RPM Revving issue

My 99 Wrangler 4.0 started having RPM issues about a month ago. Sporadically the RMP's jump way up for a while then go back down to normal idle RPM. It happens when sitting at a light in drive and also if it is in park, just idling. It often revs way up when i put it in park after stopping. Thoughts?

How old is your battery? I had a somewhat similar issue once and my battery was going bad. It could be a vacuum leak as well. Have you replaced the exhaust manifold or anything lately?

When did you last clean your throttle body and IAC?

A vacuum leak is often responsible for high rpms, has anyone worked on or around the intake manifold lately?
