    Please don't.
    You have your engine to lose if the chip screws with your ecm mapping. What brand of chip was that? If you're going to go that route, buy something that's been out there and proven for a while. Don't buy some no name hack job that leaves potential to screw up your engine. I wouldn't expect any noticeable gain from a "chip" upgrade on these engines either.
    You'll gain no power from either of those. In fact, that electric super charger has you plug up the intake with that fan. Same idea as the tornado back in the day. All it's going to do is kill your horsepower.

    The most cost effective power gain you will get is from changing the gears in your diffs.

    What engine do you have?
    What gears do you have?
    What size tires are you running?

    chips are "ok" add ons but honestly not worth the money. Do NOT believe hp and tq numbers listed on any website. you might get a couple extra but that'd be best case senario. As for the "electric" supercharger this is honestly one of the most ridiculous things i've ever seen. Please please please don't waste your time or money on this, simply retarded. As asked in the last, what engine is in your unlimited? if it's a 4.0L i've heard good things about the "Edge tail jammer kit" If it's a 4 cyl a decent cheap upgrade is sticking a throttle body for a 4.0L on it.

    When it comes to the engine get quality parts!!!

    That supercharger is basically a scam! An electric fan come on now. You are going to have (maybe) a little improvement at idle. Once you accelerate your engine will pull more than the fan can blow. These type of components need to increase RPM along with the engine. I'm not going to get into the blow by. Please, please, please use your money wisely!!!

    The cost of the parts you've got listed are pretty close to what it would cost to regear one axle. Save up and get both done.

    You get what you pay for. Quality engine upgrades are expensive.

    There is your main problem......33's and stock gearing, save up your money and step up to some 4.56s will solve all your problems. If power was cheap and easy like this it would be stock on cars by now.
