Im new to the Jeep world, and new to driving a stick shift.LOL So pedestrians in New Mexico beware.LOL

My husband has a 1970 Scout and enjoys off roading, I decided I wanted to drive my own 4x4 so I sold my corvette . At this point we are putting a lift on the YJ, and waiting on rims and tires. I have pulled everything out and painted the interior, the paint on the body is okay for now.

However my husband is not used to working on Jeeps and we have an idle problem. When we purchased the Jeep, it had a rebuilt engine had had mostly been put together, we got it to fire. But the miss is bad. Anybody know of a good place in town to take it to ? Thanks and nice to meet you all.

4 Wheel Parts is a great place to try, but don't know if they have a garage. They'll help you out though!!!

As to the Miss run though the firing order again. Double check spark gap. Check spark wires for cracks.
