If it's the 4.0 you might as well get the APN header since you've gotta swap it out anyhow.

If you can get your hands on a 99+ 4.0 intake manifold swap that too since you've gotta take it off to get at the exhaust anyhow.

Did you have any problems with the air intake temperature sensor wire being too short?

By that do you mean you try to go really fast but it barely goes slow?

Good find.
Go ahead and plan on spending $249 on a new PCM. Budget for it. You can thank me later.
