Rostra Cruise control

My 2001 XJ sport did not come with factory cruise control. Rostra makes a universal cruise control but they have been hard to find in stock. Redline now has them and I ordered one to install. Has anyone installed one of these and if so how have they worked out for you?

Re: Rostra Cruise control

If you jeep didn't come with factory cruise control, all you need to do to add it is to install the cruise control servo, (the hose and plug are already in place) and install the buttons in the steering wheel with the proper clock spring, plus if you grab the parts yourself from the junkyard you're looking at less than half the cost of the Rostra kit and it will work like the factory intended.

Re: Rostra Cruise control

sidewaysstarion is right. Installing a factory cruise control set up in an '01 that did not come with it is a piece of cake. Just need to find the parts. Did it to my '00. You will need the switches in the steering wheel from a '99 to '01. Something about ohms making it so '97 and '98 won't work. As far as I know everything else can come from a '97 to '01. You will need a steering wheel puller. You can rent that from an auto parts store. So you will need the switches, clock spring, and short harness out of the steering wheel. Make sure the wheels are straight forward before you remove the steering wheel to get at the clock spring. Do not play with or spin the clock spring around . The actuator will come with the cable for the throttle bottle. The plug for the actuator is already there by the battery. Don't forget to grab the bracket and bolts for the actuator. There will be a T in the vacuum line that you will just hook up the actuator too.
