Still stuck

After trying to find out why a CEL appeared last night on my TJ today, I can't find anything. When leaving the mall last night I got the code p0174. For starters, I made sure my gas cap was on tight and proceeded to pop the hood and look. I DO have a cold air intake installed, but have had no problems with it. My friend who installed it said his CEL came on last night as well because of the crazy weather we have been having with the high humidity and what not and that the computer will have to adjust itself to the new weather. Does this sound possible?

She runs the same and I have not noticed any decrease in performance. I Checked the Vac lines and nothing seems broken or exposed. It's just making me nervous since this is my only vehicle and I'm going on long trips with it during my vacation

its a 2005 LJ, 96k, auto

well im new here but a mechanic, first off its a fuel system bank 2 sensor 1. if you or someone you knows or just bring it to the shop they should be able to watch your 02 sensors. if its a short to ground on 1 of the sensors it will read near 0 or 0 volts, or if its a short to voltage the reading will be high. try that first and let me know
