2011 Wrangler Unlimited - Superchip?

I can't seem to find a listing for a 'chip' or Flashpaq on the Superchip web site. Is there any way to make this 3.8L perform better via the computer / mapping?
Thanks -
Chris

lol...you're not alone. I was on another (lesser) forum a week or so ago, and an argument broke out in a thread about the superchip...whether or not superchip should release an updated version (when they get it) for the '11 or '12 first.

Pretty entertaining.

Thanks Wolf.
How do you make these 3.8 dogs perform without breaking the budget? My wifey is struggling with 205 HP compared to the 325 HP she had formerly.
Thinking I would've waited for the 2012 had I known it was going to get the Pentastar and 80 more HP.

Is your Jeep stock, or lifted with bigger tires?

Lifted or stock?

Not lifted - but did swap out wheels and tires (slight upsize).
KMC XD Misfit wheels - black - 18x9
BFG A/T 275/65/18 tires

Supposedly as big as I could go without lifting or rubbing.
My wife is only 5'5" and this is her daily driver - for now.

Which by the way I need to sell the stock wheels and tires with 150 miles on them that are taking up space in my garage (will move to classifieds...)

Just curious...I was wondering if you might not need to re-gear. But what you've done shouldn't have affected things hardly at all. Unfortunately, the 3.8's just a turd.

Pray for superchips...though it'll only do so much.

Just put 35's on my rig (same color as yours, btw...black jeeps rock) last week. Picked up my stock tires/wheels today, and on a whim drove 2 blocks to the dealership...which cut me a check for $500.

They had 400 miles on em.

I'd have taken $400 to keep from having them stacked in my garage all winter.

Celebrated with some soft tacos from Chipotle.
