I found the tb on ebay for 60 shipped which was a steal. And a friend let me have the composit upper and another the maf. It was definatley worth it. I dont know what size the 4.0 tb is but you will need to get tuned.

looks like your intake tube needs to be pushed in some more... Mine popped off whilei was driving one day and that sucked haha. I dont want that intake tube popping off!

Hah! Your light is out right at the top of the speedo just like mine!

Noticed that right off the bat, It is sort of annoying in my own truck, and will eventually get it fixed.. Not too shabby =) I'll have to put up a 0-60 here soon.. planning on a tuner after I get my wheels/tires in =)

Requires a flash tuner and a special tune, this is my third 4.0L MAF conversion and they've all done well. Not recommended for granny drivers or feather-foots!

Aluminum is up to '98 and most '99+ SOHC's are composite. Best to know the Year and PCM code of the vehicle you get the MAF from, but if you don't, it's doable...

I'd be interested in seeing that. Is the MAF neccesary to change out or can you run the stock 3.0 MAF?

2004+ are able to go to the Rogue MAF http://stuffforyourranger.com
We are working on other years as well.

Again, the 70MM is eff'n huge and it is not for everyone.
