After Market Cruise Control Kit???

My commute is a lot longer now and so I am considering an after market cruise control kit. Truck is stock, no frills.

Any install one of these on their truck?
How do you like it?
Where did you buy it?
Who installed it? a regular car alarm guy or special place?

Thanks...

usually the regular car alarm guy can install one, or if you feel brave Amazon.com: Audiovox Ultracruise II 250-1316 Electronic Cruise Speed Control Kit: Automotive: Reviews, Prices & more

You have to buy a switch and vac canister for it to

Rostra had some OE conversions and aftermarket kits. I would also look at the kits where you affix a magnet to the driveshaft and use a hall sensor pickup to maintain the speed.
