Do you have a carburator?! Those look like Rough Country Springs, could be anything though.

Yeah it's a 2.5L 4 cylinder. Its a carburated, not fuel injected, and it's a 5 speed manual. I'd like to put a new carb system in it, if anyone can suggest a fairly decent priced one, please let me know Here's a pic of the whole jeep

That looks like a 4" lift and 33s to me. I did not see a carb on there. Does you Jeep have problems starting up or stalling? If not, you really have no need to replace the carb, if you have one. You should take off that air intake filter and take a pic of what's under it.

Or maybe the tires could be 31s.

NAPA, Advance Auto, most auto parts stores. Looks like something pretty basic that most stores would hold. Go in and tell them the year, model you have and that you need new air intake hose. They'll figure out what you need.

Ok sweet will do, thanks CB-
So about the carb. It seems people here are saying that I dont have a carb...should I add one? I have no problems starting and it doesn't stall on me. I just pupmp the gas pedal as I turn it over and she fires up. So would a carb help the engine perform better? or is it something I shouldnt even both with?

no, you have an old form of fuel injection called throttle body injection. its basically a carb with a fuel injector on top. it works very well. keep it

nice looking jeep

I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.
