young-blood To Stagman: BTW The wheel only needs to be pulled if your clockspring does not have the cruise control wires. Even if you don't have the OEM plug for the cruise servo under the hood, you may have the proper clockspring depending on your year.
Pull your airbag and look behind it, if you have wires not being used with little plugs on them then you already have the right clockspring and do not have to pull the wheel.
All of these wires go through connector C107 in your service manual. In mine they entered one end of the plug, but the terminals going into the engine compartment weren't there.

Wonder how much Jeep actually saved to delete something like 5 wires and a plug.

young-blood I just did the cruise control install on an 04 LJ using parts from a scrapyard. Plan on doing a simple writeup. Cruise control can be had for about $175 using salvaged parts if you dont have the wiring harness. Cheaper if you do.
I also happened to have the correct clockspring pre-installed, tho no underhood wires connected, pissed I had already bought one.

When I pulled my steering wheel I found that I already had the correct clock spring installed and didn't really need to change it. If there are plugs under the airbag attached to the existing clockspring that fit into the oem switches, your probably good to go.

If this is directed at me, I'm sorry I don't quite understand your request. Are you asking for the total instruction set or are the two pages I already posted previously good enough?

If you need a picture of the plug by the master cylinder, let me know and I'll take one this weekend.

The puller for the steering wheel is available at most tool or rental stores should be pretty cheap.

OEM buttons are included in the kit

Good luck, you should find it very straight forward and if you have any questionsshoot me a PM or post to this thread.

When I bought my Jeep, it was 6 hours from home. Hence the cruise control install. I've since put a couple of 2 to 3 hour tours on and really enjoy the comfort

grump010 Sorry I forgot to post this on the weekend, so here are just a couple of pages to show the caliber of the instructions. Oh and this is supplied by Jeeps Are Us and posted here with permission.
Attachment 25806
Attachment 25807

I also have to add that the screws that attach the servo motor to the bracket by the M-Cylinder were not supplied in the kit I got, I just used a couple of 1/4" SS bolts and nuts that I had on hand. To make it easier, pick up a couple of self tappers and you should be good to go.

Thanks, I'll do that--They don't answer their phone--I emailed and waiting for a reply/ Pete in Tampa

I have a 2004 5speed with factory installed cruise control. Ordered it that way.

grump010 Hey Pete,
My sport had the wiring harness factory installed. Jeeps are us has the wiring harness for the CC as an additional item to the CC and it shouldn't take more than a couple more hours for the average DIYer to install the wiring harness along with the CC kit.

Cheers

Where did you get wiring harness? I have a 2002 Sport and can't find the plug to indicate the Jeep is prewired. Pete in Florida

coop42 Thank you much, sir..

grump010 I got a PM to send a pic of the plug and general location, so I thought I would post it here for others to see.
Don, let me know if you need anything else.

For us Canadians the fee with USPS was $5.00 Handling and GST, about $43.00 so it made it well worth the upgrade.

grump010 I got the delivery attempt notice today and I'll pick up the package at the Post Office tommorrow. I should have time this weekend as I'm working nights this week and I'm also trying to epoxy coat the shop floor before it gets too cold out. I'll post pictures of the box contents and my progress as I work through the install. For now, it's so nice out so I'm going for a drive in the TJ to do some Moose spotting for the upcoming hunting season.

I guess it could be seen as pricey, but it's OEM and I like that. I had an aftermarket cruise installed on my 08 F250 SD, Diesel and after a $850.00 I'm still not completely happy with it, but it's a work truck... I didn't have to pay for it and it works most of the time.

Hardermods Like I said, we use the cruisecontrolstore ones on cars at the shop, no Wranglers, but lots of other and have not had any issues with them.

Ran into one minor problem on an install once, call their service dept and they are real nice, walked me right through the problem.
