RIPP Supercharger w/ York Compressor

So I ordered a Ripp Supercharger for my Jk 3.8L. I am currently running the York engine driven compressor on it. Does anyone know what size belt I need? I remember seeing someone was running it with the Ripp but cant find it. Also I am running the PSC High Volume PS Pump as well. When I talked to Ripp they said they had no info for the belt length for my setup.

Depending on the pulley locations, this may or may not work. If the supercharger will extend the belt the same regardless of your modifications, then figure out what belt length the supercharger uses and subtract OEM length. That's how much longer the belt needs to be than what you have right now.

Does not work if the whole belt path changes how it interacts with your modifications so think through it of course.

I know it will as I have seen it done. Ripp also knows it will work but just donít have specs on it.

I ran both a York and a RIPP SC in my old 07 JKU. I just used the string method to get the length close. Just run a string through the belt path and subtract a bit for the tensioner compression. IIRC, it took a couple of trips to get just the right size.

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)
