2.Volant 341.99


3. K&N 268.99


4. Stay Stock

All they do is make the Jeep louder and let in more contaminants.
A snorkel is a mod that will benefit you.

Keep the intake stock. Wheel it for a while and start to mod the things that make it work better for how you use it.
An air intake on a JK is like putting baseball cards in your bicycle spokes; it didn't make your bicycle into a motorcycle and it won't make your JK better...

You sir are a liar! My bicycle did in fact become a motorcycle with the addition of baseball cards, and I recomend putting them in the wheels of your JK as well. I'd skip the CAI though.

Just swap in a K & N into your factory airbox, performs better and will save you money in the long run.

You say you have a pure jeep one does that mean you went back to stock? if so why

Hold a K&N (or other oiled gauze element) up to the light and look through it. See those pin-holes? They're letting dust through.
I challenge any K&N user to send their used oil in for mass-spec analysis; if you wheel in any sort of dusty conditions, you'll see dangerous levels of silicates in your oil.
Try it. Really. It's worth the $$. Blackstone labs or other similar one.

Or just call Blackstone and ask them what type of air filter is being used in most of the vehicles that show high silicate contamination of their oil.

Don't get me wrong, I have a DDM CAI w/K&N element on my MINI. But I don't run my MINI on dusty gravel roads... ...and it still shows increased silicate contamination... ...but not enough to bother me...

I installed the Airaid after a few months of ownership. I noticed a difference in pick up right away. As for sound, it seems a bit throaty-er, but not a real big difference. I use my Jeep to drive back and forth to work and go off road on some weekends and haven't really looked into alternate filters mentioned by Hilldweller, but I will. Regardless, I'm pleased with my $225 cold air intake and feel that it's made a difference.

i totally agree with this it makes sence these types of intakes where designed for racing applications were the engine is going to be broken down every few races and cleand and put back together so the engine builders werent really worried about how clean the engine was going to be and how long it would last just that it made the most power so my question is what kind of intake do you have on your jeep stock any air filter change or something weird we have never seen before (what im really hoping for)
