Nope, the repin adapter is included in your picture.

Cab Net ICS integrated center stack = Disabled.
Cabin Net DCSD display screen module = Enabled.

Also, look at post 309 in this thread.

If anyone knows where to find a set up, or parts at a reasonable price please let me know. Over 2000 for bezel module and stack alone here in louisiana..

Thanks everyone,

John

Question:
I did the swap out this past weekend from the 8.4 to the 12.1 inch screen. Thanks to this page and @Jimmy07 it worked flawlessly (it took like 20 mins). I had zero issues. But . . . in my angst and excitement to install the new system . . . I failed to erase any personal data on the old 8.4 inch UAV brain I removed. Should I be concerned? Is there a way to erase it? I do plan on selling it to recoup some of the $1,900 I spent on the upgrade. . . .

Please advise if this has been asked . I have 2019 1500 (new body) with 8” non nav system. Level 2 alpine system. Looking to purchase 12” and upgrade . I’ve seen several n eBay approx pricing 6-700 up to 12-1600. Part I’m unsure about is are some of these screen sold without the model/brain which is needed or are they usually sold with what’s needed ( electronically ) ?
2nd can someone provide short list of items I’d need for the upgrade . So far I’m aware of alfaobd only for programming . I really appreciate any help given .

I just did it last week and I have same setup as you.

You need:
Screen (and bezel)
Media Module
LVDS Cable
Jumper Cable Connects from Back of 12" screen, is either black or grey and connects to your existing 8.4 small harness

ALfa to program
Security code for media module if it's not new

Thats "it"

Anyone know the correct part number for the 12" Bighorn Bezel? Seeing different part numbers for bezels and of course all mopar sites just show the diagram and not the actual bezel. Looking for that bighorn marble finish at the top of the bezel

The information in the link below has most of the information people should need to do the swap. I think the info should be stickied on the first post.

Not sure if any of the documents have the part numbers of the 8 pin connectors and terminals for the repin harness but I added them below from a previous post for the people that would like to build them themselves.

Female connector- https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=307001081
Female connector terminals (5)- https://www.digikey.com/product-det...amp-connectors/1393366-1/A101883CT-ND/2700940
Male connector- https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=309681081
Male connector terminals (5)- https://www.digikey.com/product-det...tors/2-1419158-5/17-2-1419158-5CT-ND/11492481

I just finished installing the 12” screen, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who helped here and shared their experience! Most of the answers are easy to find through the search;) But now I'm going to update the software, can someone tell me what software is better to put on my 2019 bighorn, the latest 39.9 or is there a more stable one?

Thanks for posting that as I am sure it will help. Can you tell us where the best place is to get these parts? Do you remember part numbers by chance?
Thanks in advance.
