Review & Install Video

Boost Performance. Rugged Ridge makes this Throttle Body Spacer for the latest and greatest Wrangler JK models to help you boost your engine's performance, torque, and horsepower. The large bore spacer raises the throttle body 1 inch above the intake manifold, thus letting your Jeep's engine suck in plenty of cold, dense, power-boosting air. You can install this high quality aluminum spacer in an hour or two using simple hand tools, with no need to drill new holes.

Durable Construction. With a gasket and all hardware included, the Throttle Body Spacer by Rugged Ridge comes ready to install. Measuring 1 inch in thickness to give a similar lift to the throttle body above the engine manifold, this spacer features a large, smooth bore for pulling in plenty of air. Construction is solid aluminum for toughness and corrosion resistance, further enhanced by a black anodized coating. Rugged Ridge covers this part with a 5 year limited warranty against manufacturing defects.

Application. This Rugged Ridge Throttle Body Spacer is specifically designed to be used on the 2012-2017 Wrangler JK models equipped with the 3.6L V6 engine.

Technical Note. This Rugged Ridge Throttle Body Spacer is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards.

Better MPG, save money!

Definitely worth the money, seeing as it pays itself off with better MPG. And being as it's so cheap, it's definitely a must buy. Also fits with after market air intakes so thats always a plus.

    Does absolutely nothing.

    Well not completely true, it seems to have made the increase in MPG that I got with my CAI was completely lost and it seemed like it made me lose power not gain it. Do not waste your money.

    Great price

    Read all the forum posts you want about how T.B.S.'s are a waste of money, all I know is from personal experience, after installing this (which is super simple) my gas mileage has increased .4 miles per gallon and can feel much better throttle response from the gas pedal. At this low price the added gas mileage will pay for the product.

    Fast and Easy

    It took all of five minutes to install by myself. I suppose it helped a great deal that I was installing a cold air intake at the same time and already had the oem air filter off. However, it fit great but it is hard to rate the performance gain because it wasn't the only thing I did at the time. Would recommend.

    Product has good results

    Installed this on my 2012 jk in less then 30 minutes. My gas mpg went from 17.1 to 17.8 and throttle response is slightly better. The spacer looks great and I have no regrets. I've had this on for a week and no problems or annoying whistling sound. I do recommend this product regardless of what the jeep forums say.

    Rugged Ridge Throttle Body Spacer 2012 JKU

    Fit and finish were what you should expect, both great. The install is quick and straight forward. As far as performance gains, not sure honestly. It is a jeep not a sports car so I did not expect much, but did I think I felt a little bump from it, sure. You get that sucking sound a bit which has the cool factor. Worth the money, yep cause it does not cost much at all.

    Dead Spot Gone After Going to 35” tires

    After going to 35” tires on my 2013 JKU Rubicon, with 3.73 ratio, I had a definite lag in throttle response, and what felt like a dead spot in torque when accelerating. Adding the Spacer improved throttle response, to immediate, with no dead spot at all. I was impressed that I got the same stock snap I had with stock rubber.

    nice and easy

    bought this with new cold air intake, not sure witch is giving better gas miles but went from 16.4 to about 17.8 and a little better depending on how heavy foot is, and throttle response is also better definitely can feel difference, again not sure witch spacer or air intake

    Excellent product!

    I was skeptical at first, after I installed it I went for a drive and I could definitely feel a difference in throttle response from a stop, throttle up hill and when passing. There is an increase in fuel mileage as well.

    Worth it

    It's still debated weather CIA/TBS make a difference with the 3.6's in JK's since they're optimized so well from the factory but the combination of this and a cold air intake gave me a nice throaty sound when accelerating and made my gas pedal a bit more snappy.

    Marginal if any gain

    Simple enough install and i was already in there working on an intake install. At most it seems that it's a little easier to get first great going from a stop.

    Incorrect details

    The description states this spacer is 1 inch thick. Be advised , what you will receive is but 1/2 inch thick. If you're OK with the false description and expect to receive less than what you paid for , you should have no issue.

    Jeep sounds mean now

    Simple to install, also works and sounds great with the red rock cold air intake that I put on at the same time. Jeep definitely gained some horse power and better throttle response. Plus it sounds awesome.

    It Almost Installs Itself

    I installed the throttle body spacer at the same time as the cold air intake. It was the easiest performance upgrade I've ever installed.
