You had to do the cardboard thing with the cps on older Jeeps, too. You used to be able to buy pre cut cardboard circles, even, as ridiculous as that sounds!
? On your 96 4.0 engine, the new CPS should come with one on it, that gets torn off as the engine rotates.
I'd expect the CPS to fail rather rapidly if too close, whereas it could just flake out if too far away to get a solid signal.
