Yes, air down the NT05R. 20-25 psi works well....if you run them too low, you can damage the sidewall. 315/35/20 is the widest that will fit.

Start at 20-25 like said above and keep adding air if it hooks. When it starts to spin, drop a bit of air back out. You will run faster with more air in the tires vs. lower.

Yeah the 315 NT05R needs to at least be on the 10" stock rear wheel.

If you relocate the battery to the rear, NHRA rules says you must have an external shut-off switch in the rear of the vehicle.......which gets tricky with an SUV. I think the battery must also be in a sealed box, vented to the outside.

Master Disconnect Switch: Whenever a battery is relocated to the trunk or vehicle runs 9.99 or quicker or exceeds
135 mph, the vehicle must be equipped with an external master disconnect switch. This switch must be clearly
labeled and immediately disconnect the positive side of the battery. If switch is “push/pull” type” push must be the
action for shutting off the electrical system. To determine if the switch operates properly a tech inspector will turn off
the switch with the engine running. If this action does not immediately shut down the engine then the switch is wired
improperly and the vehicle shall fail the inspection. Drivers should ensure the alternator charge wire is routed to the
battery side of the switch. This isolates the alternator from the rest of the electrical system. Drivers should check with
the switch manufacturer to ensure it is properly installed. Refer to NHRA Rulebook section 8:4 for further clarification.
In all cases the master disconnect switch, including an OEM style ignition switch, must also shut off the electric fuel
pump(s) regardless of battery location.

Joe,
Why would you relocate the battery for a Procharger when the Procharger is now made for the Jeep and doesn't need relocation?

its not like the vortech setup. it has an air to air intercooler so the blower sits on the lewft side where a bwoody would be and i believe the pipe comming up comes up right where the battery is then bends into the TB. i think. if im wrong correct me someone

Joe,
You do not need to relocate one single thing. Consider yourself corrected, buddy! Lol!
