I always thought (as per what I have read) the Jet chips were junk, so I have stayed away from them...has this changed?

I checked on their site, doesn't show a unit for 99's with 4.7 only 4.0, but 2000 and up they have em for 4.7's

That sucks...maybe I will give them a call, I don't know what would be different from 99 to 2000.

Started a Jeep only aisle at my school and it was quite a hit. We have almost filled up the entire row and are making non-jeep owners very envious. Who said segregation is completey wrong?

I updated my post with pics, The cable kept slipping off the pully wheel at the top when the drivers window was up or down. I think if it was a passenger window it would have had less use and lasted longer.

My Jeep uses the gas your hybrid saves.
