Ok guys, been a while since I posted something here but I may have stumbled upon something . Can anyone confirm this part number P68283555AB for the radio module. Im in disbelief if this is an re2 or rb5 (Navi) unit. I did some Google searches of the part number myself and the results I got we're it being an re2. But I need someone else to confirm this before I shed some light, depending on the info found on part number.

TFT + 8.4 + RE2/RB5 + Nav + uconnect mods thread (heavily Condensed!)

After reading through over 200 pages of info I have decided it would be nice to have a Straight forward thread listing every available option and difference as well as order of simplest to most difficult so anyone looking into doing this will have a 1 or 2 page look-up. Bam!

I'm not yet an expert, so anything anyone sees that should be added or Corrected, please don't hesitate to do so.

1. TFT ; Simply upgrading to TFT cluster looks to be one of the simplest upgrades involving only a few pieces. The TFT cluster, EVIC 6 button switch + proxi + correct the odometer reading Or just get/ wait for vehicle to match Cluster when it goes in. (Proxi corrects flashing odometer as well as some other issues but will not change cluster odometer reading)

TFT cluster swap is plug and play + proxi on all models including base radio. (TFT clusters were the same for each and any given model year with same features)

Some have had cluster odometer reading changed to match their vehicles average cost being 100-200.00. Most just get cluster with closest matching odometer and/ or wait till they match to do swap. Proxi can be done by dealer or you can do it yourself.

2. 8.4 touchscreen ; Quite a bit more complicated than TFT cluster swap, pieces needed include; RE2 or RB5 radio, bezel with or without light piping, screen, A/C controls, module, A/C wiring harness, HVAC controls, console with DVD player (optional) video signal wire, mirror W/mic, compass (optional) hands free module (if not already equipped)

Base CD/radio to 8.4 RE2 or RB5 with nav and depending on what functions you want. Not plug and play, going to involve wire splicing and running/ matching circuits plus anti-theft code + proxi

8.4 how to links;

3. Base vs RE2 vs RB5 tuners ; What works with what, and what else you need for any to work, that being the case.

4. Adding Back up cam in trunk ; So far it looks like wiring is all there if you already have 8.4 touchscreen. Can anyone confirm that all Darts have that wiring?

That's all I can think of for now. My hope is that through asking Q's and getting answers we can greatly Condense all of the info out there so anyone looking can find it All in one Short thread!

Once we get things rolling and sorted out from easiest to hardest as well as all options in between, can link threads to each for simple access. :cool:
Even if I have a 2016 dart with a standard transmission the cluster will still work along with everything else?
