New to the site

New to the site and forums but not to Jeeps. 2 CJ's (a'73 cj5 and a'79 cj7), 2 yj's (88 & 90) and now an '07 JKU. Only issue with the JK is a lack of power compared to the others, all were either stock or swapped in V8's. But a supercharger is on the horizon and gears in the near future. Meanwhile, I'm sitting on a 4" rubicon lift, 35" cooper stt's, fishbone offroad front and smittybilt rear bumper, and a few interior creature comforts. Thanks for having me-hope everyone has a great 4th of July!!

Welcome and keep us posted on the supercharger! Personally I’m always looking for a positive SC review for my own justification of how I’m going to “need” 1 tons and 40s with the added power lol but I will say that 5.13 gears and 37s ain’t bad so you may find a re-gear to be very suitable for your needs. Happy Independence Day to you too!

Welcome. I'm running a RIPP with the high alt pulley. Other than some issues that were not Rip[p's fault, I'm pretty happy with it.

'76 CJ-7, '43 CJ-2a, '78 Bronco,'78 CJ-7, '75 CJ-5, '78 CJ-7, '80 CJ-7, '78 SJ, '79 SJ, '78 and a '76 FJ-40 , '90 XJ, '91 XJ, '86 CJ-7, '95 ZJ, '68 CJ-101 Commando, '00 TJ, '68 M-715, 2 '86 Military Blazers, '96 LR Discovery, '86 CJ-7, '91 YJ, '99 TJ, 07' JKU Rubi, 1988 YJ, 1973 Commando, 3 Diesel Excursions....
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)
