Don't forget a fuel filter, also buy yourself a can of seafoam and suck a third of the can through your brake booster vacuum line and dump the rest in the gas, that'll remove any carbon buildup in the cylinders or injectors.

Don't forget the air filter.

You may want to flush the radiator as well.

sumitt racing has an accel kit that was about 50 bucks for my 4.0 six should be adequate for a stock engine. you dont need super hi perf wires unless you use super hi output ignition system. simply overkill.

Don't worry about the fuel filter, it's in the tank and is cleaned every time you fill your tank up to the top. Jeep went to this set up in 96 possibly mid 96, the earlier have only an inline filter, (which I prefer).

Looks like you got the rest covered already.

tune up

well i spoke with kolak yesterday and im considering his ignition upgrade...just cant determine if I should spend the $ (260) for it or just go with some decent wires, brass cap and rotor and autolite plugs for less than $100 bucks...this would free up some $ for the mopar performance ecu i want....does anyone think it would make a big difference to go with the better wires and msd coil or not...?

By the way Kolak is a great guy, very informative, and helpful....
