    Do you have the 3.8 or 3.6? I have the 3.8L w/auto and the flashpaq. I run premium fuel and the tow tune for best results.

    I have the 3.8. I used the performance 91 tune yesterday. Definitely better than stock. Throttle response off the line is better and the shift points are better. I hadn't thought of using the towing tune. How does it act?

    I put the take off shocks and springs on the front last night. I noticed while I was doing it that the springs were not stock. Results... It rides better but I have a rake. I'm going to put the old springs back in here soon. The rear has stock shocks and springs so I'll replace both back there.

    If you or anybody is interested, I have the factory Rubicon springs and shocks from my "11" JKU available and would be glad to give them to anybody that wants them. They have about 1700 miles on them.

    I've got a set now Like I said, I think the rancho front springs (not shocks) are going back on to get rid of the rake. I'll put the new '14 ones in the back though. Red Rubi shocks all around again. Rubi springs in the back and Rancho springs in the front.

    People on CL are asking between 100 and 125 for the takeoffs. My guy was asking for 100 and I got them for 70.

    You'll have to try it. Improved throttle response on the low end (think they're just playing with the throttle positioning), doesn't try to upshift so much. Try it for yourself. Interested in your feedback.

    Impressive transformation. You converted the 4 door into a 2 door!
