Don't waste your money. You won't notice enough performance increase to justify the cost. IMO save that money for some other mods. I do believe they can benefit certain performance vehicles and some trucks however our TJ's are not one of them. BTW my '99 has an AME Brute Force and TB spacer installed by the original owner.

Don't bother, neither will help. ESPECIALLY not the throttle body spacer. The type of throttle body the TJ uses doesn't benefit from a spacer like carburetors and the old style throttle bodies (TBI... throttle body injected) did.

I've had better results with a free flowing air filter like K&N combined with a less restrictive muffler or glass pack.

A K&N is the last filter you want to run on a Jeep that will see dusty conditions. K&N's air filter is well known to be as effective at filtering out fine dust and silicates as a screen door is at filtering out the dust from a dust storm.
