I replaced my heater core a few months ago and it wasn't too awful bad.The biggest pain for me was getting to the nuts on the firewall behind the engine,since you have a 2.5 it might not be as tight for you though.Takes a little wigglin to get the box out from under the dash too.

Be careful when you are taking off the small plastic clips that attach the cables to vents that they operate. I broke all of them taking it off when I did mine and now my vents dont work correctly. Not a huge deal but kinda annoying.

It's not like replacing a heavy transmission, it is very light, the box, just an annoying job do to the awkwardness and reaching under the dash, etc. I have some pictures of my experience, it's not a big deal, just be patient with it as you can. Easy on the cable clips, try not to break them if you can help it. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/h...cement-870988/
