Except in CA.
It doesnt meet the CA emissions standards.

I heard that this allows you to bolt a supercharger to your on board air so you can air up blown tires while driving down the freeway.. is this true?

I guess that is the price you pay for the wonderful weather year round. Guess I will be moving soon so I can have a chance to try it out on the new '12

I see how it can help, but in my opinion it is worthless if you did not rotate the air in your tires.
And don't forget to put back summer air in your tire at the beginning of April, very important.

I did a search with google and couldn't find any info. Will my d44's hold up to this mod or will I need to upgrade to d60's? Thanks in advance for any and all help in this matter.

^^^ Just like they all say...every Jeep is different. You may or may not need a BL with the Rubi after this mod.

I hope that this answers all, some, none or some of none of your questions!

I turned a friend on to this mod for his hummer. He wrote jeep on his key, and now he doesn't get stuck anymore, also people don't look at him strange for driving his hummer from the burbs to a nice flat parking lot at work. He is considered a serious off roader now. Thanks

Also be sure to upgrade your current key ring. Stock ones just can not handle the additional load. I used 1/4 in stainless wire. I will check it again after 1000 miles or so.

Will you please elaborate as to why?

Is it the added weight or the additional hp & torque that this mod yields?

Well it could have been the worn out key ring due to years of neglect and abuse. So I saw it fit to overkill it just a little. Every key ring is different. Country of origin of your key ring should also be taken into consideration.
