Just make sure you disconnect both terminals from the battery and don't work on it for at least 20 minutes. Use a two jaw puller (I bought a three jaw that converted to a two jaw from AutoZone). I had the correct socket. It was actually pretty easy. I printed the directions and I could probably do it without instructions, now. Too bad it didn't make my air bag light go off. I read someone's post that said a TSB mentions changing the Airbag Control Module to a 2004 model. If so, what is the number of the TSB?

You should think about making some more of those! I'm sure there would be quite a few of us who would gladly buy them from you.

A couple of pages back, GCJEEPING mentions that the hitch plug is the same as that on a dodge truck. You might ask him. I couldn't tell you about the hitch, but I do know that the Chrysler cars and Dodge trucks have the same EVICS and head units.

Keep in mind the nut that holds the steering wheel onto the shaft is a one-time-use Nylock nut. When you remove it, you need to replace it with a new one.

Oil changed with Mobil One full synthetic. Greased it. My new front skid plate does make it a pain to get to the filter, oh well.

Installed today:





wiring harness install & routing was a breeze. The hardest part was removing the d@*n plastic fascia rivets which I ended up just cutting and using replacement universal trim/panel retainers.

I also tried to save a whole $8.00 by ordering the bezel on-line vs. the dealership. Ordered last Saturday and currents status is awaiting pickup at the vendor by UPS. Said screw waiting, cut the bumper and installed anyway.

Did you have to install the whole harness from the left rear corner down? If so, did you go with the dealership, online, or junk yard?

The hitch was from a local JY and included the wiring harness. I followed the instructions and wired into the OEM plug already installed in the L/R corner of the Jeep.

I'm losing patience as well. Anyone know if the bezel from a laredo will fit a limited flush? I've heard otherwise, but may just have to go back to the JY and pick one up.

Also, is that a class IV hitch? The one I grabbed does not have the extra bracket on the bottom.

the one I got at the JY and installed didn't have that bracket either. I don't recall seeing anything about it in the install instructions either... what is it?

Mine looked basically like that, but had both brackets on, not just the one.
