Bose or non-Bose radio? Blue or red cluster? What year did it come out of?
What’s your setup?
20x9.5 ProComp 6089 -6 offset. 305/55/20 Nitto Trail Grapplers. The wheels are long discontinued. I’ve had these for 10 years.
Could you get a measurement from the face of the rotor to the outermost protrusion of the caliper and the measurement of the wheel mounting surface to the same location on the caliper? Might help us figure out if these will clear wheels before finding out we need spacers. Thanks.
Then I screwed the second circuit board onto the adapter plate. Put the wires back into the connector, XM in pin 2, other thing in pin 1. Then re wrap the wires with fabric tape. Reinstall the painted cover.
Time to swap circuit boards. The XM one is easy, it is a direct swap. Same size, same screw pattern. The other circuit board is not. The one from the old antenna is much smaller and none of the screw holes align with the new antenna base. So I gave my son the circuit board from the new antenna and he 3D printed me an adapter plate for the old circuit board. Here it is installed.
On the new antenna base unscrew the two circuit boards. Cut the connectors off all three wires and toss it all in the garbage. Now take a drill and make the wire hole in the new antenna base plate big enough to fit the wires of the old electronics through the hole. I used a 1/4” drill bit.
On the old antenna, mark the wires and pin locations, then with a little regular screw driver pop out the white clip that holds the wires into the connector. Take out all the little screws that hold the two circuit boards to the base plate. The end on the wires are too big to pull up through the wire hole in the base plate. Then use something to cut a slot in the old antenna base plate (I used a dremel with a cut off wheel) so that you can get the wires out of the base plate.
These are the electronics inside the old antenna. The small black one at the bottom is marked “XM” and has one wire that goes to pin 2 on the connector. Not sure what the top thing does, but it’s wire goes to pin 1. Some people have done this by only swapping the XM piece and claim everything works as it should. I’m a “it has to be there for a reason” kind of guy so I swapped both pieces.
