New Jeep and questions for mods

Just bought a 4 door 2010 Rubicon. I am looking at adding some accessories and was wondering if anyone has gone with some of the mopar performance modifications? I was looking at the CAI and lift.

IMHO, CAIs aren't a smart mod unless they incorporate a snorkel of some sort. Most are open in design with gauze filter media; they invite water and dust intrusion in the offroad environment in accelerated levels.
If you add a snorkel with a prefilter (such as the AEV "fishbowl"), you'll mitigate these downsides.

The MOPAR lift is a fairly costly one but might be worth the money if it were to save you warranty hassles.

x2 on the CAI, the stock intake is subject to getting water sucked in, the CAI is 10x's worse.
