Looks nice... Did you install it yourself or have someone install it for you? How much did it cost you?

I too have a RIPP supercharger and had to remove my radiator mounted trans cooler. I see you've got one mounted near your transfer case. What is the brand and model number? That may be my solution.

I know off the top of my head that it is a B & M cooler, but I will have to try and find the part number for you.

Yeah . . . can't say something like that and offer NO PICTURES.

How would you characterize the driving experience? Would you say you have "plenty of power," has it simply become "adequate," or something in between?

Here you go. The lift is the AEV 4.5", and the ride is great in my opinion. The power is more than adequate. I love it!!!

i was just curious as to why you would mount your trans cooler underneath your jeep? doesnt seem like a very good spot to me for a couple of reasons. 1. if you get in mud and it get covered in it i dont think it will be able to dissipate heat like it should. 2. if anything hits it hard enough down there it is going to rip those self tapping screws right out of the sheet metal or even puncture it. 3. it is designed to have air pass through it to help the cooling process. dont know how much air flow you are going to get down there.

Well, the cooler definitely is cooling because it was checked and reading 240 degrees going in and 140 going out. As far as location of the cooler. I just didn't want it in the front. I like it where it is, but to each there own.

Nice

AEV has some quality stuff for sure! They also stress street performance with thier lifts.

Love those wheels too! I like what they have to say about China making them too!

Interesting. They have a 2.5" coming soon.

Cool Rig

Love the wheels and tires. Look like they were made for the 4 door. Very nice jeep in many respects. Very clean installations!

Awesome jeep! The pictures are great! How much did the whole RIPP upgrade cost you? I noticed in your pics that you did not have a spare tire mounted on the back door? Do you carry a spare or do you have it mounted inside somehow? Thanks!
