with0:00:15.749,0:00:19.740that Mopar pricing this is going to be a0:00:17.910,0:00:21.450part that is a three out of three0:00:19.740,0:00:22.890wrenches for the installation you do0:00:21.450,0:00:24.120have to pull the center console out of0:00:22.890,0:00:26.070the Jeep there is going to be quite a0:00:24.120,0:00:28.530bit of disassembly in order to get into0:00:26.070,0:00:30.270this piece and swap it out but we will0:00:28.530,0:00:31.710show you how to do that in just a second0:00:30.270,0:00:33.870so if you are looking to replace your0:00:31.710,0:00:35.790factory transfer case shift cable you0:00:33.870,0:00:38.010can of course go to a dealership you can0:00:35.790,0:00:39.180order one from Mopar and what you're0:00:38.010,0:00:41.130going to get out of the box is0:00:39.180,0:00:42.420essentially the same thing that I have0:00:41.130,0:00:44.370in front of me here but it's just gonna0:00:42.420,0:00:46.560be a little bit more expensive so if0:00:44.370,0:00:50.130you're looking for something that is om0:00:46.560,0:00:52.230style it is going to look function

for0:00:56.100,0:01:00.149you this is going to be right around 1200:00:58.770,0:01:01.410dollars so like I said a little less0:01:00.149,0:01:03.360expensive than going directly to a0:01:01.410,0:01:05.040dealership or pretty much the same piece0:01:03.360,0:01:06.540and it is going to be a little bit of an0:01:05.040,0:01:08.430involved installation but we'll show
