Supercharged JK
 
As some of you may know, Innovate Motorsports is now in the Supercharger business having bought the North American rights to Sprintex Jeep and FRS systems. As one of the first Innovate/Sprintex Supercharged Jeeps our Jeep has covered a lot of ground since we started in August and while it has been a screamer with the stock setup and the supercharger it lacked a little eye appeal. So we thought we would do a simple build that would be similar to what most of people do to their Jeeps. Tires, wheels, lift, bumpers, lights, etc.
This is our starting point, a 2010 JK Sport.

First we started with the Bumpers. We chose Paramount units for the front and rear. The front was selected due to the integrated lights and stubby style. This is a model 51-0308L.

The rear bumper is the sport model. The tire carrier is integrated. I liked it because of the X cut out for Sprintex. We may light that in the future.

Paramount has also been tapped for the 50 light bar and roof rack. The light bar is slated for install later this week.

The next step is the suspension. I went with the BDS System, it has 5.5” of lift so I can get 37’s if I want. This is a brand new long arm that promises plenty of twist.

Given that this requires some welding I took it to Custom Off Road, I am so glad I did. The system was the first off the assembly line and there were a couple of issues I would not have caught had it not been for those guys. So Big thanks to Marco, Todd and Jerry, I appreciate the expertise on the install. Here are a few photos of this portion of the build.

Of course you have to read the directions, I would never look at the wall poster.

And here it is with the old wheels and tires. It really needs some new shoes at this point.

Nice job, guys. Jerry's crew is difficult to beat! You should've just gotten your "new shoes" while you were there. Post pics of the bumpers installed!

Along with the HIDs I got a 50 light bar from Paramount.
Can you say" Night Wheeling?"

We are going with 5:13s to compensate for the 35 tires and to allow for 37s to 40s in the future. The RPM curve will be shifted a little high at highway speeds. Instead of 1950 RPM at 70MPH it will probably be around 2500. The axles are 35 spline to go with an air locker which I dont have yet :banghead: so it will be a couple of weeks to get it installed.
