62mm throttle bodys

Just purchased a 62mm throttle body from jeepersandcreepers.com and was wondering if anyone else has had any experience with them??? 179 us dollars shipped. The guy was very polite and did let me know the throttle body spacer was a waste of money.... My jeep is a wrangler 4.0 5 speed 1997

Let's see if I follow this correctly. You bought the throttle body after the seller told you it was a waste of money?

He was correct. It is a waste of money for a stock 4.0L engine.

Kudos to the guy at jeepersandcreepers for his honesty.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

He said the throttle body spacer was a waste of money, not the throttle body.

I work on Mopars

You're right. I guess I need to revise my previous comment.

50% kudos to the guy at jeepersandcreepers for his honesty. He should have told the OP that the throttle body is also a waste of money on a stock 4.0L.

Unless you increase the air flow through the intake and exhaust, the large bore throttle body probably won't be too beneficial. This would include larger volume air intake, and better flowing exhaust (i.e. Borla/Banks header, hi-flow cat/muffler, larger exhaust pipe). This is a lot money per pony (hp) gained. You may feel a little better throttle response? Also, not too sure how a mopar OBDII puter handles such changes. Perhaps someone on here has experience with it. The large bore TB with a cold air intake does sound a bit cooler when you go WOT. That is if it doesn't whistle on you.

The only benefit of the throttle body spacer, for me anyway, was better clearance/access to TB sensors and better alignment with the throttle and tranny "kick down" cables. But my set up is pretty far away from stock. Otherwise, as per above, a waste of money.

Not trying to be a Debbie Downer. It may help in the higher rpm ranges.

Good Luck
