BUY THEM! hahaha

EDIT: I need more power, helpz! I have a hard time maintaining 70-80 mph going up hills without basically flooring it on the highway! And the cruise control is two retarded to kickdown until I put it to the floor or press the little button! And you seem to have more luck with your 4.0!

missed your edit

but i hada do some flooring driving up hills in PA ..i would suggest not using cruise control (i forget i even have it most of the time)

if you want some more power i would get an CAI and exhaust setup

when i first got my jeep i bought a K&N drop in air filter and it improved my throttle response a good amount! ..since the first day i had my jeep home i always felt a little lag going from idle to 1000+rpm and the drop in filter surprisingly did the job now i have my homemade CAI which has been working good too

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

hmm.. do you have your superchip set to you exact tire size and gear ratio?
that could be messing with your mpgs if there not right

but a nice flowing exhaust setup should give you some of the power your looking for

Superchips is set to the 87 tune and 29.5 inch tire size. I think it has been off for a while... I can not remember to be honest.

I need a CHEAP intake/exhaust lol

I am not sure how I could deal with the tire noise. I am picky! Is your EVIC Avg MPG's closer to what your by hand calculations are?
