It would be better to go back to full stock and then root thereafter. There is a modified (pre-rooted) stock 4.3 rom but this comes with the modified MJ2 bootloader so flashing it could cause a brick. You could flash simultaneously with the 4.3 (MJB) bootloader & modem to avoid the brick but the process gets complicated.
You may go to the thread below for full stock 4.3 restore instructions...
Once you are done with this, there are several ways to root. CF-Auto Root is the most basic. If this doesn't work, you could try Option 2 in the thread below ....
My preferred method of rooting is, however, SafeRoot. Unlike other methods, this doesn't trip your warranty bit - if this is still relevant. You can see download links and instructions in the thread below....
