Throttle Body Condition

Hey guys i was taking a look the throttle body and i'm not sure if its clean or the carbon build up is just further down the line. the jeep has 157,000 miles and i was expecting to find it in bad condition. here are some pics before i used the throttle body cleaner. is there something i'm missing or does this not need cleaning ?

Looks to be fairly clean, just a bit of carbon buildup below the throttle plate. Couldn't hurt to clean up all the carbon you can reach, and be sure to clean out the idle air passage as well (the rectangular hole above the throttle plate).

Make absolutely certain the throttle body cleaner you use says it's sensor safe.
