Pretty much just dropped mine back in and away I went.

There are things I want to have done, there is a place down in the states somewhere that will reflash your computer to the new specs of your motor, also I heard Mopar auto will tune it in and dyno it.

Is it possible to get a standalone setuP you can tune on the fly?

You can put a adjustable MAP sensor, but xjs are computer set timing, no way to advance or retard, there are also adjustable crank sensors.

For the first bit mine did some weird things but now runs smooth and powerful

Just rehear your diffs, keep the motor
Stock you will get better fuel mileage with the right gears

I use less fuel now than I did with stock motor, if its built right you can run regular gas.

so jeeps up and running got a few bugs to work out for now one bug when im driving down the road i get ridiculous shimmy so bad my front end starts bouncing around i just replaced the steering stabilizer and it seems to have helped a bit but it still wants to do it when im doing over big bumps and what not any suggestions what this could be? im thinkin tie rod ends but there pretty tight still so im kinda stumped any help would be good thanks

Doubt it's the caster, Unless u have your control arms completely out of adjustment

U think your drivetrain is worn with only 200 000ks on it lol

Mine has close to 700 000k on the drivetrain :D

Make sure you take the wheel off and check for rust around the sealed hub bearing.

it's probably the joke of a track bar those shitty rough cunt kits come with try posting some pics the rest of us can see of the front end steerin set up

Maybe measure adj control arms if u have ? If not probably wont be caster if they are fixed and came with lift.

Try wheel alignment. Use two 2x4's clamp each one to each front tire and measure front and back of wheel. The front should be toed in 1/8" at the most compared to rear front tires.

Like B said take a pic of front steering geometry too. Will help eliminate one thing

Track bar bushings could be fucked, tie rods, ball joints, wheel bearings, even if you have extended sway bar links that arnt right length they will cause a shimmy, mine did that so I just cut them out lol, have someone jerk the steering wheel back and fourth quickly while u look at the front end and you will find the loose parts FAST
