I tried AllComputerResources and CarComputerExhhange, and BOTH were an epic fail. After not being either "flashed" correctly or simply being a faulty unit, both companies had to send out a replacement for the replacement, and all four total units failed. Kolak set me up with a factory replacement and it worked on the first try. Kolaks pcm was about $200 more, but worth it for a working jeep.

i have a computerexchange in mine. had it for 2 years with no problems. Tho, I did have to send back the first one. The bolt for the harness pulled right out of the board when I was installing it.

Unfortunately, I was in Afghanistan when all the pcm troubles were happening, but my wife was coordinating with a local repair shop in Phoenix and they confirmed the poor results. It seems hit and miss at best with the non-OE replacements
