Chips and computer mods do work in some vehicles but you will get little to nothing in the TJ.

I prefer Boulder Chips for those times when I'm tired and need a performance boost.

Put your money in Drivetrain or suspension upgrades a Chip will do little or nothing.

While a chip can make a small improvement at the drag strip at high engine RPMs and wide open throttle, it won't help anywhere else. Save your $$$.
Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.
