I installed 37s and its a little bit noticeable off the line, but it still a hoot to drive and SUCKS down the fuel I'm averaging 11 but I have a mega lead foot and drive it hard.
I love power, my old 4cyl turbo had that kick, any turbo I've ever owned which currently I have 10 different trucks and cars with one and it is too much fun. I thought about adding more power but instead I have decided to order a supercharged hellcat track hawk.

But for now, and to feel that first punch with the 392 now that I'm running 37s maybe I should install 4.56 gears!?

There is nothing better than a turbo. Honestly I have no idea what the track hawk will be like but I bet it will be really fun with 707 ponies and eats a tank of fuel every 3 days..

Wrangler is a hoot for what it is, my old 4cyl seemed as punchy as this one. Anyone drivin the electric wrangler, I bet it RIPS

Thinking you should have bought a C8 if your not happy with the 392 in the Wrangler. If your only after the rush of the "punch". Its a lot lighter and will probably be more of what you are looking for. For me a normally asperated 6.4 is perfect in the Wrangler because well I wanted a Wrangler and the 392 is just all gravy for me and adds to the fun of the Wrangler. I have had Jeeps for a long time and prefer them to other vehicles.

If I just wanted fast in the same price range it would be a C8.
 
Gotta agree with @Asuperheat here... After all, it is a Jeep - a vehicle specifically designed for the trails and off the pavement, not for track. Though it may not impress like a track designed "Track Hawk" (as the name implies) the fact that it does 0-60 in 4..5 seconds and runs a quarter in 13 for a FACTORY STOCK vehicle with THOSE capabilities? Impressive. Most Impressive.
 
I thought Stellantis wasn’t putting the hellcat motor in Grand Cherokee’s anymore anyways. May look in to that unless you get a used one.

For a few dollars more you can bump up the ponies with an E85 conversion, tune and supercharger pullies replacement. The red lines on the dyno sheet are the before HP and Torque at the wheels of my TrackHawk The other results are at the wheels for 93 octane (dark blue) and E85 (light blue) with E85 producing the most of both HP & Torque at the wheeels.

Amazing!
 
For $299 and maybe less as I have seen some discount codes around here get the Pedal Commander PC78 instead of re-gearing and I bet you will be happy enough to save the money on the re-gear.

TRUST ME!! I am an HP guy also, my last car had 625 stock and 780 when I was done.
 
I did the tazer mini and pedal commander (lost acceleration after wheels and tires were installed). I keep it on Sport 0.... LOVING IT. My babee doesnt pause when I hit the gas anymore.... it freakin leaps into speed and Im doing 0-60 in 3.4. Amazing. Best mod, best money spent on my 392. Also got rid of the seatbelt chime with the tazer.... huge plus.
