Performance Question

I have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a 4in lift and 33x12.5 BF Mud tires and would like to get some more horsepower. I've thought about a CAI or an exaust system but I honestly have no idea what I should do. Suggestions?

Re-gear it if you are still running stock gears. Its the only really noticable thing you can do.

What have we got?

Don't throw you money away on intakes, exhaust or chips. They do nothing unless your engine is already modified.
I know a lot of things, most of them are only correct in my own head...

Better to be judged by twelve then carried by six. I'm sure this is going to get me in trouble down the line

You're not going to get a ton of power out of your motor by doing the "normal" mods...

like mentioned above, the best way is to regear...

Yep, 4.56's will make a big difference(did for me , especially if you have a manual with 3.07's, but even so with a automatic with 3.55's.

Oh and less weight = more power
See where I wheel.
