Yea I got some heavier smoke when I revved it up a little bit also.. I'll try putting some in the throttle body next time and see how that works.

Replaced injectors with some bosch style 4-hole. Idle is much smoother, but it starts harder. Sounds like it's drowning. PM me with suggestions of what I might do to help it start quicker if you have them please.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

I was toying around with that exact set, before buying a new stock system. Within the past few days I've heard a few horror stories about IRO on the boards I'm a member of. Parts arriving unassembled, no instructions, complete wrong setups...

yeah its funny, i go there in person since i know all the guys there, a couple of them outside of IRO and i wheel with them all the time too. i picked up my 2.5" exhaust and the extension pipe they cut me was 2" pipe lol. i know they are in the middle or re-organizing the new shop and they are all swamped but still kind of sucked since i had to drive to the parts store with no exhaust at all and got pulled over lol.

in other news, i may have scored a set of 31" super swampers brand new for cheap. i was going to go with some all terrains but cant argue with cheap haha

some issues got a set of adj front upper ca instead of adj rear lower ca when i bought my lift but they corrected that right away and this steering i ordered 3 weeks ago then on the second week i called and upgraded to the 5/8 and they said they would take care of it so a few days later i sent them an email asking why no CC had not bin charged and if the 5/8upgrade went through she said yup and that it was sending out today (wenesday) got it today saturday 1/2. i mean it till solid no junk here but i was figuring if im going out for a 370$ steering why not go all out for 20$ more



i tryed 2 stock steering set up both took a **** on me but on a side note i do have 2 brand new (like 20miles on them) MOOG tie rod ends for the V8 tierod and draglink if anyone is interested in them i paid 90$ for both make pm me an offer and i can send them out to you

I fully expect the stock steering to take a **** on me again, but I'm hoping this lasts me until I deploy again in late 2012. If it does then I can go tons, and never worry about this crap again...
