I just finished two upgrades to my JP that both had an immediately noticeable difference, and I highly encourage everyone to do them if you have not already.
1) Changed the pop bumper spoons to the Williams style (https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/C-921). I know others have said this, which is why I did it. I rebuilt my pops not too long ago on my Getaway, and wow what a difference. When I got my JP, I was disappointed at how sluggish and unresponsive they were compared to my Williams machine. Anyway, I just now replaced the 3 pop spoons with the Williams type, and now the pops are much more lively than before. My gaps already looked good, so all I did was put the new spoons in which were noticeably more flexible and clean the contacts with a dollar bill.
2) Replace the 3 flipper grommets (https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/545-5105-00). Another thing I was surprised by was the range that the flipper on my JP had verses my Getaway - they had almost twice the rotation. Again, someone here mentioned replacing the grommets to someone awhile back here in the thread, so since I was ordering stuff I decided to get them. I removed the old ones which were visibly worn, installed the new ones on all three flipper brackets, then I lowered the playfield and was surprised! The two bottom flippers where sticking up about 1/2" on one side and 3/4" on the other. I readjusted the two flippers, and now their range is much more reasonable. Funny thing is that right off the bat I was making shots with ease that I previously struggled to make (the loop past the 3 pops was much easier, and I hit the raptor pit 3 times in a row from the right flipper).
Anyway, a little maintenance goes a long way in making things more enjoyable.
