Just supercharged my 2002 TJ

I spent Thanksgiving weekend slapping a Jon Bond Performance supercharger kit on my 2002TJ. For anyone who is saving money to re-gear I HIGHLY suggest keep saving a go with forced induction. My set up is 4" lift with 33's and 3:73 gears 44 rear and 30 front. I had absolutely no 5th gear before this install. Now I have pull all day long in 5th. My boost set up is a 8lb pully and tuned to 5lbs right now using a Split Sec solution. I can't believe the power this thing adds at low boost. So if your on the fence, do it.

Man I had a 2004 ford lightning with a magnum powers blower (larger case than stock).

When you put your foot down the boost ramp was instant. I could leave most cars behind on the street due to perfect traction and just a shit ton of low end torque.


Point being, I absolutely can believe the low end grun with a roots blown 4.0L

Probably can crawl up a mountain!

Well, to each their own. But, people often over look building their motor. Even if you re-gear you need horsepower to apply the torque to the gears. With out adding displacement, forced induction greatly off sets gearing issues. I was weary about adding forced induction, I thought and researched this a year before I pulled the trigger. Caught between Banks, Sprintex and Jon Bond. After Sprintex actually advised me to contact Jon Bond, I decided to make do it. A re-gear is a simple way to recover lost torque. But still it's does not buy you any more horse power. This kit was really easy to install. It's pretty straight forward. It took a bit longer because the belt they sent me was the wrong size. But that was a easy fix. Stated right up and runs really clean. I changed the factory water pump and thermostat and plugs during the install. But it was really easy.

Awesome setup. How long did it take you to install it?

Set up time all from first bolt to first drive. Was 12 hours. BUT there was a belt issue and the parts store was closed. I could do this in 3-4 now without parts store runs.

A supercharger would be fun but I'm not sure if it justifies me to keep lying to my insurance....

Tell us how she holds and give us updates. I'm curious how much that thing is going to impact your mpg, for better or worse.

I was running around 11 mph before now I'm running about 13.5 out of boost. That's the biggest problem.
