Air Filters

Where can I get a new air filter besides the stealership? I checked walmart and could not find the correct one even the fram air filter's i can't seem to find one that fits. Advance auto seems to only have these more expensive $50 K & N air filters and that's without shipping or tax. That seems a bit high to me. Any one know where to find a decent new air filter?

Thanks

I bought two at the dealer yesterday for $13 each and two oil filters for $5 each.
I don't like the Purolator air filter, btw; I've tried them twice and my fuel economy drops each time.

Again- I still say get the K&N/Mopar filter- ~$40-50, and lifetime lasting. Cleaning kit's about $20. Paid for in about 5 changes of the stock filter, and no additional dirt behind it that I can see after regular trips, and living on a farm (dirt parking lot, dust, etc.)- Mark W.

I would never run a K&N or other gauze type filter in a vehicle offroad unless a pre-filter (snorkel) is also employed.

Test data:
ISO 5011 Duramax Air Filter Test Report
Air Filtration Test

I also have volumes of anecdotal testimony from my customers in the GC/Mass-Spec labs, mostly oil guys.

Use cheap paper filters and replace them as often as you want, now and then, just blow them out backwards, with HP air

Fram is one of the most available and are cheap to replace, thats all I use

I agree with HD, don't spend money on a K $ N filter, especially one with oil application--

Did the K & N thing on my Ford. Hated it. No improvement in milage or performance AND it’s a pain in the butt! Will never do it again.

air filter

I was told by the dealer a oil type filter can cause "sticky" issues with the mass air flow sensor, the oil pulled by causes very small particules to stick on the damper. When you take it in to for warranty work for a air sensor issue, it will not be covered.

Also, keep in mind, putting more air in the front does no good without changing the exhaust flow, it has to have somewhere to go.

Simple solution to a much hyped "costly filters = better performance" buy bridge stock when you pick up the $50.00+ air filters. The plain paper filter, Fram or Puralator are just as good, in fact better than the costly oil "dipped"K&N filters. The very act of impregnating an air filter with oil is counter productive to air flow and the oil can NEVER be removed from the filter thus the entrapped dust & air particulates remain. HEPA filter remove micron size particulates, they are never impregnated with any oil. The cheap air conditioner filters are impregnated with silicone...those are worthless. Perhaps electrostatic paper filters are a better choice; but in a Jeep plain paper is best.Tgates is correct about the dealer not covering a warranted sensors if you stick a K & N filter on your Jeep.

I haven't used or tested one.
They can't be worse than the Purolator...
