I completed this install myself this past friday on my GF's 2010 JK and wanted to share a couple thoughts I had during the process.
Firstly, many thanks to the OP for this write-up. The install by itself is super-straight-forward, but this how-to was still a great help.
1. In retrospect, I believe that one can insert the hood switch wire into the bottom of the 'D' or 'center' connector without ever removing it from the bottom of the relay/fuse box. After removing the bottom cap and rubber seal as described, simply grip the new wire with needle nose pliers and slide it into its designated slot until it clicks in place. Done.
2. I initially had some difficulty finding the phillips head screw which holds the wiper stalk onto the steering column. FYI: This screw is painted black, unlike most of the others which are silver, and if you are sitting in the driver seat (as I was) it's almost invisible. I ended up having to go around to the passenger side of the jeep with a flashlight, shining it on the steering column before I found that darn screw.
3. Probably most importantly, after installing the kit one needs to drive to the dealership for programming. The OP said to hold the old WCM near the key for 3 seconds while engaging the jeep's ignition. This did not work for me and the jeep would stall out after 3 seconds (as it's supposed to).
I (eventually) figured out that the key still needed to go through the ring of the old WCM. Basically I positioned the ring of the old WCM over the ignition and threaded the key through it, and then started the jeep. This was the only way the jeep would stay running. I see the OP installed on an 09, and this may be a new step necessary with the 2010, but for the 5 minutes it took to figure that out, it had me a little concerned.
Otherwise, the install went off without a hitch, and I hope these additional tips help anyone else planning to do this super-easy mod!
Oh, and FWIW, I got the kit on ebay for $190 shipped and paid the second dealer $65 for the programming and key cutting. (The first dealer I called quoted me $120!!! I'm glad I didn't settle and made that second call!)
Anyway, I figure $255 all-in for the OEM remote start is a pretty reasonable price. At least much better than having the dealer do it all and paying them $500+!
