Wj Wrong TPS? + [pics]

Hello all

2003 WJ GC Overland 4.7HO

I purchased a Mopar TPS from a Dodge power seller on ebay. I tried to install the new part and although it would screw in, the wire harness will NOT fit.

The TPS is advertised to fit a 02-06 GC

Can you please tell me if my wire harness has being changed by the previous owner or the new mopar part is actually incorrect.

I contacted the seller and was told I've got the right part

The pic below will show new TPS (black) on the left and my current TPS on right (grey)

The other pic is of the wire harness.

If anyone can look at their wire harness and let me know if it's the same as mine pictured above that would be great.

.
maybe mention to them that the Grand Cherokee underwent a design change b/t the 2004 and 2005 model years... It would make more sense for the part to fit 1999-2004 grand cherokees

It doesn't fit my 03 GC.

And dealing with the seller is not fun. I've being called inconsiderate and wrong. I think they don't really care because they have a "no questions asked" return policy. Maybe they make a few mistakes. Sending it back to USA (from Australia) will add to the cost V refund.
