2894 miles with no top no problem

The weather gods were smiling on us for this 10 day road trip. We were able to go all 2900 miles without putting the top up. There were a couple of minor rain storms that we just toughed it out, but all in all we had beautiful weather for touring. The 43 F morning was a little nippy but the bread baking ability of the JKs heater and the soft doors made it tolerable even with no top.



The cruise control does not work with the supercharger hubby knew that up front apparently.

So here is the good, the bad, and the ugly of the MPG data. Results varied wildly depending on the drive and the driver:
  • The days I drove and we were meandering through sleepy fishing villages we got almost 19 MPG
  • When hubby was driving on the highway (75+ MPH) it dropped down to 12 MPG he also likes to wind out the gears to hear that distinctive whistle!
  • Overall, traveling 2900 miles, the trip average was just shy of 16 MPG.
Now the impression on performance . AWESOME! While it is not a race car and still handles like driving a brick the added boost makes it a lot more enjoyable. I cant begin to describe the increased power, snap back the head acceleration, the get up and go on hills, and the resulting ear-to -ear grins! A big thank you to RIPP!

Do you still have 4.10 gears or did you upgrade to 5.13s? Youll be even more impressed with 5.13s I bet.

IF you keep your foot out of it, and drive reasonable speeds, I've seen mine get up to 25mpg. IF you enjoy the Hell out of it, mpg will drop drastically. Overall, now with 5.38's and 37's, mpg are about the same as before I put the RIPP SC on it when it still had 4.10s and 32's.
Just depends on your driving style.
As for the power: I've spun 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear in my automatic (on 32's and 4.10s) with the RIPP SC.
Now with the 37's and 5.38s, I can only spin 1st and chirp 2nd.

We still have the 4.10. We stayed at a 2 1/2" lift and 35s so we wouldn't HAVE to regear. Will see how it handles crawling rocks and decide if that will be the next mod.

25 HOLY COW

I thought I was doing good with the meandering and 19 but then I kind of like to wind the gears out too!

LOL, 25 mpg was with the 4.10's and 32's. That's not going to happen with the 5.38's and 37's.
Just give it some time and learn to drive it with the SC, you'll see 3-4 mpg improvement....IF you keep your foot out of it.

One nice touch is screaming down the highway, the image of a JK on 37's filling up the rear-view mirror of some BMW.

Nice job guys, glad it worked out well for you. As stated before, if driven respectfully, you can get around 20 mpg. It can go south of there very easily. I've found that about 65 mph is the sweet spot for highway fuel economy, I get 20 mpg there no problem. Jump up to 75 mph and it gets pretty close to 10 mpg!

Just ordered a black ops SC for my 2011 JKUR COD. Hows yours running? Can you use cruise control? Hows your average MPG?
thanks

I've got a 2011 JKU Rubicon with 35's, 4.88's and the RIPP S2. I use cruise control with no issues. Mileage has gone up to about 20 for my commute which includes a lot of up/down hill and back roads. Power is OK.
