Wires "seem" good; but you know how that is. The only thing that made me think otherwise is that it does not have to be wet, just cold. Yet when it is wet and cold, good luck getting it to idle until warmed. It's already running smoother; a noticeable difference.

TB was extremely dirty with a ridge formed and portions of the ridge broke away. The IAC did not look so bad, but there was a small ridge of carbon built up in the block in which it mounts. I've cleaned all and seafoamed the engine. We'll see how it works in the morning.

Cold or wet weather idle issue

I have a 98 TJ 4.0, 5 speed. Is idle problems common on jeeps in cold wet weather? It's only first thing in the morning. Once the engine is at operating temp it runs fine. Otherwise, may or may not idle at initial start up and stalls at intersections, until engine is warm. Gets great fuel mileage (16 mpg on 33's) and seems to be running clean. It runs strong but has small fluctuation in idle even at opperqting temp; not enough to notice on tach.Recent repairs are plugs, cap, and rotor.
