    GF Performance Chip Kit

    Hey Jeepers! A friend of mine told me to look into these chips called GF Performance Chips from http://www.gfchips.com/jeepwranglerunlimited.aspx. It's goign for $69 but regularly $399 so I am a bit skeptical. I was wondering if anyone has this or has heard of them and can provide some feedback on the results obtained or a review of whether it's worth it or not. Thanks!

    BTW, It's for a 2007 JKU.

    If it's regular $399 and going for $69 that should tell you everything you need to know.

    Yep, sorry about wasting time on here.... Just got home from work and googled it for 5 minutes and found an overwhelming amount of terrible reviews lol

    ... Just looking for affordable solutions to gain some power back after adding a lift and larger tires. But this is definitely not my solution lol

    Have you re-calibrated your speedo? That will help a lot.

    How should I go about recalibrating the speedometer? I've read about the aev procal module, and there's also the dealer but they won't calibrate for 37" tires because that's not me of their stock options.... Any more suggestions?

    Procal. You have 37's with stock gears? 4.10's, 3.73's or 3.21's? Your issue is you are running 37's on stock gears with an un-calibrated speedo. Get the procal and that will help.

    3.5" lift, 4.10's... Saving up to re-gear next.

    I found a guy on Craigslist locally selling a used procal for $75. My understanding is that once you use it, you have to reprogram the jeep it was first installed on before it can be programmed with another vin. Do you know if theres a way that I can make sure the module they're selling would be able to accept my jeep's vin and I don't end up buying a brick?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
