In [22] , Jab loński proved that a piecewise expanding C 2 multidimensional Jab loński map admits an absolutely continuous invariant probability measure (ACIP). In [6], Boyarsky and Lou extended this result to the case of i.i.d. compositions of the above maps, with an on average expanding condition. We generalize these results to the (quenched) setting of random Jab loński maps, where the randomness is governed by an ergodic, invertible and measure preserving transformation. We prove that the

Furthermore, we provide two different upper bounds on the number of mutually singular ergodic ACIPs, motivated by the works of Buzzi [9] in one dimension and Góra, Boyarsky and Proppe [19] in higher dimensions.
