performance chips

I have a 2004 Rubicon with a 4.0L and am wanting try a performance chip and am wanting to know if anyone has tried either of these chips. I am thinking of either the Powerbox performance chip from Autochips direct for $59 or from PCD chips for $69.

If you havent done any major engine changes like forced induction/stroker/or cylinder head work, then any kind of chip will just be a waste.

They work pretty well on the JKs, but do not do enough to matter on the TJs.

2000 Sahara, 3.5" Rubicon Express Lift, 1" spring spacer & 1" Body Lift, 33" or 35" BFG Mud tires, Front & Rear ARB, Rancho 9000 shocks, UCF Ultra High Belly Up, Savvy gas tank skid.
