Edge Trail Jammer?

I have a K&N Cold Air Intake system already... would buying the new edge trail jammer module and throttle body be worth it? I am asking because I am unsure if it will make a significant change because I already have the intake system. Has anyone installed this product already? Please let me know.

I have not, but I highly doubt it would be worth the price. If your looking for more 'power' put your money toward gears.

I am running the Trail Jammer kit in my tj. I love the power that it gives me. I also have a homemade cai and and exhaust to help the air enter and leave the engine. It definately has alot more get up and go now. I also have been getting on average 2-2.5 more mpg. I can not wait to feel the power that I have after I regear.

Alot of people are going to tell you that you will get the same power out of a regear. But a regear does not add horsepower and torgue to the rear tires. It just makes what you have more usable.

Incorrect. Switching from 4.10s to 4.56 will add about 11% more torque to the rear wheels. Thats what gears do, they multiply your torque (which is what is needed for larger tires). What gears don't do is add horsepower to your rear wheels.

Your engine is still putting the same amount of torgue to the trans/transfer case and then to your rear. You are just making better use of the torgue that comes back. With the Trail Jammer I am putting more torgue to my trans/transfer case and then out to my rear.

I thought 4wheelparts had the best prices. Whoever you call and talk to get the best price, then call 4wheelparts and they will match or beat that price.

I always search online and find the best price and bring it in to 4wheelparts, I found the edge trailjammer (was with air intake too) for about 500 online and even though this is about 200 dollars cheaper than normal, 4wheelparts still honored it

Always check eBay first.

eBay doesn't always have the best prices, but it should be your starting/reference point. For the trail jammer, it will be the least expensive.

I have the trail jammer with a K&N and can tell you that it makes a noticeable power difference at WOT (wide open throttle) and at higher rpms (over 2700 to 3000). Otherwise, the only difference it will make is the throttle body will whistle loud and your acceleration will be somewhat more responsive.

I like mine, but if I were to do it over again, I would have first spent the money on re-gearing. Re-gearing to 4.56s made much more of a difference than the trail jammer. I had more power and my mileage improved by 3-4 mpg.
