Flashpaq on lifted jk w/35's

I thought I'd do a little review for people considering the superchip flashpaq. I Recently flashed my 2013 JKU with 3.21's. I have 35 in general grabber red letters and a RC 3.5 lift. I really don't want to do gears. It's expensive, and to find a good mechanic is tough. With that said, I'm happy with the performance tune so far. It definitely helped with low end torque. Enough to make it bearable. You don't have to ride the clutch so much to get going and I seem to be using 4th and 5th gear a lot more.

What year is your JK? Did you have any issues installing it? I seem to read where quite a few people do, but I've several that maybe have some minor issues but nothing big to deal with.

I am strongly considering the flashpaq for my '13 JKU since I will be putting 35s on shortly.

I'm glad you like the Superchips Flashpaq. It won't replace regearing, but if you can get a little extra power with the higher octane tunes, it does make it more driveable.

I would recommend the Flashpq when you get the 35's. As I stated above, it won't replace regearing, but will give you some power back with the big tires. There were some issues with installing them on the '14 JK, but you should be fine with your '13. Superchips has great customer service so I wouldn't worry about any issues. Let me know if you'd like a quote!

Do the gearing. Do the gearing. Do the gearing. After you have done that, then begin trying to add performance to the engine. Why would you spend money on "performance" mods to get it back to stock? Do the proper thing, do the gearing and get it back to stock then do the performance stuff and increase the performance of your vehicle.
Good luck to everyone.

600 dollars for a gear set with master install kit from Northridge4x4. Extremeterrain might have a similiar deal. I paid less than 600 dollars for the DEALERSHIP to install front and rear gears and an ARB locker in mine.
4wheelparts has a 1000 dollar gear and install deal on occasion. If you have one of those close by that might be an option. Desert Rat will also do it for a grand. There are options and they are not all north of $1000.

I wanted a calibrator because I do plan on doing gears someday. I'm sure people understand that the FP in no way, make up for the gearing change. I payed an extra $100 for the performance one, because, why not? Every little bit helps. Don't expect it to be anything more than a little bump. And I mean little. I was happy to feel some difference. I had no issues installing or using the features. It just takes forever to re-flash.

I've been through a few tanks of fuel. Seems like I'm getting 3-4 MPGs better.
