if you want to use the mopar ipod integration kit you are looking at some good coin. Since you already have sirius and there is only one plug on the back of the radio you need a mux box and a y cable so that the two devices can be used with just the one plug.

First the ipod integration kit will be in the range of $150
mux box - in the range of $20
Y-cable - in the range of $120
labor ??? - if you don't feel comfortable hooking it up yourself

This is why I now have an aftermarket deck. It was cheaper to sell my RB1 and ipod integration kit and get a new deck, new ipod integration kit, and a whole new sirius tuner. Plus I had about $100 in my pocket when it was all said and done

For sure, with Alpine for example, a simple Ipod cable is $50 and it gets controlled on the deck 10x better then it will on a factory one.

im in the same boat!!!

im guessing the rb4 is the oem navscreen with sirius and 6 disc...

is it really worth it to strip it off and try to sell it rather then the integration kit???
