About the iDatalink KIT-WJL1 Dash and Wiring Kit

Upgrade your Jeep's radio

You want to upgrade the radio in your 2018-up Jeep Wrangler/2020-up Jeep Gladiator, but the design of the factory dash makes it difficult. The iDatalink KIT-WJL1 factory system adapter (along with the Maestro ADS-MRR or ADS-MRR2 module, sold separately) lets you install an iDatalink-ready shallow-depth double-DIN (4" tall) car stereo and wire it up to your Jeep. You'll retain your steering wheel audio controls, along with the on-screen climate controls and cluster display. The radio bezel's rubberized coating and texture match your factory dash.

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The iDatalink Maestro KIT-WJL1 integration kit greatly simplifies the installation of the Maestro RR or RR2 Car Radio Replacement Interface module (sold separately) in select Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator vehicles when replacing your factory radio with an iDatalink Serial Port compatible head unit from Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, and Pioneer.

  • Vehicle Compatibility: Click here for a list of compatible Jeep vehicles.
  • Radio Compatibility: Click here for a list of fully compatible aftermarket head units with an iDatalink Serial Port.

Note: The iDatalink Maestro KIT-WJL1 installation kit requires the purchase of the iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 (sold separately).

Head Unit Connection: The KIT-WJL1 supports iDatalink's Direct T-Harnesses (sold separately) for direct connection to select iDatalink Serial Port compatible head units (including Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, and Pioneer radios) - replacing the wiring harness that comes with your aftermarket stereo (some hardwiring may still be required). If connecting to an aftermarket head unit that does not support an iDatalink Direct T-Harness, you'll need to cut off and remove the 20-pin black connector from the KIT-WJL1's harness and splice each wire directly to the aftermarket radio's corresponding wire.

Flashing Module via Weblink Desktop: The iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 will need to be loaded with correct firmware before installation. The included USB cable plugs into your computer and allows you to "flash" the Maestro RR with the appropriate firmware to prepare it for installation. Simply download Weblink Desktop (for Windows and Mac) onto your computer to access the appropriate firmware. System requirements include -

  • Windows PC (10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP/2000) or Mac OS X (Mojave [10.14], HighSierra [10.13], Sierra [10.12], El-Capitan [10.11])
  • Available USB port (version 2.0 or 3.0)
  • 4GB RAM or more
  • 200MB available space on HDD

  • Factory Amplifier: Retains factory premium audio amplifier with turn-on, fader, gain adjustment, DSP control, a speed compensated volume.
  • Steering Wheel Controls: Factory steering wheel controls are retained with two function buttons and expandable radio functions.
  • Media Hub: The included media hub retains your Jeep's factory USB-A ports and Aux input, as well as adds a HDMI jack. Your compatible aftermarket head unit must offer corresponding rear-panel USB-A ports, Aux input, and HDMI jack for connection.
  • Climate Control & Vehicle Settings: Climate display and control is accessible through a compatible aftermarket head unit's touchscreen. You can also access and modify vehicle settings through a compatible aftermarket head unit's touchscreen. In addition, you can control your vehicle's RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment) through your compatible aftermarket receiver's touchscreen.
  • Secondary Vehicle Display: Secondary vehicle display is retained (if factory equipped) with audio information and hands-free information.
  • Park Assist with Front Camera Control: Park Assist chimes are retained through the use of the KIT-WJL1 (factory backup camera is not retained). If you add an aftermarket front camera (sold separately) to your idatalink compatible head unit that is equipped with dual camera inputs, the vehicle's factory auto camera switching feature is also retained.

Note: The KIT-WJL1 does not retain your Jeep's factory backup camera.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

Q
With the WJL1, would I also need a separate rCH3 harness or does the WJL1 include everything I need?

Greetings William. Thank you for your question. This kit has wiring, however it also needs the Maestro RR, or RR2 programmable module. The new stereo must also be Idatalink Maestro ready, and your vehicle may also need a radio antenna adapter. Please contact one of our advisors at 800-324-9695 to get you set up.
