Was having intermittent stalling problems, only when my foot was off the gas. On Sunday I took off the throttle body and cleaned it, with special attention to the IAC and surrounding area.

Two days without stalling so far. I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

well, today i had 2 people come up to me and ask about the zj.

dude#1 at gas pump: what kinda lift is that? who did it? how much? CAN YOU DO IT FOR ME? etc, etc, etc....

Dude#2 at carwash: What year is it? how much lift is that? and then he just walks away. I know he was jealous cause he was washing a stock ZJ in the bay next to where i was.

Ive had people look, stare, etc.. but never stop and just talk about ZJ's.

That guy came up and said 35's? And I said nah not yet, 33's. And then he asked what suspension and how it does and stuff.

Then fired it up and watched his expression in the mirror as I drove off with a 5.9 with an open cat haha

A lifted but smaller 4 runner parked next to my old ZJ at the bowling alley and I set the alarm off because I didn't have a muffler at the time. I had headers and a high flow cat than a pipe dumping past the gas tank. I almost got into it with one of them because he kept saying I kicked the yota to set off the alarm.
