Repaired the cruise control, which has never worked for me (had the ZJ 2 years now) and never worked for the PO (had it 5 years).

The servo was full of sand () and the cable had rusted. Swapped in one from an eBay Jeep breaker which was meant to fit the 93, and discovered that it was actually from a 97 and had blade pins in the connector rather than round ones. Opened both servos up and found that the electronics were identical apart from the shape of the connector, so desoldered both connector boards and swapped the 93 board onto the 97 electronics. Works like a charm

Yea. I picked it up from elite chassis worx. Coil overs are on the way. Should get after the engine swap this week, then back to elite to finish the cage.

how does it work if you have auto trans, do aftermarket shift knobs have a push button like the original does?
