5.13's and no complaints after 10k+ miles.

Added a supercharger a couple of weeks ago which increased the fun factor at least 10 fold.

I know - sucks. I'm about to run my first tank of 89+ with the SC. Hopefully things will improve a bit.

so just an update, finally pulled the trigger, and installed a BDS 2" coil spring lif kit (in addition to the front leveling kit I already had) .

I'm very happy with it so far!

my two concessions with this Jeep were the motor, and not getting the infiniti stereo.

the pentastar is just still too expensive, and trying to find the exact color/model I wanted in the limited production window seemed a daunting task.

Welcome. I was in the same boat, wanting a Mango Tango JKU. Once I regear, I'll lose a lot of the Pentastar envy that I'm feeling right now (gotta wonder what were they thinking when they paired the gearing in this auto tranny with 3.73 axle gears).
