Does anyone know if I swap out my stereo for a stock replacement unit purchased off eBay if I will need to take it to dodge to be reprogrammed. I am looking to swap out the one in my truck because the aux plug is broken. It would be cheaper to buy a used one than have the original one fixed as long as I don't have to go through the hassle of reprogramming it at a dealership.

Unless dodge got even crazier with the can-bus stuff than normal you should be able to just swap it out.
The only downside is that getting a used one on ebay its really hard to say that it is going to be any better than what you have now.
Make sure the place has a good warranty and return/exchange policy.
