My 1st Jeep



I bought my first Jeep yesterday. I have been a diesel man for years but decided to do a little some thing different.

2004 Wrangler Sport
4.0 I6
5Spd


My TJ has what looks like a 3"-4" Skyjacker Suspension Lift with American Racing ATX Series 18" Wheels with 33 X 12.50 Nitto Mud Grapplers. I was told that it has a locker in the rear but not sure which one.

It has a Cold Air Intake Kit but I am wondering if its worth the money to add a programmer and throttle body spacer? I know its not going to add a bunch of power but seems like it should help some.



Luke

Thanks Guys!!! That's kinda what I thought but I figured since I could get those items at dealers cost it would be worth it. Still seems like a waste of money.
