What performance mods have you done?
 
OK
I've been getting into doing some performance mods to my rig and without spending thousands of dollars. This has been more of a "hobby" so to speak. Here's what I have bolted on so far....

K&N FIPK
Magnaflow Cat-back...without the cat (I say BS to those that say no cat makes no difference in power)
Bored out TBI to 63mm

Tried the Hypertec Power Programmer III and I thought it really sucked. Did nothing for me at all except trigger a check engine light.

Except for the Hypertec POS, I'm liking the mods I've done..very noticeable change in power and yet a little better gas mileage. :thumbsup:

What have you done so far? and what have you liked and not liked?

Under the Hood
- Magnum aFe® Stage 2 Intake System
- 62mm Throttle Body
- 63mm Delrin 3/8" Throttle Body Spacer
- Mopar Transmission Oil Cooler
- BANKS TorqueTubes® header/ 2000°F Hot Jet Coated
- Magnaflow 2.5" Polished Muffler/ Cat/ Double Wall Tip
- Dodge Dakota Rebuilt 140+amp alternator

The afe intake and 62mm TB were worth the investment. The banks header is pretty sweet too albeit pricey when you factor in the hot-jet coating and installation. The TB spacer is useless as was the Jet Stage 1 chip I just sold. The magnaflow muffler isn't bad, but if all goes well it will be replaced by some goodies fashioned by our resident turbo guru - Bryson.


Handling Upgrades
- 300MM PBR 2 Piston/Slotted/Cryo-treated Front Brake kit
- Teraflex Rear Disc Conversion
- Addco F+R sway bars
- Bilstein HD Shocks

I'm pleased with most every upgrade aside from some gripes with the teraflex kit. The rotors didn't come coated so the hats rusted within a week, and since the kit was originally made for TJs, it didn't come with any e-brake cables. The 300mm front brakes were worth the investment although I often wish they were cheaper. The cryo treatment on the front rotors was worth every penny... both the front and rear brakes were installed at the same time and whereas the rear rotor hats are rusted, the front rotors look good as new.

I looked at Addco's website and I'm a bit confused. It basically shows that they have both a rear and front sway bar replacement for XJ's but they're showing it's not for the Limited. I can't understand that as I don't see where the XJ limited would be any different?
