It will.

If Chrysler hasn't changed it, the cruise will not work under 35mph.

I use mine at 25...I think it doesn't work below 25.

The manual does say though:

When engaged, this device takes over the accelerator
operation at speeds greater than 35 mph (56 km/h).

Airbag removal tool

I just completed installing the cruise control option using the parts as above.

Notes:
  • Take an old screw driver and bend it just past 90 degrees as shown in attached picture. Mine broke, so i re-bent it and ground a flat tip with the angle grinder. Heat will help.
  • Use a mirror and flashlight to look into the opening on the bottom back of the steering wheel. You will be able to see the wire loop you are trying to release.
  • Park the jeep with the wheel straight and level before you disconnect the battery. This makes things more intuitive when putting the wheel back on.
  • Release the loop at the 6 o'clock position first... it is the easiest one. With the bent screwdriver, the loops are quite easy to release. As you release the loops, dont let the airbag fall off and damage the connections.
  • I just cut a slot in the plastic trim piece instead of buying a new trim piece. Saves $8 or so. You need about 1/8" (3mm) clearance around the control shaft so the control can move up, down and toward the driver without binding on the plastic trim piece.
  • Control and wiring harness cost just over $100Cdn from dealer parts desk with new owners 10% discount.
  • After you remove the steering wheel bolt, look carefully at the 12 o'clock position at the spline... there is an arrow on the steering wheel center casting and a punched dot on the steering column shaft.. makes things easy to line up again.
  • Cruise will engage at 40kph(25mph) or greater on my 2010 model.
  • cruise control lever: Mopar 4671929AB list $33.15Cdn
  • horn switch harness: Mopar 68003477AA list $75.40Cdn
  • wheel cover trim: Mopar 1GA31XDVAA list $ 7.45Cdn Not needed, check color

How do I verify that the engine needed components are there before doing this? Did all the engines come preinstalled and just needed this to complete it? The ECM alrdy programmed too?

The new wranglers are already fly by wire. (you will not need under hood parts like the old throttle servos). The ECM seems to be quite happy without any programming. In my 2010, the throttle control arm plugged in and worked.
cheers
ps, in the post a couple of items up, the picture of the bent screwdriver seems to have been deleted.... any old flat blade driver with the shaft bent at 90 degrees should work... once you find the wire loops to release, the tool required should be obvious.
