Default Difficulty and cost on installing cruise control

An associate at work has a 2005 base PTC with 5 speed. He bought it to tow behind RV. But with the price of fuel the RV is staying parked. So he wants to travel with the PTC... but his wife says "it doesn't have cruise control". So the question is how difficult is it to install this accessory or is it better left to a shop/dealer? And what can he expect for cost to install? The cost of the part alone is about $215 from local dealer.

Ask around at different auto-accessory places about price plus installation. We bought a Suzuki Forenza awhile back and it was $700 installed but that was power locks and alarm with keyfob and the cruise control. Don't remember the separate prices for each.

I did an install on mine a couple of weeks ago. I purchased mine from a dealer on Ebay wanting to get rid of their stock. I purchased mine for around $176 and I think it was $200 w/ shipping.

My 2005 convertible had the wiring in place. The most difficult part was getting the airbag released from the steering wheel and then pulling the steering wheel itself (necessary to install the new clock spring). The chrysler instructions were straight forward and I did the entire installation in a little over three hours.

check with a stereo shop, they can usually install an afterproduct cruise control for a good price.
06 Touring Edition NA/Auto. Airaid intake, Magnaflow Stainless cat-back exhaust, Taylor Thundervolt plug wires, rear lowered 1.75" with H&R Springs.
Yep, buying parts I cant afford with money I dont have to impress people I dont like anyways.
