3.8 supercharger on 4.0 will it fit?

I have the opportunity to put in a 3.8 ford supercharger in my 2000 wrangler. I was just wondering if anyone has seen or done this setup before or if it will even work.

Thanks ahead of time

i highly doubt that you will get a supercharger for a v6 to work on a inline 6....If you manage to do it I would think it would require exstensive custom work..seem like it would be cheaper to just get a supercharger made for a 4.0

A turbo from an SVO or turbo coupe might be an option

All of that power talk is useless without the chainlink steering wheel. It's a proven fact that unless you have the chainlink steering wheel, your rig will suck.

The blower would work if you can fabricate the intake and exhaust. The problem you'd have is getting the computer to play well with the new setup.
