SEMA 2013: Superchips Jeep FlashCal and TrailDash

Jeep enthusiasts are notorious for modifying their vehicles, whether it’s to make them into hardcore trail, dirt, or rock machines, or transforming them into capable performers that can comfortably handle the daily commute, but provide a little fun for getting away from the paved world for some time with mother nature.

This past summer Superchips released their FlashCal product for Jeeps. This product allows for adjustment of settings for larger tires, or adjustments to correct the speedometer, like to compensate for different gears in the differential. FlashCal is ideal for enthusiasts not looking to change engine performance parameters, but simply needs to make sure things are reading correctly for more minor changes.

TrailDash is Superchips’ flagship product for the Jeep line. This product offers a variety of programming features available for Jeeps on other Superchips products, as well as serving as a touchscreen monitoring system for in-cabin display. In addition to displaying the typical PID information from the OBDII connector, the system also displays information such as an inclineometer. The information being viewed is fully customizable making the Trail Dash a versatile tool for Jeep owners who want to keep a close eye on their vehicle’s functions as well as update the performance and compensate for changes in tire size and differential gearing where it may affect the speedometer reading.

Additionally the Trail Dash can also adjust various functions on the fly, giving it more utility. Superchips’ Tom Bennett gave a good example of when this could be useful, “Say you’re running spotlights, at night, and you’re running the air conditioning at the same time, you’re idling, and you’re helping a buddy at the same time, because he’s got a flat tire. The idle comes down, and with changes in load the lights may flicker and dim, you can set the idle higher, and the engine will run a little faster, lights stay brighter and owners can get out on the trail.”

Spending more time enjoying their Jeeps and keeping an eye on how they’re running as well as customizing and modifying them is what Jeep owners love to do. These and other Jeep products from Superchips can help owners maximize time spent enjoying their vehicle. These products are approved for sale in all fifty states, and Superchips stands by that statement even making the information readily available for their customers.
