  1. Power issues on 2010 JKU; Gear ratio change, should I or not?

    JK Tech Forum
    A little over a year ago in Colorado I had some serious power issues while driving in Colorado. My Jeep would be fine until I hit a hill and then the RPMs went up and my speed went down significantly. I've still noticed some power issues not on hills and want to address this. The engine is in...

    YJ Tech Forum
    I have an 89 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L 5-sp manual. Replaced the alternator with a 78 amp and now I don't get proper volts as measured at the dash gauge. It went from steady at 14 with the old one to more like 8-9 with the new. Things like wipers and blinkers are now slooooow. The old Delco-Remy alt...

  6. 3.8 Magnuson Supercharger?

    JK Tech Forum
    For my budget any swap is out of the picture. However I noticed that the magnuson blower is only 4k, makes more than the sprintex, and is roots so all the power is lower than the RIPP centrifugal. My 3.8 needs a rebuild soon anyway and paired with the RIPP headers I see it making upwards of 240...

    Hello I have a 2008 JK 2 door Wrangler X. He's got 131K miles on him already. Only thing I don't like is the jeep seems to be lacking power. What are some mods I can try to add some HP without breaking the bank?

    2013 JKUR. Over the weekend, I had no electrical power at all. Inserted the key and no chimes, no dash lights, no starter, no nothing. I was surprised because I had replaced the battery just three months ago. I called AAA and got a 45 minute response estimate. So, I'm just sitting there...

    My '91 has been squealing lately (mostly when I first start it) and when it does, the power decreases and the battery indicator shows it falling down to the red.
