motor mount lift make air filter rub?

I plan on doing a bl soon and to go with it I want to do a 1" mml, I have noticed that my cold air In take from rugged ridge rubs slightly on the inside of the Hood. With a 1"mml I pretty sure it will prevent my Hood from closing or will rub a lot. What should I do to make this work? Ill get pics of the rubbing I. A little.

I'd do as Harley suggested. Or re-install your stock intake.

Remove the RR CAI & your problem will be solved. It's not really doing anything anyway. My used Rubicon came with a CAI & I replaced it with the OE air intake system within the first month.

I'd check Craigslist, the various Jeep forum For Sale forums, eBay, etc. There should be plenty available from those who replaced them with aftermarket air intakes.

You can eventually do that once you find one, but in the meantime if you do the body lift along with the MML, you should be fine

But is rubbing now so if the motor is raised an inch I don't think the Hood will close.

If you do a body lift, it'll create more room under the hood allowing for you to do the MML

Why do you feel the need to do the 1" MML? Especially with the extra wheelbase your Unlimited has so it doesn't really need as much drivetrain angle correction?

OE air boxes are common on Ebay along with most any other OE part needed to reinstall the original air filtration system

Since I already have a 3 inch suspension and going to 4 I know us border line for the ljs needing a longer drive shaft, also I want to do a tummy tuck so with the trans higher shouldn't the motor need to be in line?
