From my experience, adding HP / Torque via turbo or supercharger require both cooling and exhaust upgrades too.
I added a Kenne Bell supercharger to our 2003 Rubicon 12 years / 12,000 miles ago and its worked great... probably because I also upgraded the cooling system:
•*AEV Heat Reduction Hood
•*Mopar 7 blade fan
•*Flow Kooler high flow water pump
•*Turbo City high flow thermostat housing
... and the exhaust:
•*Banks TorqueTube exhaust header
•*Borla catback exhaust & muffler (Banks Monster Exhaust preferable now)
This works rock crawling AND on the highway. Others who've installed turbos or superchargers haven't been so fortunate...

Welcome! ^^ What Don said ^^
My engine is boosted (supercharger) - doubled the rear wheel HP and the 42RLE auto tranny is just fine. I would change the transmission filter and fluid of course, you have to drop the pan but it's not that much work (unless you are laying on your back.)

|Tonopah||I have an '05 LJ auto. Any need to rebuild the transmission before installing the Banks kit? My transmission currently works fine but I am thinking a rebuild might be wise before I rely on it to handle the increased hp and torque.|

I’m also a yes to the Banks Turbo.
I’ve had virtually no issues with mine and for sure would recommend one.
I understood that they had some “teething” issues with the first release on the 03/04 models but those had been resolved.
Mines an 06 and I bought direct from Banks when they had one of their 20% off specials.
