Started the RIPP supercharger install

Just a quick update for those who have been asking or are interested in installing the RIPP supercharger kit themselves. Picked my kit up last Thursday and started the install with a friend this morning in my garage. First couple of steps are to replace spark plugs and fuel injectors. Skipped those for now..wanted to get the front end off and really get into the good stuff. Front bumper removal is a little tricky especially in the corners where it meets the fenders. RIPPs instructions are a little confusing in how to seperate the two but I took some pics and wrote down a few things I am going to forward to them to make easier for everyone else. After that a bunch of harness' get disconnected a few clips removed and the upper rad support moved out of the way. I hit my first snag with the only step I was dreading. The kit comes with a guide and bolt for pinning the crank pulley so there is no chance of it slipping under boost. First step was removing the crank bolt..not an easy task..tried a pry bar and breaker bar..no luck...couldn't keep the crank from spinning. Then I used a 3/8 pneumatic impact gun I have...crank didn't spin but neither did bolt. Lol. I walked away for a few minutes to clear my head and came back with an idea. Worked perfect I took (2) 3 inch bolts I had laying around and just put them thru two of the three smaller holes in the crank pulley. With that I was able to take my pry bar and put it between the two bolts and put the plastic handle under the AC compressor pulley..put a breaker bar on my 13/16 socket and with a little grunt it broke right loose. A little tuff to visualize so I took a good pic of the setup. Highly recommend as it worked like a charm. Got all excited to put the guide on and drill hole..then I hit my next snag..RIPP gave me the wrong size crank bolt to hold the guide in place (mine is metric fine thread..the one they supplied is coarse thread) and you can't use the one you removed because it has a splined washer you can't remove and that is in the way. Anyway..I will straighten that out with RIPP tomorrow. Moved onto the next steps of swapping out a power steering line, mounted the supercharger base bracket to the power steering pump, and mounting supercharger and support brackets. So far I have about 4 hours wrapped up in the project and once I receive the right bolt..I am expecting probably another 4 or so hours to finish it up. Will give updates thru out the week. Plenty to do while I am waiting on the correct crank bolt. Hope this helps ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1401150145.792499.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1401150161.486514.jpgcorner bumper clips ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1401150182.385998.jpgfront bumper removed ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1401150212.378530.jpgsetup I used to remove crank bolt ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1401150242.676252.jpgdifferent crank bolts ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1401150276.355089.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1401150286.037233.jpg blower brackets and blower mounted

Mike, thank you very much. I don't have an icon that allows me to add a "thank you for this useful post"....I guess I don't have enough posts yet.

RIPP Superchargers is a splendid one to behold
Re: Started the RIPP supercharger install

Thank you Mike -

we are sorting out the crank bolt at the moment and will have a corrected bolt ASAP- Sorry about that, it seems we ordered the correct bolts, but have taken delivery of 30 wrong ones. Our In house tools used during install are fine thread like yours - so the mistake was in the delivered goods.

- We will work on the Bumper instructions to try and soften the steps

This is why we like to soft launch new kits, thanks guys
