    I don’t want to be “that guy” but there are dozens of threads here about head units, and thousands on the internet.
    Pioneer, Kenwood, and Alpine are the brands to stay with, but if you want someone to do your homework for you, this might not be the place

    I have a 2013 DCSB and I just installed a Joying Unit. I don't have the JBL system, but mine was literally plug and play. Steering wheel controls worked right away, CarPlay, basically an android tablet with more power and tweaking for sound than the head unit ever did. Took a whole 10 min to install literally! So far, no regrets other than figuring out how to hook up to the rear OEM camera

    I'm in the same boat. My '14 DCLB Limited JBL unit is doing the random on/off thing more frequently so I'm looking for a nice replacement. There are a lot of brands I've never heard of (Joyjng, Boss, Dasaida, etc.). I'd like as many of the factory options to work as possible (usb/aux plugs, steering wheel controls, camera). Another issue is that when I look at Crutchfield, nothing is available. Slim pickin's at the moment.
