You can buy the sirius tuner and install kit from Dodge and it plugs right into your stereo. Cool thing about it, no FM tranceiver and it displays on your radio display as well as controlled from the steerring wheel controls

I am going to buy one soon.

Hey Ylw-Fvr

It does require an antenna mounted in full site of the sky and it does come with one in the kit. No matter what system you buy, you need an antenna. There are aftermarket mini antennas out there that you could mount with a magnet and run the mini cable through the weather stripping of the rear window. The MOPAR kit comes with a template to DRILL into your roof to mount the antenna and run the cable. (when I buy one) I am going to go with a mini antenna because I really don't want to drill into my yellow roof.

Drill?!

hey, thanks
i thought that was the deal
hmmm, i may opt for the mini ant as well.
5 years from now we may need to just plug that hole due to obsolesence.

I have an idea on how to install it...not sure how it works on Rams though.

On my F-150 I have the antenna hidden underneath the grates right underneath the windshield wipers. I have awesome reception and no ugly antenna stickin' out to advertise to the whole free world that you have high-tech equipment...

I use to have Delphi XM unit in my Jimmy, and I didn't like the antenna stuck on top at all. I think it basically told burgers that I had something that's an easy steal.
