2009 wrangler heater core

At Jeep this past weekend and they said its between a flush and replacing heater core. I went with the flush, cheaper. Heater worked great, one day. So looks like replacing heater core. Where can I get part cheap and is it easy to replace?

I got a quote from a shop for my heater core in my cherokee for $700. If you don't want to do it yourself, shop around.

For my cherokee I believe the part itself was under $200.

The stealership will always be most expensive.

[QUOTE="OTR"]I got a quote from a shop for my heater core in my cherokee for $700. If you don't want to do it yourself, shop around.

The stealership will always be most expensive. The hard part to doing it is getting to it. On my Cherokee the entire dash has to come out. The book showed it as an 8 hour job.

I hear the newer wranglers might not be as bad. Looking at my TJ, I still don't think it'd be fun. But actually changing it is easy. Getting there, in this case, is NOT fun.
