May I suggest you to read the forum a lot and check the builds threads and advices of peoples here before you spending money on parts.

You will make no mistake and save your money !

Just an exemple, I bough the Teraflex 2" spacer lift and installed Bilsteins shock front and rear. Thats before I knew the Old Man Emu lift give 3" of lift and more suspension travel... (more expensive but wort it)... Now I regret to have not spend my money on the OME lift first !

You will also have to chose which wheel and wheel spacer combo you want, depending on the tire you will buy, depending of the lift you will buy...

So, my recommendation : read alot before you use your credit card !

For 300 $ or less (maybe you can find a used unit), you can have the Superchip flashpaq 3875 programmer.

I have this programmer since a year. I changed my tire size and used the performance 91 octane. There is a milleage tune, a towing tune, etc. and a Trans app with which you can change ****ing schedule.

If you can wait, Superchips planned to release the new Vivid programmer so when it comme out, there will probably be more used flashpaq 3875 unit available. For a new unit, the best price are from Kolak, a seller here.

Some people here use the Diablo Sports programmer.

if you have a 5.7 hemi, i would probably go with the diablo tuner rather than the superchips. the diablo is used by the SRT guys and they love it. if you dont plan on taking it offroad THAT much i would look into bwoody 4" air intake.

sorry i know youre a girl, i was just trying to help lol. also those $60 chips cause more trouble than they are worth. with a programmer like a superchips and a diablo- you can adjust your speedometer to accomodate the change in tire size as well as tune the vehicle to your liking.

nah you can do it yourself, plug it into the obd II port under the dash on the drivers side, pick your tune, download it to the jeep, unplug it and youre good to go.. pretty easy
