Hey guys! Has anyone tried supercharging a JT with a manual trans yet? I understand that this is not the most rugged manual trans in the world... I also know replacing the clutch ahead of time will be a must. I am curious if you were easy on and just rolled into the throttle, not launching it, if it might be a decently reliable set up or if you just sank 8-10k into a grenade lol

Have you changed gears yet ? Going to 5:13 gears with a light set of 37 inch tires and rims on my manual JTR solved all my power needs. The torque multiplication with 5:13s is pretty great.

I havent even recieved my truck yet! Hahaha, it comes in March. Just curious on the experience people had if they tried. Re-gear would be my first choice as well, but damn a supercharger would be cool!

Once you do the 5:13 gears, I doubt you will crave the SC. The difference in power/torque is substantial.

Can anyone recommend the gearing ratio for me if I want to eventually run 37s or 38's. I don't do any highway driving so I never shift to 5th or 6th nor do I want too unless needed. I have the 6 speed with 3.76 gears.
