Am I the only one who would rather get the set made for 4.0s from bosche on eBay, then waste time at a junkyard on a used set?? Sorry but these are rebuilt, and have a warranty. They'll get my money rather then a junkyard. Thoughts? They are all over eBay, and bosche has a video even to show testing, atomization increase, and explains warranty.

How much are the ones on Ebay? Cause there ones at the junkyard are $5 a piece. Dont know bout you but my money tree was stripped bare a few years back. Also how much extra are you paying for a warranty? And to top it off Bosch is not the best brand in the world.

It's $80 for the set. You don't pay for the warranty, it's included, and I don't live close to a junkyard, closest one is 40 miles away, plus I'd rather have a "new" product then a questionable used part. Cosmetic things are good for junkyard findings, but when it comes to my engine, I'll buy new or refurbished. With driving both ways, and paying for the injectors, it'd be even priced as the refurbished ones on eBay anyways.

That's fine and dandy. Two things one you get what you pay for, and two I haven't heard anything good about Bosch in a long time. I won't use the spark plugs from past experiences. Just my two cents.

Actually, most people who buy them from the jy rebuild the injectors themselves. Not everyone is bright enough to just throw a jy injector onto their engine, clogged filter, cracked o-rings and all.

So wouldn't that make even more sense to just get them already done and ready?? Seems like a lot of time wasted for the same amount of money.

I know they make a hell of a good wiper blade! Maybe the injectors are ok..

I paid $28 for all 8 of my injectors, plus $15 for the rebuild kit. It takes about 20 minutes to R&R the filter baskets and the o-rings.

If you really wanted to 'do it right' you could have them sonic cleaned at a local injector shop, which I was quoted $15 for. Most people here though will soak them overnight in carb cleaner or Seafoam.

There's no doubt that its much more convenient to buy rebuilt ones ready to go, but if you're willing to invest some time, you can save a pretty good amount of money doing it yourself.

I had the same thought. I bought mine on ebay. I didnt feel like picking them out at a JY. Just paid the 140 for the peace of mind and warranty and knowing theyre flowmatched.

it's become difficult to find the Bosch 0280155703 in the junk yards, will the 0280155740 or the 0280155741 work in place .

Once you can accept the universe as being something expanding into an infinite nothing which is something, wearing stripes with plaid is easy

740s may be the same as 703s for the flow rate, but they're physically too small to work.

So far after doing the swap I have noticed that the engine idles smother, it has a little bit better off the line acceleration and better passing acceleration. It’s not that it runs like it has a supercharger on it but it does run better than before. I haven’t had them in long enough see any improvements in gas millage. I would do this swap again if I had another jeep to use them on.
