If it has the notoriously bad Carter BBD carb, you can remove the venturi's and drill them out as they have a tendency to plug up. A webiste that has the blow by blow info on how to perform this is http://rubicon.off-road.com/jeep/tech/engine/carter.html. It is rather easy to do and will help to keep the venturi's from pluggin ing hte future.
