I just ordered a Ripp SC for my 08 rub...
I was so sold on the Roots and ready to pull the trigger...I read their install Doc (since I'll have to do it my self) Last Friday I called (long distance from Leb.) to get some clarification on 8 questions.
I spoke to a real nice fellow for about 10min, but he couldn't answer any of them, said he was new and that THE guy that help me was out.
He did take notes and said they would email me..they had my address as we had previously corresponded.
I mentioned several times that I was in a hurry as the season here was short.
One week later no answer...ordered from Ripp.
The quality of the product is important but when you're half way around the work I need CUSTOMER SERVICE.

And I'm the guy who really wanted to cut a hole and put the scoop on my hood...

JPi1 The Tentrax, awesome trailer! When I built mine, I wanted to put a tent on top, then decided against it. The size tent I wanted wouldn't quite fit.

Yeah, maybe the DIABLO will come up with something, otherwise--ya gotta stay stock !

JIMBOX Sounds kewl, question !

If it has the roller cam, do you have many NON STOCK options, that'll operate with the Chrysler ECU ??

Does it have hollow steel pushrods and are there roller rockers ??

What do you think of the ridiculous intake manifold mating columns/gaskets, --I've never seen anything likeit ??

Are you saying that the rear main DOESN'T HAVE A CAP and does it still use a 360° rear wiper, behind the brg ??

Thanx for the info !!

JPi1 The 3.8 engine is actually a very stout package:
4 bolt mains
Roller cam
Teflon coated flat top pistons
One piece rear main
Cross ram style intake
I think it has potential!

I've been told that the 3.8 can't handle the boost and loses reliability quick. This coming from someone who blew a few of them.

Check out attitude performance. They are in Arlington Heights. Great shop specializing in 4x4s.

AmericanWrangler2012 i agree on that ^ what your saying. depends on the driver i guess. i dont know. just got off phone with ripp mods and theyll have a supercharger for the 2012 pennstar in first quater of 2012 sometime. they have it built just working on the electronics part of the build.
11-21-2011 01:00 PM
oilwell1415 I don't believe for a second that you can gain 5-7 mpg by installing a blower. I'm sure there are people out there claiming it, but I question their test methods and/or their integrity. You can't add a source of parasitic drag and pumping losses and get a mileage increase out of the deal. It just doesn't work.
11-21-2011 12:50 PM
AmericanWrangler2012 read all this.. about the mpg gains, does anybody take into consideration maybe people leave there jk stock and just run a ripp supercharger with a full exhaust ie headers and maybe a hushpower flow with mbrp exhaust. if you drive it normal and not be ball to wall you could see decent gain. some people claim on stock jk's with what i said in mods supercharger and full exhaust gain mpg on "HIGHWAY" of 5-7 mpg. not that bad. once you lift and big tires you see a gain but not as much on stock hieght and tire

Forget towing 3500lbs with a jk. Too short a wheelbase even if you get enough horsepower and torque.

He was running 35's, but yeah, definitely underpowered.

The first thing I noticed is it almost looks like the impact was so severe that the passenger front wheel kicked far enough back to knock the steps into the back fender.

The 214 is at the wheels. Your brother's ram number is at the crank.
