All the same features for your year JK.

It took Superchips quite awhile before they released the 2010 version.

Thats why 2010 owners seem a little geeked up now.

Maybe since you personally know them :-)...You could check with them for those of us driving manuals and find out what they promise this chip is going to do to help us.

blaster199 "But I would agree with flashing it back to stock before you take it in to the dealer. Its very quick & easy to do."

x2 on reflash b4 servicing. Takes 3 minutes why risk it?

Oh and Im a little over 1mpg over stock. Hard to tell how much but its at least a solid 1mpg.

zabooda My Jeep dealership sells them. As usual, still more expensive than anywhere else. They wouldn't put them on if it voided the warrenty.

On their website it says it will not void your warranty.

Not sure what it does for a 6 speed JK but, for an auto it rocks!
It comes with a 30 money back guarantee too, so you may want to give it a try & report back to us.

1badfish somebody put one on a 6 speed and tell me does it do anything! It's a dang shame that on a brand new vehicle one has to look for more power.
05-15-2010 08:17 AM
The Rube I installed my Superchips yesterday & I do believe it is one of the best modifications you can do to your Jeep JK.

On top of the added acceleration & other added features, the Jeep shifts 100% better than it did before.

It completely eliminates the "towing a parachute" feeling that you get on the express way while trying to maintain 70mph.

To anyone who is on the fence, GET ONE.

I rate this modification a 10 out of 10.

Its worth every penny.

i believe the superchips just askes you questions of what you have not what you changed, so it would change the settings to a new set instead of going up or down an amount to adjust therefore throwing it off... thats my understanding.

Bryans2000TJ Got my Superchips installed today. Noticeably more responsive, throttle lag is gone and shift points are higher on my auto. 2nd gear seems to stay in the power longer and better. I haven't really had a chance to try it other than just around town and not much past third, but it does seem to wake it up. It doesn't want to shift at 1500 rpm's like it normally does. I have a K&N in the stock box that has been there since mile 100. Sitting at 2800 miles now. So far, enjoying the mod. Paid $309 shipped from autoanything. They price matched Superchips.com $359 with $50 coupon code.

zabooda I got mine last week. I paid $285 at Truckcustomizers with a discount code.

Fred1 We are on our 3rd tank of 91. (didn't even try the 87 setting) It's a new Jeep! Passing on a grade is breeze without having to hit the red red line. +2 MPG. Throttle lag is gone. Shift points are perfect. Great on the rocky desert trails too. The Jeep seems to run better overall. It should have come this way from the factory. It doesn't seem to be pushing the engine or the transmissions limits (like my Ford diesels chip did) so I'm not worried about warranty issues. Time will tell.

chelsea3311 So has anyone actually got a dealer to answer the question whether the Superchip would void the warranty?
05-07-2010 09:04 AM
J.B. Just a little "cautionary note":

Quote:
For most Chrysler products, the warranty supplied with 2010 vehicles says that "any changes made to your vehicle that don't comply with Chrysler" can become a warranty issue.

Nick Cappa, head of engineering and technology public relations at Chrysler, said the policy is clear: "Aftermarket engine calibration modifications of any type may result in nullification of the vehicle's original warranty."
Also, when coverting back to "stock settings", the key counter (number of times you start your vehicle) reverts back to 0. Might raise a red flag when checking diagnostics.

I am in NO way against this product, I'm sure for some of you the benefits outweigh the "posible" warranty issues. Good Luck!

Did you run the 91 proformance tune? Could you tell a difference between the 87 tune and 91?

blaster199 The programmer can revert back to stock settings so when you bring it in that's a must. If you bring it in for anything other than something electrical I would imagine they would never know. If you bring it in for some kind of electronic or diagnostic reason then they may be able to see if it's ever been reflashed. It's worth taking the risk IMO
05-06-2010 06:05 PM
J.B. Just my thoughts! Talked to my dealer today about the Flashpaq. He thought the manufacturer might have some "real concerns" about reflashing the factory settings and warranty issues. You just might check into it for sure. I've been averaging 22.6 MPG, 55-60 MPH on our roads around here. Thats in 5th at around 2 on the tac. I'm happy with that! Good luck guys!

hillmonkey Sounds great! But I need to know about the manual transmission as well.

Bear with me guys because I'm new to al this Jeep stuff but is this basically like an ECU flash...like APR/GIAC/Revo for VAG? Does it void the manufacturers warranty? Is it detectable? Can you switch back to stock via the ECU?

I don't really need any more power but the better throttle response sounds real nice.
