Aftermarket cruise control

I'm new to this forum and also new to Jeep. I just bought a Wrangler X. It had most of the options I was looking for except I would have liked to have cruise control to get to the mountains. Has anyone installed aftermarket cruise? Recommendations?

I installed it on my YJ. I bought a universal, cheap $99 one that works fine. Relitively easy to install. It can be divided into 3 parts: Wiring, vacuum hose connections, and the throtte cable.
Simply spice into the ign. wire, the VVS wire (or is it VSS? either way). Then run the wiring harness up into cab, and mount is accordingly.
Then tap into a vacuum hose. (I chose the PCV hose.
Then hook up to the throttle cable using one of the many different kinds of connections. Use common sense to chose the one that seems to make the most sense.

I installed one too. I paid $100. installed similar the last post. I have a 4.0, and it stays pinned on your set speed. It would take quite a hill to make it slow down just 1 mph. 2.5 may vary a little more on hills. I would reccomend it if you drive on the highway much. I got a big jump in fuel economy when I use it on the highway.

Yeah, it does slow on hills, even more with the 31's now. ALso you need a canister for another $10 that the vacuum runs through before going to the servo unit if you have a 2.5
