everything i have heard of them they are a complete BULL$ˇ37 they are fake. you will se just less than 10 hp and no mpg gain. because most of them lean the fuel-air mixture making more hp BUT hotter temp inside the pistons expect way less engine life and even less life out of your cats.
i personally dont have experience with them but every single person that i know always tell me to stay away of them. its better just to let the engine as it is.
There are chips that def work for specific vehicle. Think Corvette and other performance cars as they are retarded at the factory level for EPA, gas mileage, etc. However, as stated above, they don't seem Jeep friendly. In fact, Jeeps seem to hate EVERYTHING not OEM electronic wise, like the O2 sensors and such

I wonder what the EPA thinks of them on Diesel engines. I spent 21 years buying full size, 40' diesel buses, and no OEM engine manufacturer (DDA, Cummins, or Cat) will approve them. But then it's your 450-500k bus so do what you think is best.

Ok, I have heard some things about Chips and 60 extra HP. And Gas mileage and such. What's the REAL truth about them ? Good ? Bad ? Worth it or not ?
What's the cost and value for for that cost ?
Not on a TJ.

That moment when you look at a really nice JK and think to yourself, "Well I SUPPOSE I could see myself trading in my TJ for one of those, but for those ugly ass door handles."
