Building our 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL: Baseline Dyno

Obviously, before our calibrations team can really dig into a new platform, we have to know what we’re starting with. With that in mind, we needed to get the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL on our Superflow chassis dyno to see just how much that little 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo can produce. With the baselines recorded we can move on to the lift, tires, bumpers, winch and SC branded wrap for this Wrangler® JL. It’s got to be dressed to impress when our marketing and event campaigns kick off, but first we want to talk horsepower.

On the Superflow chassis dyno in our Ogden, UT facility, the completely stock 2.0L Wrangler® JL made 231hp and 310ft-lbs of torque. Jeep® rates this 2.0L engine at 270hp/290tq flywheel. Taking a 15% drive train loss into consideration (229.5hp), our 231 wheel horsepower seems pretty accurate. 310lft-lbs of torque is quite surprising however. Jeep® is either very conservative on their 290tq claim or that quick spooling turbocharger just runs really strong here. We expected to see closer to 245ft-lbs at the tire from this power plant, so 310ft-lbs is great!

 

 

Paired with the 8-speed automatic and the factory Rubicon 4.10 gears, this combination is actually quite sporty around town. There is some slight lag off idle, but that can be taken care of easily with the addition of our Amp’d Throttle Booster (p/n 48868-JT). While the Amp’d doesn’t add any power to the 2.0L turbo engine, it definitely brings that power band on sooner making it feel even more peppy for day to day driving. For an interesting comparison, we dyno’d our 2019 Wrangler® JL with the 3.6L V6, and it produced 204hp/220tq in stock form. So those of you concerned about performance from a ‘little 4-cylinder’, you may need to take a second look at Jeep’s® 2.0L engine. With our up and coming tuning support for the 2.0L Turbo, is that naturally aspirated V6 going to become a thing of the past? We don’t think so, but the 4-cylinder will be holding it’s own in the market for sure.

Building our 2020 Wrangler® JL: Graphics

This week, our graphics team has been working on some renderings of our 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL project. With our plans of releasing tuning support for the 2.0L turbocharger applications soon, we needed a vehicle ready to make a big splash on launch. This JL needs something that’ll pop and take the Bikini Blue paint scheme up a notch. As the new marketing campaign vehicle for Superchips, we want to make the right statement and stand out in a crowd. This Wrangler® JL Rubicon is going to be used in our advertisements, YouTube videos and taken around the country to different shows and events (assuming COVID-19 restrictions allow) and the factory look just won’t do.

The general opinion around the office here is that we should go Retro. Get back into the 70’s with a Scrambler look, maybe some old school side stripes. The paint color on this JL Wrangler® already draws attention in traffic, so how to make it better?  Since that hard top is being swapped out for a black Bestop Trektop, maybe some blacks and grays will tie it all together nicely? But then we question playing along with the metallic in the paint and go totally ‘bass boat’ on the graphics scheme with even more bright colors. We’ve got the 3.5″ Readylift suspension kit and some massive 37″ Fury tires on 20″ Anthem Off-Road wheels, so big and bold will be the theme here. We have a few options drawn up but narrowing it down has been tough. The marketing team knows which way they’d go, but we aren’t just building this Jeep® for us. What do you guys think? The Wrangler® JL is scheduled for a wrap install with our friends at Buzz Graphics soon and we need your help. Bounce over to our @superchips_official Instagram and Facebook pages, shoot us a message with your thoughts and opinions.  Maybe you’ll win yourself a swag pack for helping us narrow it down.

So what’s it gonna be? Black and grey stripes? Yellow and orange stripes? Matte or metallic? Either way, you know this thing is going to look killer with our laundry list of parts bolted on and we can’t wait to get this thing out in the woods for some crawlin’.

Building our 2.0L 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL

 

Quarantine 2020 may have spoiled our Easter Jeep Safari fun and postponed Jeep Beach a few months but we won’t let all that ruin our plans on the build-up of our 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL. As a new vehicle to the Superchips fleet, this 2020 JL Rubicon runs the 2.0L turbocharged engine and will be the test mule for our engineering team for R&D and calibration development. We want performance tuning coverage for this engine platform and this will be the Jeep® to help us get there. While we use our fleet vehicles in the shop to develop new tuning and calibration features for our product lines like the Flashpaq, Trail Dash 2 and Pulsar modules, like you, we are all enthusiasts at heart. Testing our products in real world situations is key. Lucky for us, real world testing for a Jeep® means we get to spend time off-road. Crawling the rocks in Moab. Navigating rutted up muddy roads in the woods. Maybe even pushing some snow with the bumper on some mountain pass in the spring. Plus, this particular Wrangler® JL will make a great platform for our marketing team to  get out to events and shows to showcase everything Superchips has to offer the Jeep® crowd.

The Build Plans

The factory Jeep® Wrangler® JL Rubicon is a pretty capable off-road machine, but we all know how much aftermarket support is available for these. With so many options, it makes it easy to build something better suited for your specific needs. Like our customers, we want to be able to use our Jeep® for more than just a daily commute across town. We have every intention of getting this thing out in the sticks and that means stock just isn’t going to cut it much longer. So here’s the introduction to a 2020 Wrangler® JL build, we’re planning to document the process, share it with you, and hopefully get some input from you followers on where to go next.

We’ll be working with some of the best in the business on this project and already have a pile of parts here waiting to be installed. For suspension we’re going with a ReadyLIFT 3.5″ Terrain Flex 2-arm kit so we’ll have enough clearance for some 37×13.50R20 Fury R/T tires. We have a set of bumpers from Expedition One at powder coat, along with a set of their matching rocker guards for some cab protection when crawling. . To aid in off-road recovery, Comeup USA set us up with their Gen 2 winch for that new front bumper. Superchips LIT LED’s will be added for extra lighting at night and Artec Industries custom mounts will help make that an easy install. We also have a set of Artec’s front and rear inner fenders for additional tire clearance. To break up some of that shimmery Bikini Blue, the paint matched top is being replaced with a wicked cool fastback Bestop Trektop. Our graphics team is in the final stages on creating a vehicle wrap too.

Wrangler® JL Performance Upgrades

On the performance side of things, of course there will be a host of Superchips stuff finding it’s way in to the build, including our newly released Amp’d Throttle Booster for the 2.0L Turbo, maybe a Flashcal for tire size adjustments, and as we continue to progress in the launch of performance programmers we’ll get this thing tuned up as well. We have some tricks up our sleeve for a new cold air intake and we’ve got some love for the exhaust side with a Flowmaster Force II axle back kit. We’re going to start getting pretty open and honest on our experiences with this Jeep® Wrangler® JL build. Baseline dyno charts and video to share, installation pictures with some tips or tricks to make your own installs easier, and hopefully you can help us with some tough decisions like what we’re going to name this thing. Plus, all of this will make a great excuse to giveaway some swag or and SC product to you guys following along the way!
