I have the HD brakes from the factory, if your looking to upgrade skip them for something better since your buying stuff anyways.

Well there's room to improve even on the Brembo brakes. Carbon/Ceramic pads and 8 piston calipers like an F1 car is but an example. However, HD brakes do represent an improvement, adding a larger diameter disc on the front and venting on the rear. Heat dissipation is important in urban stop and go traffic. Factor in uprated pads (e.g. Hawk HPS or HP+) and brake fluid (e.g. Motul) and one can easily shave 10 feet or more in braking distance. I will upgrade to the HD setup myself when time comes for new brakes.

This. How about we stick to talking about the supercharger kit instead of arguing about other unrelated upgrades?

Agreed Dcorn, GMGC2014's thread has gotten hardcore hijacked! Haha

I'm happy with the Ripp kit, but really looking forward to the stage 2! Sometime this "winter" I'll hit the drag strip to get some times with the base kit.

Re: RIPP supercharged 6+ month update/review

Well well well got my jeep back and yes it's all been taken care of....the guys over at RIPP Superchargers in Staten Island had some issues with it (year 2012), but got Diablo directly involved and supercharged and moving along (just a lot faster than before). ExTrEmLy happy and satisfied!!! I'll be posting some pics soon. You guys should check them out www.rippmods.com knowledgable, and beyond excellent customer service! Now yes the question does come up brakes brakes brakes, currently I have the original discs and pads on it and I got 65,500 miles out of them....not to bad. So hawk? EBC? Stick with the stock....it does have the heavy duty breaks due to have the heaviest tow package jeep offers.....decisions decisions decisions...any thoughts?

Congrats on the blower, but did you read any of the thread? lolStill have the stock brakes at 65k miles? I'd say you're due for new pads at the least, maybe new rotors as well. I'd go with EBC truck/SUV or Hawk HPS pads and either Brembo or powerslot replacement rotors. Don't get drilled and you don't really need slots, but if the price is right, might as well. Again, you don't need to upgrade your brakes, but if you're replacing the stock stuff anyway, might as well get something a tad better.

Re: RIPP supercharged 6+ month update/review

Yeah that's what I'm thinking....pads and rotors all in one shot....they do feel warped. I was looking into the yellowstuff or redstuff. And regard slotted/drilled. They do have "dimpled" and slotted, I was thinking regular discs (non slotted/non drilled/non dimpled). And match it with the greens or yellows....we'll see. What I've prices out is running like $700-$900....just parts.

What is the stage two kit? I have the SC for the 5.7 but I've never heard of a stage two for the 5.7.

Re: RIPP supercharged 6+ month update/review

I would call it gen2 and it is very early in development. It is the larger intercooler, larger injectors and a new tune running 11psi. It definitely wakes the car up and we are still working through some small drive ability issues. My jeep will be going back in next month to finish up the tuning aspect. I would say they probably won't release until early summer of 16.
