I would have liked to have done the diy jy swap out ones and if I had a V8 probably would have. The jy is far away but used injectors are $8 from the pick-n-pull where I've seen others buying them for $6. Believe the injector rebuild kit w/screens and new o-rings is less than $20.

Haven't really noticed any improvement in mpg with 703's and if anything may have lost 1-2mpg. Believe this may be because they're injecting a little more fuel since my last ones may have been clogged or leaking. Have noticed a slight improvement in accelerating where my 4.0 doesn't bog down as bad as it used to. I'm sure my fairly new Bosch fuel pump assembly helps with this too.

I bought the same injectors from the same eBay user, no complaints here.

Sweet, I will have to order these! I didn't search long but i found some through auto parts stores around $120 a piece, and decided that i would just find some at a JY.

Here's the same 33-tooth speedo gear (#52067633) for $65.38 from mopar-wholesale.com. But not sure how much shipping is and others say you may want to include any other Mopar parts you need w/1 order where shipping costs may not increase.

I know, $65.38 also seems high for that little speedo gear.

Note: link/site clears the part/price on exiting so you have to enter year, model, 52067633 again.

if you can find some out of a junk yard you would be better off, the zj stock injectors are crap. there is a list of compatable injectors, you can buy new but i priced it around $500-$1000 online. Some claim $20 a piece from junk yard(need one for each cylinder).

check out the link for the write up. I have yet to do this but plan on it.

Also does anyone know if valero gas is bad quality gas?
back to topic, if you use lucas that much you are prob just wasting your money. It will keep your injectors as clean as it can but you could be getting an extra 1-2 gallons of gas for the price of a bottle of lucas. I use it about every 4 or 5 fillups which would be saving you the equivalent of an entire tank of gas. The people at auto zone always try to sell me the crap and suggest adding it every time you change your oil.

I have thought about using seafoam but have chicken'd out every time. it can foul sensors and could end up being a major hassle. Just make sure to follow instructions and change the oil shortly after adding it.

there is a lot of bad reviews about valero gas but that can vary, some states dont test gas quality, most do and have stickers on the pumps. just avoid anything with ethenol, over time can cause problems. not to mention burns faster then gas so worse mpg.

I personally use Shell because they are ethenol free(and they are the only gas station i pass on the way to/from work.)

EDIT: I take the Shell statement back, the two in my town are ethenol free but not all are.
