I did the heater core replacement with a friend of mine in my driveway. I got the heater core replacement from my local dealer, I believe it was about $90 CAD? cant remember exactly.
One thing I can recomend doing which made this way easier is to not pull the entire dash off. It's kinda hard to explain but think of the WK dash as 2 pieces, (drivers side, pass side) those two sides are connected by very thin tabs of plastic behind the center stack. So rather than pulling the whole drivers side off, I simply cut the tab. It's literally about 1/4" x 1/4". It doesn't affect how the dash is attached to the vehicle. It saved me hours of time. But you'll see for yourself when you get the center stack out and make your own decision. The whole process took about 3 hours or so.
Also, when I was in there I replaced my blend door actuators. My jeep at the time would only blow hot or cold, no in between.
Hope that helps! Good luck!
