Wrangler JL – DIY Radio Install HEIGH10 – HIGH END Sound & TONS of features!

Let’s install the Stinger HEIGH10 in our Jeep Wrangler JL! If you have a Wrangler JL or Gladiator JT you may feel that the audio system is lacking. The first step for any great audio system is a great source unit. The JL/JT dash is very shallow though and doesn’t have the room for a normal double din head unit. There are also many factory features like climate controls and vehicle option settings that need to be retained. How can we retain those features and get a large screen to fit? We need a purpose built kit! In this video we dive into installing Stinger Off-Road’s HEIGH10 with Wrangler/Gladiator Integration kit!

    Just finished my install yesterday. Thanks for such a detailed video. One question I have is my screen looks a little washed out on white backgrounds. Where I see it most is maps in CarPlay. Have you seen this before and any idea what it could be? Loose connection? Defective heigh10 display? Thanks

  2. jmalacon on September 15, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Does it improve sound quality?

  3. DAVID UNKNOWN on September 15, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    I would definitely get this, however I’m not confident to install this on my own. Do you have a shop? Where are you located? Subscribed!

  4. Cleo Clinton on September 15, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    If the top is off and it rains is it water proof

  5. Steve Beck on September 15, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    does the picture change to a gladiator if its put in the glad?

  6. Etienne Biart on September 16, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Any way to connect carplay through the usb-c input in the front ? I hate using the usb in the center console

  7. Oscr M on September 16, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Entro a la pagina y no me sale el boton para comprarlo

  8. Joe Davis on September 16, 2021 at 12:04 am

    How long was total install? Thanks.

  9. bob rowe on September 16, 2021 at 12:04 am

    you showed a sd slot for off road information/maps at the beginning. It looks like after the install that slot is not usable. Correct?
    I have a zautomotive mini programmer that allows me to change many factory options. Does this help/hinder the Stinger functions?

  10. Mike Maha-Su on September 16, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Your logo background is very busy!! 😜

  11. Mycarography on September 16, 2021 at 12:06 am

    My gladiator mic picks up a lot of background noises. How is the mic on this unit? Any noise cancellation feature? Thx in advance

  12. woomdawg on September 16, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Do you know if this unit is running android? Can you sideload apps?

  13. Josh Hunt on September 16, 2021 at 12:08 am

    I’m heavily considering upgrading to this. But is all of the vehicle info and climate control available outside of jeeps? I have a 2018 Gmc sierra. I have seen install videos for my truck model, but I’ve only seen the vehicle info shown in a few videos and I think they were all jeeps…

  14. Chadd Thompson on September 16, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Mark, Do you know if the Uconnect phone app for remote starting etc still works when you install this? Also wondering if has real time traffic on the navigation?

  15. John Doe on September 16, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Do you know if this radio unit will be able to support a transceiver (ham radio)

  16. Scott Davis on September 16, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Does this work with the buttons for volume and radio tuning buttons on the back of the steering wheel?

  17. Steven P on September 16, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Screen looks great even with all of the ambient light.

  18. Nick n on September 16, 2021 at 12:12 am

    I wanted a stinger stereo for a while and was saving up to get the 10” but everywhere I’ve looked online they have pretty bad reviews, and I’m not exactly sure why. They sounded like they were supposed to be good quality.

  19. Otnip Graphics on September 16, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Hi! Can you explain how the HDMI works? I wanted to get the video to play so I unplugged the HDMI from the back of the brain and connected an HDMI to USB-C and plugged in my phone. That worked, however, that ended up knocking my backup camera out. I’m out of ideas on how to get them both to work?

  20. #16 Racing on September 16, 2021 at 12:14 am

    stereo looks like it cost more than the car. Jeep – just empty every pocket

  21. Ken Hadden on September 16, 2021 at 12:15 am

    One hell of an impressive unit. Too bad it’s not waterproof. That’s a deal breaker for me since my top is off from late spring to mid fall.

  22. Keith Courville on September 16, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Any idea if they have a Canadian distributor? I can’t find it anywhere in Ontario but I NEEEEEED this unit!!!!

  23. Mikeycrzed on September 16, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Wonder if installed on a gladiator will the vehicle info screen show a picture of a wrangler? Or a gladiator?

  24. Solotiger on September 16, 2021 at 12:21 am

    I just put this in my 2014 Silverado, and it’s amazing!

  25. DiamondDan1589 on September 16, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Is it a MINI hdmi or MICRO hdmi input on the back?

  26. Damon Mallott on September 16, 2021 at 12:22 am

    I just ordered one can’t wait to get it in. Net thing will be to upgrade the speakers and maybe add a little sub.

