well i have'nt tried it but it looks good...every one of the parts are good quality...id just check out like summit or something and see how much all those parts would be if you just ordered them yourself...and besides summit sometimes has free on shiping on things that total over so much money...but im notto sur how much thatll be because i just drive up to the summit store...

I wouldn't go with it. The K&N is crap and the TB spacer is a loud whistle. Not much you can do to the 4.0 to make it faster/better mpg. But I would go with a better exhaust and the TB. Just my $.02 though.

Bored throttle body is good, I am rocking a cherrybomb pro, I like it, but the exhaust tube rustys sells is shameful at best fitments wise. K&N is no good for dusty environments, might as well get a nicer drop in filter for the stock box. TB spacer is a waste of money.

So I wouldn't get the package. I would get a good bored TB from www.jeepersandcreepers.com or www.strokedjeep.com, and get a cherrybomb or other muffler and have an exhaust shop bend you tailpipe.. Then get a higher quality filter (if you want) for the stock air-box.

Most of the $$ from that kit is probably for the throttle body. From stroked jeep you get a core charge back so its only $90.00 in the end. Or you can get a brand new 62mm body from JandC for 175.
