Joey- i replaced my cable in about 20 minutes. Its just about the easyest thing you can do. You need to be careful about the metal/hard plastic tube that is on the end of the cable at the carb. If you go bending the cable way to much this thing will crack and could cause you problems. Other than that just take a pliers and pinch together the two pieces of plastic that act as a "barb". There will be one in the firewall (kinda hard to get to) and one about 6-8" away from your carb. good luck.

Sold the CJ... Cant wait for the next time around!
