Have you checked the manufacturer's website for installation instructions?

It came with instructions and they seem straight forward. I am asking for tried and true advice that manufacturers do not include in instructions.

I agree with the "lights" suggestion but if you must install them check the Project JK write-ups section.

Yes. Read the thread below and get your money back on the CAI.

I also read that jeeps oem intake is already minimally restricted and the cold air does little to nothing. There's a website that did actual tests and the gain was 1-2 hp which is barely measurable.

Return it and buy something else shiny.

Different induction system, is just a big waste of money, because it will do nothing for you, and may not even filter the micron particles is well...........

You will gain next to nothing other than noise from a "cold air intake". If anything you will probably get worse performance and fuel economy. The engine was designed and tuned for the components that are on it. You can get yourself a tuner and get much better results. But even at that the tuning isn't bad from the factory.

I had a Mopar cold air intake on my 13 Sahara. It definitely woke the midrange up in my motor. Was it a racecar? No, did it sound cool? Yes, did it give me better mpg? A bit, not anything crazy but I was happy with it. It's your jeep, do what you want with it!

Chrysler voided a guys powertrain warranty that had a mopar intake when it allowed excessive dirt into the engine causing severe cylinder wear resulting in heavy oil consumption and loss of compassion. Engine needed to be replaced and Chrysler wouldn't cover it because it had the Mopar intake on it.
Beware "performance" Intakes and air filters. They flow more cfm but that's because they have less filtration. Letting in more air but also more dirt. If you have a race car and are trying to squeeze every last ounce of power. Your not so worried about filtration quality. You just want more air. This should never be the case on an offroad vehicle, let alone a daily driver.

You will need a box cutter or a small pocket knife. Open the box and remove all the parts. The instruction manual should be included. Take that out and review the list parts and confirm against what you have. Review the installation instructions. Grab all the parts that you have just laid out and toss them in the trash. Place the box in your recycling container.

Your Jeep will now run optimally.

Definitely add a snorkel if you're to dump colder air into the cylinders. Plus, that first creek or stream you come across, you'll have a little more peace of mind.

Thank you so much! This is the type of input I look forward to on this forum. Not those horse sayers that always like Nay, Nay, Nay no matter what I ask about.

I took it back to Jeep in the box and was like take it back. They assured me it is covered under warranty bc they included it in the purchase of the new jeep and it's OEM.

It is installed. Now I get to go try it out.

Looks good 1Topp! I got out of my driveway and stepped on the gas and was impressed. It jumped a half gallon per mile in just a mile, and now after a few miles it's up almost two gallons per mile. It sounds like a beast, and is so much more responsive.

I am looking into exhaust work. I don't know if I want an axel back or a cat back. I need to research that move.

Well, that is one of the reasons I removed my CAI from my 2014 Rubicon. The other was the loss in MPG. My 2010 loved it, my 2014 did not.

You looked for the input that agreed with your hopes so therefore it was the only accurate one in this thread.

If such a simple thing could really increase MPG, I wonder why the manufacturers aren't smart enough to use these to meet the strict government requirements. Think about that.

Yeah, the dude simply ignored all post except the one giving him information he wanted to read.
Let's see what he's posting 20k later when the filter has let enough dirt through to replant my lemon tree.
