because the engineers at jeep get paid to make an engine run to its best and most reliable state, because i would say 75% of wk owners out there are soccer moms or older people who have no need to retard their timing, as mrtosh said there are possible setbacks on a hot summer day that we take the chance of running these mods ... almost like tossing a shot of nos on a motor not built to handle a shot... is it a risk? yes.... are they still going to sell it? yes....

doesnt mean it wont stop me from putting a powerwire on hahaha .... thatll be next on the list as long as theres a good review on these things

Plus, these babies come equipped with Forteras. They probably want to meet a price point and get these out there to do whatever the he(( we want with them.

Got my factory tow hooks in the mail, can't wait to get them on.

And it stalled on me AGAIN while I was leaving work. I have run out of ideas of what it can be.
