I didn't go to the dealer at all. When I installed the 8.4, it needed an anti-theft code right away or nothing would work at all. I went to justanswer.com and messaged Brad (who is a certified Jeep mechanic) and I gave him the VIN of the car the 8.4 came from and the serial number of the 8.4. He then messaged me back 10 min later with the anti-theft code and worked just great. It only cost me $20 to retrieve it. That was a HUGE savings than going into the dealership which I heard they could charge $100-$300 just to get the anti-theft code. Saved a lot of time too.

And I know the 5.0 has those options. I just wanted a bigger screen and better system
