Running better cold is a big clue. The system goes closed loop when it warms up and starts using the O2 sensor to set air fuel. Check the O2 sensor and the exhaust manifold for cracks especially around the collector tubes and for loose or bolts or gasket leaks. You can experiment and disconnect the O2 sensor and it will run in a default mode for the calibration and see if it makes a difference. The other thing we have that is different then the others is the egr. It is the pipe setup under the manifold going to the exhaust. Look for any leaks on the pipe.

Did you adjust the tps when you installed it? It's not plug and play like later jeep models

tps, isa, wot, and fuel psr. all must adjusted when replaced. You need a meter and the service manual.
