Adding remote start to 2012 Jeep Liberty

I am considering adding a remote start option for my 2012 Jeep Liberty. I will be moving to Alaska...from Arizona and would like to be able to get the car warmed up above freezing before getting inside. Can this be done as a DIY project for someone who has not messed with electrical before? I've seen some remote start kits but most say that it needs to be programmed from a dealer. I don't think there is a Jeep dealer where I am going to.

Any advice or recommendations of kits or how-to's would be appreciated.

Thanks!

As an update, I made it though that 2nd half of winter last year by just hoping outside and starting my car 15 minutes before leaving. In anticipation of this future winter I purchased the below linked remote start kit and couldn't be happier. The hardest part of the install was removing the bottom half of the steering column to access the wiring. After that it was a true "plug and play" install. I have yet to fully test the long range remote but it has easily worked from the comfort of my house or office to where I park the Liberty. The only problem I have is that I have yet to train myself to put the heater back to full heat before I get out of the car. More often than not I have lowered the temperature to a near cool by the time I get home. For the price and ease of install I'd definitely recommend this product.

Hi! I have a Jeep Liberty 2011 2.8 CRD Automatic. Do you think this product works with diesel Jeep Liberty? Thank you for any insights

I know this is a bit late, but one of my buddy's mothers just bought a 14 wrangler and he was doing research in adding a remote start to it as well. It turns out there is also a plug and play kit from chrysler that attaches in series to the ignition under the steering wheel and thats the whole install...

Just some options for people that may want to keep it with factory parts.

Im assuming there is a kit for your jeep as well, but I cant imagine the same one would work as you would need a delay for the glow plugs before cranking immediately. I would like to think its available though as the 2008 Jeep Grand diesels had an auto start...
