Difficulty To Install Cruise On Non-Cruise Jeep?

Well, need less to say i have had to do alot of highway driving with my jeep lately and not having cruise is starting to bug me... How hard would it be to install a OEM or aftermarket cruise system on my 05?

You may or may not be pre-wired.... if you are pre-wired, it is just plug and play. If not, you have to wire in the harness that comes with the kit. You can purchase it off www.jeepsareus.com. If you are careful and take your time, you can do it in an afternoon. Comes with detailed instructions.. but the price recently went up because the TJ is no longer in production.

the OEM kit from Jeep is a breeze! And only a little over $200. Mine took me 30minutes and that included opening the box and cleaning up.

Yeah, what he said... I was pre-wired. Installing the new harness will add from 1-3 hours depending on your level of electrical experience etc...

There will be a large plug next to the vacuum canister on (your) driver's side fender. Even if you're not wired, it's plug and play (just more time consuming).

Install should be basically the same. The kit might be a different part number.

I was wondering about this too, I don't think cruise control was even available on the 97 models.

Hmm... well then I suppose you will have to see if Jeep makes a kit for it or not.

This is from an 05 Rubicon with the 4.0. The pigtail you see is for the cruise control and located on the drivers side fender.

I did the very kit from jeepsrus.. Mine wasn't pre-wired so the install was like 4 hrs.. You will have to unplug the grey connector on you're computer on the ps firewall and insert 5 new wires I think.. Been like 3.5 years since i did mine! Be carefull on that step and take you're time on the insertion of the wires and make sure they are seated where they need to be, and make sure the lightblue locking tab has them in place firmly enough.. Couple of the wires did that to me after 5mos of having it.. My mistake, and corrected, haven't had anymore problems!!! Pm me if you have any more Q's..
