I've owned and driven fast cars, this jeep seemed doggy to me. I turned off the traction control tonight and I gotta say, 1sr gear is impressive! This thing will shred tires on command,with ease. Did the jk's? I've only driven customers jk's so I've never really ran one hard.

I only started turning traction control off on my jk (pentastar) after supercharging it... mine's auto but it now spins wheels even at 40mph and sometimes higher just when I floor it suddenly... not complaining :)

The JL is definitely more zippy than the JK. Once I get more than a few hundred miles on my Jeep I'll try it. I did chirp my tires going into third when I let my clutch out too fast.

Talk to me about the supercharging: HP increase, MPG if known (or if that matters, LOL), and obviously cost.

Since it’s been raining here in Maryland for like a month now I’ve been drifting my Jeep around every corner I take...it’s a blast!

Got in the Jeep last night and turned traction control off... woohoo!! That is fun, all the power going right to the wheels unhindered. I wasn't able to burn out but was able to make it chirp going around a turn. I don't know if I have the balls to drift it in the rain though.
Shared my excitement with the Mrs... she didn't get it, LOL.

Yeah, it's off most of the time for me (the button is right next to the auto off, so it's a habit to hit both). But there is some stability control that gets in the way if you start drifting too much, which can get in the way of having some real fun.
