Cam Shaft Position Sensor Question

Alright, I need to know how difficult it is to replace one of these. I just ordered the part on-line. The dealer told me the part costs $132. I found the same part for $32 on-line. So I thought I would give it a shot. Worst case senario, I take the part to a mechanic. Oh, I am trying to install this on a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, its the 4.7 v8.
Any help is appreciated!

Shouldn't be too bad, I've never done one on a 4.7 and I'm home from work already but on Monday I can see what the book gives to change it and that should give some idea how difficult it is.

Should not be hard, but then again you never know. Did a code till you about the sensor being bad?

Yeah, sort of. The Check Engine Light came on, so I had a diagnostic run and that's what came back. Also was told that there is a CPS Crank Position Sensor that may be part of the problem, but won't know until the Camshaft position has been replaced. So, I think about all the shiat I do on my motorcycle and think, I don't really feel like paying someone $90 an hour, so I'll give it a try frist, hopefully it isn't all that hard to reach in the motor or to set/calibrate after installed. PLUG AND PRAY baby.
