Well, rephrase that. The only reason the SKIM was kicking on was because the key that was in there was just a hardware store cut copy. Like a hide away. Primarely to get into the Jeep if I lock my keys in there. Or in this case. Didn't have my keys on me and needed to get in the Jeep. Hahaha, could have some fun with the valet people. Maybe Ill try that the next time I go out to eat back home.

Tooled around with the "Torque" App for android. Ran some numbers
Best 0-60 was 10.3 seconds
1/8 mile was 12.21 seconds at 67 mph
Max HP (based on weight, etc) was about 160 HP... which seems about right? (if that is RWHP)

Put in the TPMS console to see it light up. (Yes, was that excited about it!) Gave me a nice "beep beep beep pause beep beep beep" when turned on and said, "Tire sensor missing etc"

Looks like I may have to redo the roof rails (that run forward back) because I did not rough them up before painting. (noob mistake, was so eager just went paint happy). The cross rails are fine, they have been painted once already.

I just want to RIDE in a v8 dub to know what it feels like. Surprisingly during those runs, I was still tossed back in my seat some. Those runs weren't at sea level like all my other ones, so they are a bit slower.

I want to do some runs with my superchip tunes over the summer and see if there is a difference!

I WISH I could own a H.O. WJ

I probably do. BUT, what has gotten me recently was that, even floored, I could not accelerate any more going up this hill. I was going on the highway got to this pretty decent hill. Doing 65, Started to bog down, kicked down to 3rd gear, and eventually could barely maintain 63 ish mph going up the hill when it was on the freaking floor. I was so upset that that was it, the Jeep has NO more. It was just disappointing, that it had no more. I could not imagine towing, or with 3.55 gears. If I was towing... ugh I dont even want to know.

I have cars, that is the problem on why feeling the need for more is... more power.

I may just have to re gear them. But I am not putting in anymore money to the 35 though. Gosh who am I kidding, will never have the cash for that. lol.

Welcome to the world of the 4.0. My ZJ behaved the same way going up the passes here, only it would drop a bit lower than 63. Sometimes I'd have to duck in and hang with the semi trucks a while until all the faster traffic passed.

Sounds like it's time for some bolt-ons!

Yikes, I am glad you at least understand where I am coming from. I have had it roaring in second gear for the longest time up a hill with a trailer before at 60 with the shifter in second

Are you serious about bolt on, or kidding? Haha. Just want to x2 check. Lol.

Well, I don't think that there's good return on your dollar for bolt-ons, but they do have effect on power. It'll be $1000 before you pick up 20hp (if even that much) but it will make a difference. I think what the WJ community is really missing out on is cams. Everyone does intake/exhaust/header/throttle body, but no one ever touches the camshaft, which would really make more difference than the rest of it combined. I find that funny.

Well I have been Goolging around on the internet and I have found a company called Comp Cams. They have a few for the 4.0's I just wonder if they will work with the WJ's. Most cams were for NON fuel injected engines...

This guy on youtube has a Comp cam in his WJ claiming about 25-30 more HP with the cam.

Did you read this thread? http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/...ilure-1357333/

Don't get a Comp cam. Get something else. That's not the first Comp cam failure to come through the forum. They seem to have some trouble getting the proper surface hardness on their lobes, they fail too often for me to confidently recommend using them.

I think calling up the guys at 505 Performance would be a good idea. Talk to them about your needs and they'll set you up. Something like this looks the ticket. http://www.shop.505performance.com/p...&categoryId=30

Just watched the video. That guy's Jeep sounds like frosted butts. At least when he's revving it. He's got a great combination of ricey intake whistle and tractor/diesel sounding exhaust.
