:::::::::: Build Update ::::::::::::

It's not that big of a deal, but with my limited knowledge, I'm glad I was able to get it done.... I changed the Throttle Body to the 4.0! My phone died, so I didn't have it to take pictures...

I did run into a little problem... The 4.0 throttle body sensors don't allow you to bolt it directly on... So I had to make a trip to my local hardware store to by security torx bits and change out the sensors.... As soon as I did, everything bolted on fine!

I'm not sure, if my mind is playing tricks on me or not... but it does feel like it has a LITTLE more "get up" and idles a tad bit better... I think the idle fix, may be attributed to having a super clean throttle body in there.

Next on the list... is building an ammo can center console... I will forsure take photos of that process!

I'm pritty sure there's a guy on eBay that does decals for the side of jeeps. You type what you want and stuff.
