Is the supercharger for the 07/08 Jk worth the price? It's about $7,000 but it also saves you on gas. It also adds a whole bunch of ponys to your 3.8 V6. I honostly think it would be worth it, but what do you think? I have a 07 Rubi unlimited and well, it has the 4 speed automatic :bawling: so i guess it's ok but still. The pick-up isn't the greatest, then again the engine hasn't been broken in yet too. It also says on one of the websites such as hesco, that you should not pull anything heavy with it. I have a 16ft CUB camper hybrid and that weighs about 3,000 lbs. A 07 Rubi stock with the Dana 44 can pull upto 3,500 lbs. How would a supercharger make it not be able to pull as much? Anyway, I heard that it feels great driving with one so I'm debating wether or not to purchase one. The only thing is, I'm in my 20's so im not too too great with mechanics but I know the basics like changeing a wheel or tire, but how would I install it if I got it? So not only am I going to have to pay to purchase it, but to pay Midas a cuple hundred bucks to install it for me. Well, im going off topic a bit, anyway wold it be good too if you had a snorkle on the jeep? There are pros too, like you'll have alot more pick-up and have a higher top speed. I think it adds about 70 bhp so... :) Well, thanks for reading and I'll besure to add more reviews, Have a great day :bounce:

Ohh ok, so I should buy it then, ok cool. Yeah I wasn't sure about the towing warning so, but as redrock said that they are just saying that in case it does happen they don't get blamed or whatever :grinpimp:

Thanks Michael and Redrock ;), So when time comes to show, I'll buy the Hesco one, and the uniclip and other accesories :D

ohh only premium fuel? that kinda sucks :bawling: . Oh and on the website, it said "Don't Pull Anything Heavy" but redrock was saying that it just backs them up if you pull something greater than 3500 lbs (jeeps stock pulling weight with d44)thinking that your supercharger would help or something :laughing:

And can you like go in lakes and stuff with the supercharger and stuff? Even if you have a snorkle?

ok cool, so it won't be a big conflict with water then.

But, what about mud, let's say your out with your buddies wheelin and you see what appears to be a tiny puddle, and well it swallows your whole truck basically. Not only is it water, but it's mud? Would the ruin the supercharger?

Im pretty sure you pont ruin your engine pulling 2000lbs. I have a 3000lb trailer that I pull with mine, and I don't have the supercharger. Also Redrock was saying that they just say "dont pull heavy loads" just to cover your tail incase you blow up your engine thinking the supercharger maximises the max towing wieght (3500 lbs)
