That sounds awesome! I don't have a welder or any tools to fab up my own things, I really wish I did though. But let me know how your build goes and keep us updated on it.

So I just purchased a 4.0 throttle body for $30 I couldn't pass it up, so after reading up on how to do a throttle body swap, I've decided to take on the challenge. I'll post pics and a review to see if I actually gained anything from the upgrade.

Mounted the light brackets and put the lights on, I haven't wired them in yet though. I also got two more d-rings for the front bumper and put them on. Now just waiting on the new throttle body to come in

The 4.0 throttle body came in today and i put it in. I also ordered a new gasket that goes between the throttle body and the engine and i am glad i went ahead and ordered that since it was only $1. My old throttle body was nasty. The whole inside of it was black and gross, and the used one i bought wasnt much better. But theres nothing like some good ole' elbow grease to get it cleaned up, and......also some throttle body cleaner
So heres how i did it....
first i disconnected the negative wire from the battery then disconnected all the wires going to the throttle body.
Next, i disconnected the pipe going from the air filter to the throttle body and put it aside to get it out of the way.
I then unbolted the 4cyl throttle body and took all the sensors off of it.
I cleaned the 6cyl throttle body with carb/throttle body cleaner untill the inside of the throttle body, the part that the air travels in, was nice and clean. I also got used an air hose hooked up to a compressor to get all the dust and dirt out of the valve and in the nooks.
I took the sensors off the 6cyl throttle body and put the ones from the 4cyl onto it.
I put the 6cyl throttle body up to the intake and traced with a sharpie where i need to trim to make the hole bigger for the new throttle body.
I got some paper towels to put in the intake and got some painters tape and put it upside down on the paper towels to catch all the metal shavings, and got the dremel out and started grinding it out.
Then it was ready to go back in.
I put the new gasket in, bolted the throttle body up and hooked up all the wires, connected the battery and was finished.
AND to top it all off, I went to start it and it started up no problem on the first try ....that doesnt usually happen haha

Sounds like a nice build. Have you given any thought to adding an inertia ring to your 2.5? Heres a write up on the inertia ring https://www.facebook.com/#!/notes/th...50330578364216

I feel bad for not posting in months but I haven't been able to do anything new in a long time to my jeep. I've really been wanting to but I just can't really afford anything at the moment. My next plans though are to get a sye and a driveshaft so I can get rid of the t.case drop and get more clearance. And I'm not sure what will be next after I order that in the spring. I would really like to get 35's for my jeep but I need a lot before I can do that, like a 8.8, new gears, body lift, and metalcloak fenders. Well that is my future plans for her. As of now I just have to have fun with what I got.

It's looking really good! Just a thought for you... Maybe do some accent painting? My grill and headlight trim rings are done black and I think it's a pretty good look. It's cheap, and easy to do and can add some quick style. I like the blacked out lights you did too.. Here's mine, sorry, this is the only pic showing the front I currently have on this cpu..

Yeah I love the look of the blacked out grill and hope to do it one day. Did you use bed liner or just a duplicolor auto paint?

Yeah I still have stock gearing, and mine doesn't bog down unless I'm going up hill on the highway but even when I go downhill the fastest I can go is probably 75 haha but if you're bogging down on the highway I would consider some performance upgrades and new gears but you can only do so much to a 4cyl haha

Mines actually a layover. Was one of those chrome pos and well now it's black 😃 I'm planning on pulling the layover off and just doing plasti-dip or just painting the original grill. Not sure yet.

I literally have the same Jeep with the same upgrades. I would suggest the SYE/cv and get rid of that transfer case drop with out a doubt. I had problem with the RC +4 and had really bad drive line vib, the SYE/CV is a great upgrade.

Oh, I upgraded spark plug wire, spark plugs, 4.0 throttle body, Airaid CAI, and a battery grounding kit and the difference was night and day. Engine does not crazy loud at 4000 rpm, smoother idle, lower end power improvement for sure. I will be doing the electric fan too.

Yeah i plan on getting the sye sometime in the spring because my jeep has a hard time starting in first and I feel like the transfer case drop is wearing down the gears and the clutch pretty bad.

Those are just some lights I picked up from Walmart for $30 or $40. They are terrible though...don't put off a lot of light. I'm about to get some KC's though

If you've got the extra $$$$to spend get some Rigid Industries lights. They are bright and very durable. These lights draw barely any amps from your system. KCs draw so much and you can hear the alternator draw when you turn them on. IMO spend an extra $$$ and go this route you will be happy.

I'll definitely look into those lights then
