Bob / Alan, I put this Retrosound unit in my BJ8 last winter. It fit  
well but the sound is terrible. It has a tinny, cheap sound and I used  
excellent speakers with it. The MP3 jack broke after a week of use.  
It's coming out this winter.

I'll make you a great deal on it. Actually, I wouldn't.
