For those who don't know, or are willing to help consume alcohol and install this bad boy, I picked it up in Charlotte on Saturday. It's a Hesco (Eaton) twin screw supercharger kit with a 5-7 psi pulley on it. Looks like it came with all the brackets and plates needed, as well as the Unichip tuner.


I hate browsing on Craigslist and buying stuff I don't need.... But sometimes the price is too hard to turn down.

Does that thing go in line with the rest of the pulleys or do you need an extra crank pulley?

Runs in line with 1 monster belt. I'll keep a spare for sure.

So where does it mount? On top of the intake under the throttle body?

The throttle body bolts to the back of the blower. Blower mounts on top of the intake mani. It reroutes the intake over the valve cover and to the passenger side. Only way to stay under the stock hood is to have a non-intercooled kit so im limited to 7psi, which is more than enough

lol it's just a Jeep. My SRT doesn't even have meth. Maybe if it had a stroker or forged internals. The torque down low will be nice, but not enough to blow the tires out on the trail, so it should be a nice addition. A turbo would do exactly what you were saying.

give me time to gather everything to get it on, and I'll probably have a laundry list of other fixes for it at the same time. Need to plug some oil leaks lol. I'm hoping to start it in the late spring.

You truely can never get all of it. What irritates me the most is the inside of the tires. Outside is perfect with tire shine, but the inside looks like it came right off the trail... No matter how much I hit it with the pressure washer.

I'm going to stick the hose with the grass waterer thingy under the truck in the next few days. Mine is pretty rough under the shiny tires and paint lol.

My JKU usually carries around 100lbs of mud I think, stuck in every nook and cranny...
Everytime I think it is clean, I find more mud under it when it gets wet out or sprayed.

Nice rock garden video!!

On the cleaning thoughts... the JKU I am selling has a few light scratches on the side from tree branches. I tried some Nu Finish polish I had but it didn't do much. Any other ideas?? Want to hopefully get rid of them to make the sale easier...
Thanks!

I used Turtle Wax rubbing compound on scratches before. Depends on the size of the area, you could try a small area.

Compound is OK on light color vehicles. Polish after compound on dark.

PC or Flex polisher with polishing compound and correct pads will be able to get out light scratches.

Deeper scratches will require a rotary orbital, but that takes a trained hand.

And I still get dirt falling into my eye everytime I climb under my truck. I don't think it will ever be mud-free underneath!

I use a full face shield when I'm under the rig - makes it much better!

Soon I hope. Finally fixed my broken CV, and went from 35s to 37s. I still need to install the Kings and shackle flip, so I can flex the 37s without them rubbing on the fenders lol. Just waiting for some warmer weather.

Got the truck checked out at 4WP and got some good and band news.

Bad news:

-All the ball joints up front need to be replaced. Easier to just buy a nice Currie setup.
-All the control arm bushings are "toasted." And they only use that term when it is going to tear up soon.
-It doesn't have a SYE, but rather a hack-n-tap.

Good news:

All that can be fixed pretty easily, seeing Greg at 4WP wants the blower...

So the delima is, get rid of the blower to fix what needs to be done right, or keep the blower and get bushings, ball joints, ect and stay on a budget.

Opinions/Advice?

I'm going to regret either decision. I do need these parts before doing any more decent wheeling, but the blower is so rare and i'll prob never come across one again... Going to do a good bit of thinking on this one.

I think Greg is the same guy that told me that my YJ will never see a trail. Enough said.

I would go with the suspension upgrades. Would think that the blower would drive it into the ground at a higher rate.
