Couple questions regarding maintenance

1. Is it really worth to put in K & N Air Filter? (WIX is $16 and K&N is $50)
2. Do I need to replace the PCV Valve Elbow and Grommet even if it looks clean? (my wrangler has 56800 miles on it right now)

Thank You.

1. Most would say no to the K&N. Since mine is a mall crawler atm, mine has a K&N.

2. If the elbow and grommet look to be in good shape, there's no need to replace them.

No need for the K&N...I don't know the WIX TJ filter but the OEM air filters are very effective. With only 56K miles, if the elbow and grommet look good...let 'em be. Good luck

K&N filters are unnecessary
