satellite radio help

Anyone know off hand if the stock radio in an 05 hemi durango has an input jack in the back for a sirius satellite radio? If not, is there a way to make it work or do I need to buy a new stereo?

Are you asking about a regular input jack like is on the front of my stereo?

yeah, they're different, mine's just a single disc. I just included the pic to show the jack on mine. I can tell you that there wasn't anything like that on the back of mine when I had it out and apart. Just the antenna in and the normal radio harness with power in and speaker wires out. Typically there isn't a hidden input on the back of car stereos. I can't speak for your particular radio but I wouldn't get my hopes up of getting it to work the easy way. So I take it you're keeping the rango for a while Glad it's still running good!

Well aren't you just the bearer of bad news??..lol. kinda like when I was told "looks like youre rebuilding the motor" by a certain someone who DEFINITELY knows what he's talking about...lol. Yea I think we're gonna keep it for a while. Been running great so...fingers crossed...lol

I guess I'm in the market for a stereo. I would like to stick with a stock stereo if possible but with the jack for the satellite radio. I'm getting it for my wife for christmas and it's gonna suck if I cant install it for her

They make some decent plates that fit almost any stereo seamlessly....problem is they look goofy with the wood grain looking dash I've looked into upgrading mine too because my cd player doesn't work, same problem...can't find a way to install it so it looks like it is supposed to be there.
