Not again .... There are several threads about the same topic already.

NO! They don't do anything. It's a waste of money. If anything, they will give you 5 more horses at a high rmp 4000+ but nothing at what we run our Jeeps normally.

No one reads stickies. Or at least hardly anyone does.

Bottom line, chips are (really) a complete waste of $$$ unless your Jeep is racing at the quarter-mile dragstrip. Around town or on the trail, a chip will not help at all. By Federal law chips are unable to change any engine parameters except at near redline rpms and wide-open throttle.

Save your $$$.

Your correct about the stickies, look at the Death Wobble one. There are still posts about it.
