Jensen JMS 2212 Install

I just finished the Jensen install on my 2006 LT. I really struggled with getting the factory stereo repaired or going with the Jensen. In the end, the Jensen was cheaper and has more features.
The install was not too difficult but was pretty time consuming. I kept all the factory connectors outside the stingray. I soldered and shrink tubed all connections inside the stingray.
The Jensen sounds great! (In the garage that is. Still too cold in Iowa to ride. 18 deg. today.)
I wanted to thank whomever came up with this option. I also wanted to thank all that have posted about the Jensen install.
This site has been invaluable to me as I am a new LT owner. Next project is the EBC rear rotor and pads.

See what I can do about pics. Nothing different from what others have done and posted pics of.

Re: Jensen JMS 2212 Install

Anyone who has done this: What happens to the weather integrity of the stingray? I know it's not waterproof today, but every time I remove mine it appears well protected under there.

Re: Jensen JMS 2212 Install

The Jensen control head that flush mounts has a gasket on it. There are two small holes left from the original control unit that is removed that have to be sealed. There also is a square opening from the old control unit that has to be sealed.
On mine, I had to drill a hole on the left side of the bottom of the stingray for the antenna and one for the control cable on the top of the stingray. I used a rubber grommets and silicone for these. I also soldered and shrink tubed all connections.
As long as you take the time and seal up any openings you add or create from this install, I don't see how it would be any less water tight.
The good thing is if water did get in the stingray the Jensen is waterproof.
