoying your new gear sooner.
And, the appropriate the Sirius tuner package can be found in the "Accessories" tab for the receiver you choose. Looking for a neat, easy way of making the wire connections? Check out this clean and simple connector system from Posi-Products:
