I would advise against adjusting your new steering gear, especially if new.

If everything is tight, how is your alignment? That's the issue that's causing mine.

Have you figured out what you going to replace her with yet?

If you're not fixing it, you're not driving a Jeep.

Nice..... but when I have had throttle bodies done in the past (not on a Jeep admittedly) they have always come back with a knife egde on the throttle blade and the screws that hold it to the bar smoothed right down.....looks like there is still a bit of room for improvement there......just my 2 pence worth and i'm sure it will still add some extra go!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

I agree, that would have been better, but I'm not looking for every ounce of power. I just wanted the restriction below the plate removed, plus it only cost $60 for everything. This should complement the ported head and intake as well as the stage 1 cam and 4 hole injectors nicely.

I still can't figure out why jeep would choke them after the throttle plate.

Probably to try and get a venturi effect....in other words to accelarate the air.

Well I've had my WJ for a little over a year now and it's just starting to overheat. Happens when the ac is on. Is this a common problem with the dubs?

Yeah, shipping it wouldnt be a problem,
but thx to our genuis goverment, the import tax is higher than a used 04HO around here,
due to engine size and emisson, so thats kills the deal, thx anyway.
Started to think about finding a Nice one with broken engine, Get That out, before shipping to save import tax, but again our genuis goverment rules, i can only import that as a parts car That never can be registred, if not all taxes up again.

If i Get lucky finding a nice 00 V8 with broken engine Localy, i can use my old engine and make a Good deal out of That.
