I kinda want to put a supercharger in my 2008 jeep wrangler. What do you guys think? Anyone have one? just seems im under powered and wanna add some power without doing a engine swap or rebuild. Any other options i have to add a significant amount of power?

Forced induction is probably going to be the only way to get significant power gain without an engine swap or a lot of internal engine work! All other stuff will be minimal gains.
CAI= waste of money; tuners= small increase in power, questionable about actual power gain, maybe 10 - 20 %..... just barely enough to maybe let the butt dyno feel a little increase.
Best of luck to you.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by its clean end!

Gotta 2009 myself. Even with stock 4.10s the power was never there. Now that we are sportin 37 toyos and 5.38s we still dont have the umph. At this moment I dont know which way I am going, RIPP or Magnusun. Both systems have thier merits.
