Yea the cold air intake is a complete waste of money! Put that money towards something else. If you want some to do with air intake, get a snorkel. Looks awesome and functions better than a CAI.

yea save your money on the cold air intake. They might sound like they are making power but there have been many dyno tests to show they really don't.

Out of curiosity why do you want a cold air intake?

Are you going to be doing any wheeling with the Jeep? If so maybe a small leveling kit and some 33" tires. It'll give you some better offroad performance as well as a more aggressive styling.

We have a ton of options for both tires and lift kits. If you have any questions about brands of kits or tires, let me know!

Nnedia I would say change out the headlights, doens't have to be LED or HID -- can just do a simple IPF or Delta swap and do some insulation since summer is pretty much here. check out - Home

honestly, the headlights are pretty bad if there are no street lights and the sun will bake your noggin'.

DaCajun86 I don't know if this would be a first upgrade but I usually put a k&n jeep air intake and then a flow master muffler.. Love the sound it makes. Plus I actually got better gas mileage with the upgrades.
