Can't say I noticed any difference driving.

I will know tomorrow morning how much the whistling has diminished.

I will say that the whistling does have an upside, the deer and elk hear it.

Oh, and I downloaded the photobucket app to make the "pics or it didn't happen" happen.
Hey, that looks good!

I didn't see much difference when.I ran that setup vs. the "cai" I had for a while, even on my 4.6L

You could try removing the spacer, it may get rid of the whistling as that's how I got a BBK 62mm throttle body and ebay TB spacer from another 2006 TJ owner, who sold both to me shortly after purchasing them for a firesale price since it was driving him nuts. I ditched the spacer but have a stock airbox with only the 62mm BBK 17240 throttle body and it's quiet.

I have the stock TB from my 2006 with 58k on it that's in great condition, nothing wrong with it at all and works perfectly if your interested in going back to 100% stock. I only took the bbk throttle body because the throttle response is *slightly* better than a stock tb and with my 3.07 gears, any slight cheap improvement helps.

Hung, so to speak, the CJ grill/speaker system on the garage wall.

I plan to. I just don't have a torque wrench handy and the weather has to cooperate as I don't have a garage.

I do suspect the spacer as the cause of the whistle.

Thanks for the offer. PM me on a price.

The reason for going back to stock is to personally document whether the whole EDGE kit provides any improvement especially here at altitude.

So far the only thing I have noticed in disconnecting it is at WOT going up a long hill or trying to merge into traffic. In both cases, the rpm's are over 3200. Not exactly the most fuel friendly range to keep the needle...

I am due for new tires then some odds and ends then the big brake upgrade. That's when I'll worry about the skinny pedal.

The claim of helping with bigger tires is one of the things I am trying prove/disprove...

Anyone suggest an iPhone scanner/app dongle to run the numbers?

And no, my EDGE throttle body is not beveled as in this pic:

After we found out we were moving to Guam Last year I put the Jeep projects aside. Recently my wife finally agreed a Toyota Camry wouldn't be as much fun as a Jeep, so she told me I get to take the Jeep to Guam. She also gave me the permission to do some upgrades.

With that said this isn't today, but over the past week or so this is what I have done. I added a two inch budget boost and upgrades to bilsteen shocks. And over the past couple day I have been prepping and finally applying Monstaliner to the tub. I think it came out great.

Drove it to all my Honky Tonk shows this weekend!!! I do love walking out with my guitar after a show and seeing it shine under the street lamps. No matter where I have to play it will always get me home!!! No pic of the TJ, but a fan posted the picture of me and the band from Friday nights show. So here it is!!!

Installed my new currie TJJ adjustable trac bar. It significantly reduced my shimmy from 50-55 but I still have something to track down unfortunately.
