Default I need help with a Jeep Mopar RBQ Radio

Has anyone been able to hardwire your Pnp to this Jeep Mopar HU? I have the Mopar RBQ (in dash 6 CD changer) and from what I can tell, there are no available adapters to hardwire into this unit despite there being a mode button and an open 10-pin access to the HU (I've called PIE and others). Here is a pic of the back of this HU: http://www.wjjeeps.com/radio_remove5.jpg . The other 12-pin access is for the existing wiring (to power, speakers,etc.). From what I understand, the open 10-pin adapter is for Mopar's OEM Sirius unit, which costs around $300 for the receiver and wiring! Here is a wiring diagram of the 10-pin input for the Jeep OEM Sirius unit: http://www.wjjeeps.com/artist_cable_82208322.jpg . I already have a JVC Pnp that I love (use in my car, home, and on my motorcycle), but living in Chicago, the wireless FM modulation is terrible . I have tried a powered FM modulator, which I'm not happy with (lots of static anyway and no AM-->I like local news). I want to try the SIRSWB, but this thing is impossible to obtain. So what are my options? Does anyone have experience w/Mopar wiring? If Mopar uses the the open 10-pin access for the the OEM Sirius receiver, why can't an adapter be made to get Pnp input into the HU? I might have to attempt this myself. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

O.k. that second cable is ONLY for a Sirius unit made for the system. It will not work with any of the PNP models.

My suggestion is to go to www.crutchfield.com and ask them if they know of anything that will interface with the main unit as an AUX IN.
