Get the SCT tuner instead . . . there's a sale right now. $375 gets you tuner plus unlimited tunes. Way better deal than a Mopar ECU.

I've also got CA's for 4.5" if you're interested.

i have no idea where to even start with tuning. im just gonna stick with the ecu from kolak for now.

and im staying away from 4.5" cuz i dont wanna mess with cas yet. once i do CAs ill just jump straight to front long arms instead of hassling with SAs

went offroading 2 saturdays ago or so. was driving so didnt get many pics

there was also a blazer and a land rover disco 1. the disco 1 was having a terrible time. to whoever says LRs are better than jeeps, think again. everytime it hit water it turned off and gave him hell, and the factory lockers wernt doing so hot.


i was playing pull out duty all day. never got stuck myself. everybody else seemed to tho lol



so my jeep currently looks like this

What did you replace the gasket with? OEM, Felpro, etc. Did you happen to put on the Hughes Plenum Plate?
