Cold Air intake help

HI I just bought a jeep and my air filter is pretty much done. Its an aftermarket cold air intake system but I have no idea what brand or anything. Ive looked all over the thing and theres no logo or brandname. I think the previous owner just threw some generic deal in there.
If i want to replace the filter how do i go about this without knowing what kind it is? can i just put any filter on it?

I don't see why you can't. Just make sure the CAI will fit the existing intake tube.

Take the filter to your auto parts store and make them find it. But if I were you Id get a factory set up. Much better for your engine. Theres countless threads on this, try a search.

I don't get what you mean by this.

aftermarket intakes add no power, and replace a proper filter with an inferior "filter".

they are a lose lose, unless you are one who went to tube fenders and can't keep the OEM setup

Is the whole CAI bad or just the filter? Just get a new filter the rest is just pipe. I disagree on the "no power added" thing. I built mine from scratch and noticed a diff at 2-3rpm. Doesn't down shift while passing any more. On the flip side they do get dirty faster and driving through a deep puddle becomes a no no. I kept my oem setup for heavy off roading
