Also, when I took her to the dealership a few months back for the Mopar coolant, the tech said my injectors looked gummed up pretty bad. I have noticed the idle is a little more unstable since I bought it (at 91k miles, now at 99k). Plus, after replacing the TPS, IAC, and cleaning the throttle body the new injectors could solve my 400 rpm idle at stop lights. Also might give me a few more MPG . Anyone know of high performance injectors for the 4.7HO? I know the factory one are pretty damn good, but just curious. I'll take care of this after Christmas once I have some money to spend.

Well now that the New Year is here, so are some parts for the WJ! She now has new injectors and the clock spring I got from a parts WJ with 28,000 miles. Still has a low idle at stop lights (when not tuned via Superchips) so I may check out the IAC valve at some point. However, it's nice to turn the wheel without any clicking.

Have the Bilsteins and will hopefully get them on before the next semester starts. May also go for the front window tints.

Decided to hold off on the Upcountry springs and isolators since the funds aren't available. It's something that can wait and doesn't hamper the performance/driveability of the Jeep. Also need new tires soon. That will be the next big ticket item for the Jeep.

Well it's coming up on a year of ownership for this Jeep and very close to 10,000 miles...have already put $2556.79 into it including the recent repairs. Hopefully she'll be happy for a long time to come.

Bilstein Shock Upgrade

Finally got around to installing the Bilstein shocks! Night and day difference in the ride and handling characteristics. Jeep feels so much more controlled over bumps

hmm... I forgot the rear Bilstein HDs have the sleeve and not the boot. You did well by mounting them sleeve upwards.

heh well I told you to mount them boot down... with the sleeve mounting up is smarter. Well done.
