Re: Drivetrain "clunk" noise - 2014 wk2 srt

Let me know what the verdict is on this. Mine never used to make the clunk noise but now does mainly from 6 to 5 shift. My dealer had to replace rear drive shaft and transfer case a month ago due to...

Re: 14StormTrooper & JVM S/C Installs

Probably right. I went ahead and drained and refilled my oil just to make sure it was working right. I'm sort of OCDish. Anyway, these things DO NOT take 4 ounces of oil as instructions state. I put...

Re: 14StormTrooper & JVM S/C Installs

Good to hear. For some reason they put that extension on mine but it must have come with it. Will ask the guys at RIPP if the extension is necessary or what purpose it serves.

Re: 7 RIPP Kits running soundly

It's not bad at all on mine, hardly even noticeable. You'll hear a little when at idle and the air conditioner puts a little load on it. While driving, only thing you hear is the bypass valve when...

Re: 14StormTrooper & JVM S/C Installs

My assumption it was the breather plug with the vent brass fitting on top. Now I'm confused as I've looked at several pictures and don't see this additional bolt sticking out. My mechanic put it on...

Re: 14StormTrooper & JVM S/C Installs

Just for comparison sake. I've attached two videos. One is of just me turning the pulley on the unit with the belt off. This sound is normal- just hearing the rotation of the blades/gears. The 2nd...

Re: 14StormTrooper & JVM S/C Installs

Re: 7 RIPP Kits running soundly

I had the battery disconnected the entire time I did the install. So it's technically relearning now I assume.

Re: 14StormTrooper & JVM S/C Installs

Re: RIPP Needs one more local SRT Jeep

I'm in Eastern PA and would have taken mine to them on Friday but they wanted to hold it for two days to complete testing. Are they doing yours in a day turn around or holding it overnight?

Re: 295/45r20s?

My Toyos are extremely quiet. Starting to really enjoy them. You can tell the sidewalls are a lot softer. Definitely not a track tire for this heavy of a vehicle but good for daily driving.

Re: 295/45r20s?

The 305s might be a good option to consider. Especially since the stock Pirellis are 30.9 in diameter. All the other 295s are around 30.5. The stock Pirellis are also more squared off at the time...
