    Rostra Cruise Control Install January 2014

    I installed a Rostra Electronic cruise control on my 2013 over the holidays. I haven’t seen a posting on this recently. I have installed 4 or 5 Audiovox vacuum operated cruise controls in the past and this was still challenging. The Rostra was actually simpler once the connections were located...