  27. teyjizzle on September 16, 2021 at 12:23 am

    what speakers for 2020 flu wrangler sport. no amp though please help

  28. AnaBoy Aguilar on September 16, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Need this for my Jeep 🥴

  29. Leonel Rodriguez on September 16, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Can you stream video? Like hulu, netflix or YouTube. Is the android auto and car play wired or can it work wireless?

  30. c on September 16, 2021 at 12:29 am

    The base radio is the worst, it dosen’t even function. On my third one now, looking into this but is it waterproof?

  31. CarAudioFabrication on September 16, 2021 at 12:29 am

    DON’T FORGET! Stinger Off-Road was super cool and is hooking us up with a special limited time offer on this!

  32. RoRo Germono on September 16, 2021 at 12:30 am

    Just installed this in my JL, I’m having issues with the usb drive. I’ve reformatted 3 different drives, 64gb and 16gb, left them plugged in for 24 hours but the kit will not read any of them. Any advice/ ideas?

  33. BAD DECISION on September 16, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Do all of them come with the HDMI Outlet in the back of the stereo

  34. mikefly562 on September 16, 2021 at 12:32 am

    I just had this installed on in my 2021 Wrangler Rubicon yesterday, including the integration kit. So far, its running well and really looking forward to having this system. Its really feature rich compared to my 7" unit.

  35. Bill Lambert on September 16, 2021 at 12:33 am

    What is it about Jeeps ? They seem to have the broadest integration support in the car audio industry, even though they represent a fairly small chunk of auto sales. Meanwhile I cannot find a single accessory for my own inexpensive SUV, of which I see hundreds on the road daily.

  36. kevin auman on September 16, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Now that is just plain BADASS I’d love to have a kit to install this into my older 08 yukon denali but I’m afraid the tech is too new so it is mainly for newer vehicles which use many of the available features 😕

  37. Cristian Gaedicke on September 16, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Nice head unit, but the screen has way too much glare

  38. spars332 on September 16, 2021 at 12:35 am

    Hi, I just bought a 2021 Wrangler Sport S 2 door. I plan to upgrade the 7 inch unit to the HEIGH10. I currently have as home audio a Devialet 140 and Sopra no1. What speakers-sub /amp combo would you recommend in the jeep? Any help is greatly appreciated.

  39. MrCaptainobvious9999 on September 16, 2021 at 12:35 am

    Wow. The integration is remarkable. Kudos to Stinger- this looks like an excellent product from all standpoints.

  40. Simranjit singh on September 16, 2021 at 12:38 am

    I installed this screen yesterday by a professional. But today i found my music volume remains half than before. Very disappointed. I did every setting in music setting. But it does not work. I have one doubt. The one who installed this screen he gave option of carplay in another usb port. Maybe this is the reason. Kindly help me.

  41. David Bowling on September 16, 2021 at 12:39 am

    Quick question mark, because this radio has built in time alignment and crossovers is it a good replacement for a dsp

  42. J. Ward on September 16, 2021 at 12:39 am

    Wish they made a big head unit for the JK 😟

  43. Ben Leffke on September 16, 2021 at 12:41 am

    I have the more basic AC / Heat controls (no auto) I assume the AC controls won’t work on this head unit because of that, right? Little unsure how the AC screen will look like in my case.

    One of the reasons I like the idea of getting this head unit is that it has a volume control knob. In my case when I upgrade I’ll lose the only volume control knob I have and will be limited to steering wheel control. This solves that issue. Great video!

  44. Marty Flynn on September 16, 2021 at 12:41 am

    Good video…I installed this unit the other day…awesome!

  45. Sr. Cloud Engineer III on September 16, 2021 at 12:42 am

    Can this unit play video ? in general or via the HDMI port ?

  46. CRXUGLYKID on September 16, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Love your content love you build but can you please do a video of installing speakers into all four doors itself that you have to actually cut into the door panel would be awesome I’m planning on getting the ds18 door pods for all the doors but the speaker’s I’m going to be putting in half to get cutouts done to the door panels so I would like to see it actually getting done on video so I have a better idea what am I getting myself into thanks a million keep up the good work

  47. Finn Custom Knives on September 16, 2021 at 12:49 am

    Are you still enjoying this? I am pretty much sold on it, just need to save some moolah for it.
    I really don’t have any issues with the 7" screen itself but the audio quality and power delivered from it is absolutely abysmal. I knew it going in, and should have gotten the premium audio package, but when you live with it day to day its a bit ridiculous for a near 55k vehicle to have that awful of a sound system.

    Appreciate the video!

  48. willie jones on September 16, 2021 at 12:49 am

    Is this unit only for Jeep’s I’d like to put one in my 17 Chrysler 300

  49. amorton94 on September 16, 2021 at 12:50 am

    This thing is awesome! I wish it had this level of support for my car.

  50. pierce cohen on September 16, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Hey man ! Just had mine installed and my back up camera isn’t showing . Is there any things I can do as a novice to fix this ?
