Why no mopar skids? According to this picture, that leaves a lot of room for damage underneath. Did you just not see the need? I'm just wondering... makes me think maybe that I don't need all of those skids either!

lmao. I'm only one guy with two shallow pockets, lol.

There's no question these skids are useful, but Mopar is a bit on the expensive side. But to answer your question, I am actually putting on armor based on my experience on the trail. This is how you Should do it.

xcase and fuel tank I will eventually armor. They were just last because they are not nearly as vulnerable as they were on the ZJ's. Xcase sat pretty low on them. Fuel Tank is in a far better location on the WK than the ZJ... wheeling or not.

Air Ram Power Wire finally came in. Very excited. I was telling Sal, I didn't drive the WK all weekend, most of the power mods I did to it I completely forgot. So when I popped in my power wire and took it for a drive, I can really start to feel the cumulative effect of the programmer, power wire, and exhaust. Feel's pretty good. Pics below.

I love toys that come in the mail in white or brown boxes.. But I Prefer the brown boxes (they're bigger)




That gray plug is the one I pull out and pop the power wire between


Plugged in 15 second job


More MPG's, More Power.


They are also available for the Hemi and 4.7

it causes the the PCM to read temp from the air signal 20 degrees colder than it actually is and makes the PCM advance the timing which generates about 8-10 additional HP.

Yes, it will improve mileage up to 2mpg's if you are a light-foot. But you will loose MPG if you drive on WOT (Wide open throttle), which makes sense. I think I gained about 1more MPG in the city.
