Default How do I unroot when on stock (rooted) 4.3 firmware?

I am on firmware 4.3 that I rooted a while ago. I would like to unroot 4.3 however I cannot figure out how. I thought I could flash stock 4.3 via Odin but there are no .tar versions of 4.3. Help?

Do you have the full stock version of 4.3 or the modified (unrooted) version? You can check your phone's settings and build number to see if it's MJB or MJ2. You can try unrooting from the SuperSU app. The definitive solution to unrooting is indeed to flash a complete stock image. An Odin flashable *.tar file was recently developed. There have, however, been reports on outcome. You can flash custom recovery to your phone (either of CWM or TWRP) and use the instructions in the thread below to download and flash a complete stock restore.
