Default Nice or not?

If it's free, you might as well put it in.

Yeh it's free but would it be worth it to buy a harness and everything and hooking it up?

Yes. You have to have the stuff to install it if you buy a nice headunit anyways so why not just go ahead and buy it now?

I already know what I have to have to install it...? I said IS IT WORTH buying all of it or should I keep the stock head unit?

Are you happy with the headunit you have now? If so, leave it out. On the flip side, if it's free, and you plan on upgrading sometime in the future, you might as well throw down the $20 for a harness and put it in.

I only want to put this in because I'm planning on putting two 6x9's in there too.

Any mp3 player support? That would be the clincher for me.

I have the ipod connector on the bottom of my dash so I wouldn't need a deck that has one.

That connection on the bottom of your dash is connected to the factory head unit, unless that JVC has a aux input (that you could figure out a way to connect the dash input too) you will loose that connection for your ipod.

So if you want to play your ipod mostly either keep the stock deck or a get a new aftermarket one that has ipod control or auxiliary input like the one on the dash.
