    Avenger or Kenne Bell Supercharger is your best bet. I think there's a turbo kit available as well.

    Other than that, basic bolt-ons that you can get for anything else, intake/exhaust/header is a good start. short shifter if you're running an MT, and if you can swallow the cash to do both diffs, gears will give you really good bang for your buck.

    :rofl: but i don't think he wanted to do much off road. On road I'd stick w/ the basics until you really do some research. I like the idea of intake exhuast and headers to start off. Gearing both diffs would be pricey at least for me.

    ya it definitely will not improve your on road perfromance. That air travels a long way down the tube and take away horsepower due to lack of air. It is good for keeping water out if you drive through lakes tho.

    I have a 2004 wrangler with the 4.0

    I have had the stock intake, the stock intake with a k&n filter, the airaid intake, arb snorkel, and now an arb snorkel with k&n filter

    I must say out of all of the different setups the wrangler is still slow as shit :rofl: and its not worth changing. If you want it to make better gas mileage and a cool sound go with the intake.

    perhaps buying a vehicle that is shaped like stacked bricks wasn't the best idea for on-road performance.

    All the highschools in my area built up dragsters to race at a local strip, mine built an actually dragster type car, but another school turned a jeep into a racecar... don't really remember anything they did to it though.
