Tuner and 35's :thumb:

07 rubicon 4:10's 6 speed.

I've been running Superchips 93 tune for 3-4 months now, really not much of a difference tuned with the stock 32's.
I Drove around for a week after installing the 35's, sunday reverted back to stock. Letting the Rpms dip below 2k was rough. I has to keep up around 2500-3K. Big difference tuned.
With the tune, i def can feel more low. The jeep is not sluggish under 2K like is was before stock, even with the 32's

Set back to 93, it does take some mileage for the tune to take. All good again and I'll save me $1700 on a regear


Superchips = win

Price for 93 octane = fail

So it's working...cool. I was curious.

Alas, not an option for '11's and beyond. Suckers! Oh, wait...I'm one of the suckers.

Price of gas blows, though. Then again, how many decades will it take before you lose that $1700 savings you'd have spent on a regear?

I'd say that $200 was worth it

Glad to hear your getting good results with your new set up. I can't imagine the shock of putting 93 in my jeep though I think I would seriously blackout watching the "charge amount" keep going and going and....

ARG!

More Info!!!!!


Wow, this thread came at an interesting time. for you to post this thread, I was just having a chat with kbwwolf and the guys about gearing.

I have an '07 JKU with 4.10 gears and manual transmission too.

I like the sounds of this.

This gives me more food for thought.

Like I need more.

(Thanks for the input by the way)

Superchips Flashpaq
Few others also, but no experience with them.

The tuner itself has throttle map options. Works great along with the Sprintbooster.
Jeep feels less "heavy" and drivability is night and day. Great combo

I too had a little chat with KB. First thought was to regear. Reverting back to stock was awful. If the tuner did not help as much the jeep would be in the shop right now getting gears.

Something to consider, type of driving?
I do mostly city. Highway is OK I'm up around 2k in 6th gear going 70.
Not passing anybody
For my style driving the tuner works for me

If you or anybody else is graced with 4.10's and the 6 speed, give it a shot.
$300 is far from the $1700 quote I got for gears. If it does not work for your then sell it..... I actually bought this tuner from a member for less

And.... Like mentioned there is no tuner available for the 11-->

Good luck

Oh one more thing. I'm rocking one of the lightest--if not the lightest?--35" x15 tire/wheel combo for the size.

35x20 Nitto's on motto metals....

Nobody knows.

My Superchips tuner drastically improves the throttle responsiveness and shift points/torque management of my '10 with automatic transmission. I'll be interested to see how it will perform when/if I go to 35's.

I've read some opinions that the tuner has a minimal effect on those JK's with manual transmissions. But again I can definitely say it's worth the purchase price if you have an automatic.
