Yea your right Im sure. And yes, very off road. It just depends I guess. Its a daily driver 30 min each way. So I just blow it off with air each oil change. And new one at about 25k . this summer we went to Turkey bay off road park. I changed it when we got back.

What do you think of changing to the metal K&N cleanable filter? I hit water mudd holes pretty hard so I'm thinking it would be more likley to suck water in. agree?

Ive had that problem too... I just push it into first harder lol

Oil based air filters are not really recommended for offroad based vehicles, in a tuner or street truck they are great, but those paper filters are doing their job, stopping all that debris from getting in your engine.

some people come across as a hate monger towards the JK, everyone knows he hates it and finds any reason to let everyone know he hates it. i mean its not like it's a 4 cylinder ffs! to say something once is fine but to continue to say the same thing over and over is................well stupid. sorry but its true

Exactly right. Stay with the paper element. It's way more efficient at filtering out the crud.

Personally I think oil based air filters are more hype than help power wise. I have had them on two previous (non offroad) vehicles and couldn't tell any difference in performance or mileage.

Corvette owners I know of have had issues with oil from the filter surface messing up the mass airflow sensor. That's an expensive PITA and JKs have them just as Corvettes do.

Well we had a nice wind/rain storm last night and found out my '10's roof is leaking. It leaks pretty good too. I will prolly have the dealer look at it when I take it in for it popping out of first! Oh and the rising rpm issue while pressing the clutch. I only have 1k on it and am nervous of my purchase. This is the first brand new vehicle I have ever bought, and I think I have had more things wrong with it than any used car/truck I had ever bought before.

Despite all of the problems it is comfy. It rides nice when I am not shifting.

Since I have owned a YJ, TJ, and two JK's, I can honestly say the JK is far superior to the earlier models. I would not even think about going back to an earlier platform!
