Noobie from SoCal...first Jeep

Hello,

I am a first time Jeep owner. Just leased a WK2 Laredo X, V8, RWD, nav, tow, and sunroof.

It's actually for my wife, as I drive a Trailblazer SS.

I am not at all new to cars/trucks, prefer to wrench on my own, and looking forward to possibly improving the tune on the WK2.

I take it that HPTuners is a no-go for these?

Looking forward to learning more about these, and, perhaps, you all as well

Re: Noobie from SoCal...first Jeep

Thanks all.

I live on the Westside, where traffic never moves. Grew up in SFV, but wifey hates the heat.

Scott, those SRT8's are nasty. I have a TBSS (way better pricing in '08).

What's better, Diablo or Superchips? I have HPTuners for my Chevy (am I allowed to say that word here?), and I like the options, but I know they're slow getting the right codes for Mopar.
