0-20 oil?

amsoil is great stuff, but if you want to increase longevity you might want to stick with manufacturer spec. 5 20. could void warrenty also when aand if you have to produce receipts. keep in mind i am far from an expert.

If you buy the K&N filters I have some great Swiss Naval Bonds for sale..amazing intrest 120% per quarter.

Almost everyone I know who works on cars, Jeeps and any thing that runs on gasoline tells me the K&N filter DO NOT save gas or improve mileage. As previously noted in this thread; if it did the engineers at Chrylsler would be selling them and all the chips in the catalogs. IMHO

For the record an oil trap air filter (K&N) works very well on dusty roads and trails so long as you stop every 5 miles and clean it.

From personal experience with a dozens different vehicles, 2 and 4 wheel street and off road racing, most have gotten slightly better gas mileage with K&N filters but not all.

And for the record, K&Ns work fine for everyday driving and not bad off road if the conditions are not too dusty, but from someone that has done some serious off roading, both 2 and 4 wheeled, you should be using an oiled foam filter system and in very dusty conditions you should use an oiled pre-filter skin over the oiled foam filter, like the GNCC cross country racers use.

I hear these discussions from serious shooters where every nuance or design element affects the target hit rate, when in reality it is the shooter not the rifle or pistol. Now the the ribbed air hose intake affects the air flow on Jeeps? This is not physics but grasping at unscientific concepts. The air flow is not affected even if the surface was coated with Teflon, air friction only occurs at intake values that exceed anything you could dream of in a Formula 1 car. The real means testing should be based upon the actual engine air intake values, namely Cu.ft per minute and the engine RPM. K & N loves to bring the "smooth" issue to consumers but the facts of same are yet to be explained.

One fact that can be explained is the loss of benefit using a filter that is impregnated with oil on an off-road vehicle with dust, mud and water potentially covering the filter membrane. As always MHO...no offense to YJ-GENRAL.
