Sorry the original post was short - I haven't had a chance to read all the reply's yet but thought some might want to know what the results were on the 3.8 after a Supercharger. It is a RIPP system. The install was fairly simple. The boost is fantastic and comes on great throughout the RPM's. It is a lot of money - about $6,800 including long tub headers, hushpower and MBRP SS exhaust. I have a 4 1/2 inch lift (radius long arm), 37" tires, 5:13 Yukon gears, Rubicrawler gear reduction, and a bunch of Smittybilt parts on the jeep etc about 30K in total extras. It's a 4 door 2010. I will post pictures soon. Ripp did a great job tuning this S.C. for a jeep - no doubt it was worth the money for me personally - it's a chunk of change I agree. My jeep weighs 5,900 LBS and was a slug and now it just drives a lot easier and I'm not always mashing the gas to get the jeep up to speed. It's great 4x4ing as well - getting the Blow-Off (by-pass) valve set right is really key - Love the JK - as I have 2 other jeeps 75 CJ and a 79 CJ.

Nice - good to hear - if this is a fresh install you must be running our newest series of tunes - they are super smooth.

Thanks for the positive input...

SylvanSahara, seems to be a lot of us wi a V10 Mopar as our other convertible so far this little "squirrell" as the JK seems to be called on the Jeep forums keeps me grinning ear to ear! Thank God for the 3:73, I rented a 3:21 from Thrifty and it was OK, but just!!
