    Yes you'll need a line out converter JL Clean Sweep is the best imo.

    yea ive been weighing my options and the more and more i read about the nightmare of the stock unit im leaning towards aftermarket.

    will i still have to retain the stock amp for the speakers or will that be removed and have to be dealt with as far as rewiring?

    Just tear it all out and start over. Head, amp, speaker wiring, speakers and a sub. It isn't worth trying to "fix" a stock system- IMO

    The Cleensweep is as much as a good head unit alone.

    Oh, and don't forget sound deadening in all your doors when you're doing this.
