We present our latest three-dimensional time-dependent simulations of T Tauri jets launched from the surface of Keplerian disks, in an effort to extend the calculations to scales probed by HST (~50 AU) thereby allowing a direct comparison between simulations and observations. We explore the long-term stability the simulated jets were able to achieve. We plan to produce toroidal velocity maps that can be directly compared with the observed radial velocity shifts in several T Tauri jets that are suggestive of jet rotation.
