What are these things?

While engaging in my oil fiasco, I notices these two things: one covered by what looks like painted tape, and one open.

Passenger side with painted tape:

Driver's side, no tape:

Mine's a 2011.

air intake for your heat/AC system. separated by a gasket from the engine, off center from the hood vents and slightly raised like that to keep water and leaves and stuff out of the system. there is one on each side with one taped off because JK's come in both Right and Left handed varieties....

My drivers side is also untaped, but it's the opposite, because my JK is right handed

'71 DJ-5 (that isn't a typo)
'10 JKU Sport RHD

RHD... it's a jeep thing

Good looking out! I wondered why one was taped... I thought some klaun forgot to untape something... or retape something... in the paintbooth.
