I put a Clarion NX-501 in mine and it works great! The quality of the bluethoot sound when your on the phone is almost perfect. It got the nav and usb cable, rear backup cam ready and pretty much every thing you need. The touch screen works grat even in cold weather. Great buy and it looks great too, fits perfectly in th truck.

I have the same set up as you in my 09. Did you know you can run your iphone 4gs through bluetooth to play your music wirelessly. This is how I do it in my truck. I paired my phone to SYNC so everytime I get in the truck it automatically connects. I then scroll thru the AUX input until it goes to my phone. Sometimes I have to select my audio source with in the AUX menu to bluetooth. When the phone is paired, you can put your phone down in the cup holder and use the steering wheel controls to control the next song or back song or volume. Another great thing about it is when you get a call, it automatically turns the song off and rings through your sound system. You would then click the phone emblem on the steering wheel controls to answer. When done with the call, hold the phone symbol down and the song will automatically pick back up where you left off at.

When I got the truck I was confused to myself about song playback with the SYNC. Just read the manual over SYNC and it will soon be easy to navigate.

If you have any other questions, let me know and I will try my best to help you out.

Ok this is how I have to sometimes bring up the bluetooth audio on my truck. I make sure my phone is actually connected and paired with the truck first.

1)Hit the AUX button till it says "SYNC line in"

2)Hit the menu button until it says "Media Menu" on the radio screen

3)Hit OK when "Media Menu" is showing on radio screen, this is a number button below the menu button

4)Scroll through using the SEEK button until you find "SELECT SOURCE"

5)Hit OK

6)Then scroll through using the SEEK button again until you find "BT AUDIO"

7)Hit OK and it should then show what iphone is paired, Mine says "Atwoods iPhone" after I hit BT audio. After it shows which iPhone is paired, it will then automatically start playing songs, at least mine does. Then you can start using steering wheel controls

If this doesnt work for you, let me know.

Just look through the forum, actually make a search for aftermarket sub and amp in the 6.4l section. I have seen several different threads that explain how to do it and what equipment works best.
