Head Units Compatible with U1C

I just bought an 05 Pursuit base with no options. It's got the base radio (U1C) that works but the screen is shot. What are my options for a drop-in replacement OEM radio? Will any 05-06 model fit?

Yes any 05-06 OEM will work but it has to be unlocked by the dealer unfortunately.

I've got 05-06 radios for sale. They are unlocked. Simply plug them in and turn the key

Thanks for the replies. If I switch in an unlocked radio do I still need to register it with a Tech II?

I have a tech2. I've already cleared the vin number. If you buy a radio that's not unlocked, yes, you'll need a tech2
