Help to get me in the 9's

Hey guys, i know i've been posting a lot of new threads on here, but I'm currently working on my jeep.

My current 1/8th mile times are 10.1-10.5. I'm lookin to get in the 9's so i can run against my friends mustangs and camaros. Any tips/tricks/parts that i should know of would be awesome. I go to the dragstrip about twice a month. and I'm looking to be in the 9's the next time i go. Keep in mind I drag RWD until i can figure out why when i'm in 4WD my car wont shift from 2nd for a few seconds.

Re: Help to get me in the 9's

Any bolt ons? Those would be the first place to start. CAI, exhaust, ported TB. Then get a programmer

I was thinking about getting a TB spacer and throw a CAI on. I'm not really good with knowing what to pick with jeeps. I'm a chevy guy, but i do love my jeep.

What CAI should i go with?

Throttle body spacers are useless. You need a ported TB, and get a 4" bwoody if you're looking for the best gains.

Thats what I like to hear. RiceEater will start destroying more than ricers lol. Honestly if my exhaust wasn't so loud i'd have the best sleeper within my group of friends. I can't wait to do all this.

And get a vibrant pink CAI just to throw people off haha.

Well rwd would be 2wd, what i meant was I havent seen one that can switch from 2wd to 4wd like the older xj's for example. Doesnt mean im right, but i havent seen a wk like that.
