I took a chance and bought the $18 Homelink transmitter module (from a different Jeep model) off of ebay. Was a real brain teaser to install....however it looks and works very good. You do need good mechanical and electrical skills. Here is a few comments to help anyone that decides to try.
1. The overhead console pries down first from the side toward the back of the truck. Take it easy or you will break off the front clips.
2. The module I bought had to have several tab and circuit board cut off modifications to its assembly case to get it into the mounting area. Don't drill any holes in the console until you are absolutely sure where your module buttons end up. I decided to turn the programming light/little house upside down for best fit.
3. The larger red and black wires in the existing wire harness are the positive and negative connections respectively to the existing dome light assembly. Easier to pigtail the Homelink power connections to the harness rather than open the light assembly module.
4. I had to extend the buttons with some glued on 1/16" plastic caps to make up for the thicker plastic in the console so they would operate the switches correctly.
