Video: JMS PedalMax Install And Review

There is a good chance, that if you are driving a newer vehicle, the accelerator pedal is connected to the motor electronically. Known and “Drive-By-Wire”, the newer systems are very intertwined with the onboard computer system. Having the skinny pedal connected through the computer allows the system to know more about how you are driving and what is going on with the vehicle.

The downfall to the “Drive-By-Wire” design is the inherent lag between pedal movement and engine response. JMS Chip and Performance set out to correct that with the PedalMax. In the video above, the Off Road Xtreme team tested the system out on a JK Wrangler. The video also goes through the easy plug and play installation.

The PedalMax gives the driver the optional to adjust just how quick the throttle response is.

The PedalMax is available for many crs, trucks, SUVs and UTVs, some as far back as 2008. Both gas and diesel engines can reap the rewards of faster and adjustable throttle response.

Benefits

  • Utilizes OEM-grade Connectors
  • 100% water-proof enclosure and connectors
  • “ON the FLY” – Adjustable control knob
  • Improve Throttle Response
  • Increase Acceleration
  • Eliminate Turbo-Lag

Other features include a warranty-friendly installation, advanced user throttle control via the included control knob, and  it doesn’t require a customization to the vehicle’s tubing or programming. JMS also states the kit can be used in conjunction with aftermarket programmers and monitors.
