Just right for on the job

This rugged stereo boasts AM, FM, and Weather Band tuning, giving you plenty of entertainment choices and real-time warnings when bad weather threatens. An auxiliary input located behind a rubber cover on the front panel offers the option of plugging in a portable music player or satellite radio tuner. You can access the simple controls even when you're wearing gloves, and the blue backlit display won't wash out when the sun is beating down.

If you need to take your radio out of your rig or equipment when the job's over, the JHD1130B's battery backup saves your radio presets and system settings until the next time you hook it up.

    We use these radios in all of our farm equipment. They are built rugged and always sound great!

    Pros: Does not need a constant 12v power source for memory.

    Cons: Would have rather had the bluetooth model but didn't think it was worth an extra money to upgrade.

    I replaced my factory radio with this unit on my 2007 Kubota RTV100 UTV. It fit perfectly and was a very easy install. I would highly recommend this radio for this type of installation. I am a novice when it comes to this type of replacement and I had no problems

    2006 Lincoln Zephyr
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The radio itself is just fine and is what I wanted, i.e., something simple. Unfortunately, although I specified the make and model of the car (Lincoln Zephyr, 2006) and although Crutchfield confirmed that the radio would fit, it did not. I had a professional installer whom I authorized to cut my dashboard panel to make it fit. He had some frames that fit to cover the cuts, so all was well that indeed ended well. I caution those who might order to be cognizant of the possibility that the unit may be too wide. Also, this unit has no yellow, or hot wire, but it must have some sort of battery inside to retain the settings, so if you install it yourself, be aware that you will have a yellow as part of the car that can ignored, for without this hot wire, this unit retains its settings.



    Crutchfield response on 11/14/2016 Thanks to this review, we researched the dimensions of this Jensen Heavy Duty receiver further. These results provided more accuracy for our OutfitMyCar fit application.

    I replaced another Jenson with this one, the RV installer didn't wire the first one correct so there where problems, I followed the directions and everything is working just great with this one, I thought the first one was a bad radio but probably could have been fixed with a rewire

    Was great

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This radio was great for about a year. After that I started noticing bands going in and out. Now most all my mids bands come in and out distorting sound quality. Also my aux port now only plays on the driver side. I would like to give the radio another shot but it's hard to drop over a $100 on something that might have similar issues. I will also say that I am the only person I know of to have problems out of this radio.



    Great product

    Heavy Duty: The Jensen Heavy Duty JHD1130 is an AM/FM/RBDS/WB in-dash receiver.

The following tests are performed on Jensen's Heavy Duty in-dash receivers.
