What about a RIPP supercharger?
That will really give you some gains in power.

|krajniken||Kelsey is that the Arctic edition? I was going to wait to buy that in a 2dr but the 0% financing and the treadlighty discount made it too tempting on the 11....|
|03-06-2012 11:49 PM|
|krajniken||Thanks suicide... I will look into what you recommend when I go to the shop to work on a deal for all of this|
|03-06-2012 11:46 PM|
Thanks Kelsey! I am sure I am in this for more than 5k aftermarket already and if my wife starts asking too many questions then I will tell her to talk to you...lol
XJ I have an 11 Wrangler Mojave edition 2dr that comes with the Rubi tires and 4.10 gears already... Will it make that much of a difference going up to 5.13 gearing?

If you don't have a lift, I'd start there.
I paid about $2500 for my Rock Krawler 2.5" Max travel + Bilstein shocks + front drive shaft.
You could definitely get a less expensive lift if you don't wheel much. Other than that, rock rails are essential for any amount of wheeling. You could also do bumpers which is more cosmetic than functional, but adds function too if you get recovery bumpers. Could also throw a winch on the front while you're at it.
Most important for you to decide if looks or functionality are more important. If someone threw me $5K, I'd probably get 35" tires, gears, and lockers...

|Kelsey73||Oh yes welcome! my wife always is shaking her head when I start reading on here. The next thing she will start asking is "how much"|
|03-06-2012 10:59 PM|
Guessing your buying a rubicon then since you metioned rubi tires. The stock 4.10 gearing will be of great help for you off the bat till you eventually go up in tire size and do regear.. I know chips and programers do have a positive effect on the 3.8 but I'll let others with experience with those speak as to what they will do for you..
The first 3 things I would think about is communication (cb radio), Armor (skid plates), and recovery (tow straps with loop ends, after market winch bumpers, winch).
As to a lift I would look into that when you know what tire size your gonna run.. With the JK a 2.5in lift will let you run 35's. You will aslo need to look into wheel spacers or new wheels when going past a tire that is 10.5 inches wide as with the stock rims alone you would rub when turning.
On a armor note.. from what I understand the evap canister on the JK is quite vulnerable and a pretty expensive fix if it is broken.. Look into evap canister skids right away even before you hit the trail

|krajniken||I will mostly use it as a DD though and then of course while camping, and driving through the mountains here in Washington, and if I can find an offroad group I will be going out with them but I am not interested in putting a lift on it as of now and I will stick with the 33' Rubi tires that it came with for the near future....|
|03-06-2012 10:31 PM|
Yes I plan on offroading! I would like to join a group here in Seattle so I will try to find one...
Thanks for the tip kb I will do the tape measure rule and then go from there....
|03-06-2012 10:22 PM|
|kbwwolf||Make sure you use ACTUAL tire size with the charts XJ posted, not the tire size the mfr claims. Use a tape measure and level and use that #.|

Funny one XJ!! That had my wife asking what the hell I was smiling about from across the room!
Ok thanks for all the info!! I am looking forward to becoming part of the Jeep community!!
|03-06-2012 10:19 PM|
here's a bigger chart for ya..
Now with that said... do you plan on offroading your jeep at all.. cause what you plan on doing with your jeep can dictate where you should spend your money on it
|03-06-2012 10:16 PM|
buy as much chrome and nos stickers as you can.. it will give you a big jump in HP . 30in dubs ftw
Joking Of Course,
WELCOME TO WF
Proper regearing will bring your power numbers back to stock.. To give you an idea of what the proper gear ratio is for what tire size you want run here is a chart that gives you an idea of what gear ratio is best for what tire size
Sorry the chart is so small.. I will try to find a bigger one
|03-06-2012 10:08 PM|
Want 35s dont want to REGEAR ??
The first page-and-a-half or so deals w/the 2012 (3.6L engine), but then gets into the 3.8L models ('07-'11). It's probably gonna make your head spin, but it'll at least give you an understanding of what you'll need to do to wring more power outta your Jeep.
It's not an engine thing. Hate to say it, but your CAI was probably a waste of $$. Many folks on here have tried em; most have gotten rid of em. Not all, of course. There's always somebody who insists their CAI rocks. But the majority of people on here would tell you to spend the money somewhere else.

I am new to all of this obviously
So what performance gains would I expect with regearing my Jeep?
|03-06-2012 09:49 PM|
4.88 or 5.13 gearing
|03-06-2012 09:47 PM|
|krajniken||Yes it is an auto.... How much would that run do you think?|
|03-06-2012 09:46 PM|
|Kelsey73||If you have an auto your best bet would be to regear.|
|03-06-2012 09:44 PM|
What to do with 5k??? 2011 Wrangler Mojave JK 2dr
This is my first post here and I am hoping to get some great ideas for my rig on this post.
I would like to hear what performance parts you would put in your rig if you had 5k laying around I do not want to buy a 2012 so please do not suggest that
I have already added on some KC fog lights, and the Mopar cold air intake but I am looking for more performance as far as horsepower and mpgs...
New exhaust maybe, new headers? How about a computer programmer or are those even worth it? I live near 4wheelparts near Seattle and will probably purchase most of my parts from them.
Also if anybody knows of an off roading group near Seattle I would like to go sometime so please let me know!
