Newbie

I just reentered the Jeep world after a 35 year lapse. Years back, I had a 46 Willys for 3-4 years. I'm from NE Missouri.
We just bought a mostly stock, unlifted 2001 Sport, 170,000 miles, with no rust and ran great on the 3 hour drive home. It got a little over 20 mpg in this 200 mile drive; which I realize is not a very accurate test.
I'm planning on using this as a second vehicle. I and am not planning any mods unless it will enhance highway driveability.
The only thing that doesn't work is the cruise.
It does seem to suffer from what is called on another forum "heat soak", but I see that a recall (#BO6 Intake Manifold Debris Shield) was never performed. Is this "debris shield" actually a heat shield that may take care of the heat soak?
