    I'm not quite sure if this is the right board, but hopefully you all can help me out.

    I just purchased a used 1998 Jeep Cherokee, and the previous owner installed a custom sound system. I was playing with it the other day and it says it has an auxiliary input, I am assuming that it takes a 3.5mm input jack (for those of you who don't know, it's a regular headphone jack).

    I love listening to my iPod, so I don't want it left out of my "new" toy. Is there a place I can buy it for cheap or am I out of luck?

    Guessing you need one w/ two male ends? I got one from Radioshack myself. Got it a few years back but I think it was <$10.

    Thanks for the reply, I will check out Radioshack, if not I'll go to Ultimate Electronics and see if they have it.

    yeah, radioshack definitely carries them. i bought a 6 incher since i didnt want excess cord laying around the front of my car. that way the ipod also stays very close to the stereo unit. i believe i paid around $5, which isnt bad, especially when you consider how outrageously overpriced radioshack tends to be

    Since you said you assume it takes a 3.5mm jack. Did you visually see a jack that looks like a headphone jack. Often the Auxilliary input is on the back of the stereo and consists of a left and a right rca jack. In which case you would need to go to radio shack and get an rca to 3.5mm mini jack adapter.
