Wesboy Taking the whole throttle body off is very easy - 4 easily accesible bolts and the accelerator cable.
Then it's much easier to get at the TPS torx (T20) and you can give the throttle body a good clean at the same time.

Hillbilly1 I had to bust the old one off enough to put vise grips on the bolt heads, I sure was not going to put torx bolts back in! (Someone had replaced it before, and had already stripped the heads out, Loctite on them didn't help any either!)

This is exactly what it took for me, as well.

Throttle Position Sensor

Has anyone removed or replaced the throttle position sensor on their jeep? I have been having a lot of trouble with getting the screws lossened to even remove the part. Does anyone have any tips? I drive a '99 and need to get this part fixed before I drive home from college after finals week. Thanks.
