First up, almost CRIED laughing when I saw the pictogram in step 4

Next up, if you have a Dremel or other smallish rotary tool, I HIGHLY recommend opening up the 3 holes for step 2- you're throwing away the piece you'll need to cut, anyway, and it saves massive time! Saying a flathead screwdriver fits in there is sheer and utter bollocks!
Also, make sure the Jeep is RUNNING when you test the cruise on/off button, or you may have a moment of panic when nothing happens Mark W.

Any idea what a dealership would charge you to put it on?

More than the cost of EVERY tool you might need to do this. Really. It's VERY easy. A cordless Dremel is ~$50 max, and then a screwdriver, a 13mm (and a 10 or 12mm to remove the battery terminal) socket and ratchet, and a set of pliers.

Book time must be at least an hour or two on this, so $1-200. It really is an easy DIY- took me maybe half an hour after I figured out to Dremel out those holes- Mark W.

I did this myself. It was mostly-easy and well worth it. There's an awesome write-up at the other jeep forum. The person posted pictures of each step, however, the MOPAR instructions are sufficient.

Two tough parts were...

(1) popping the clips to remove the airbag. A straight flathead screwdriver does not work well. The flat-head side of one of these right-angle screwdrivers made all the difference.



(2) Pulling off the steering wheel. After removing the center bolt, I had to wiggle mine back and forth for about 15 minutes. It was on the the splined shaft very tight, but it loosened up gradually. At first I thought I'd never get it off. I didn't whack myself in the head with it though.

^ True- forgot to mention removing the wheel. There is a reason for the pictogram! That sucker is really on there. Keep wiggling- do NOT use a pry bar or anything like that! You may put a nasty hole in your dash/IP if you do! Mark W.

I set it up when I bought the jeep, I paid for the kit and they installed it for free.
