Air filters.

Curious what filters you are running in the stock air box? OEM style? Dry reuseable?

Im running a Baldwin air filter from Car Quest, not getting fleeced by the dealer when the quality is no better.

OEM style. For better performance, a snorkel with it and aftermarket exhaust is a nice upgrade.

OEM or Wix.

The key is to change it often. I change the air filters on all my vehicles every year or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.

More often on the Jeep if I suspect it got dirty off road.

One vote against Wix. Dust got past mine the last time I checked it. I blow it out after each trip out to the desert. Only 6,000 miles on the filter and it was separating at the seams. Also the rubber isn't thick enough to seal and not let air bypass the filter from the sides. I went with an AC Delco and the rubber was thicker for a better seal.

I used to think Wix was fine but a few years ago I bought one and just like was stated above the rubber seal was made of a thin plastic material instead of thick rubber. I like Mopar OEM they are made in the USA by Denso.

That is the first thing I looked at when I opened the Baldwin up - thick rubber seal.

Don't be so sure. Even Denso branded filters can be made in a number of different countries. USA, China, Thailand etc. Mopar branded filters are the same. They come from at least 6 different countries nowadays. Mopar filters have been manufactured by Wix, Puroator and others over the years. Personally I will use either Mopar or Wix but I inspect them quite well no matter which I get. Wix offers at least 3 different grades of filter at present and I'm yet to see a faulty Gold Series or above. As a matter of fact I would challenge anyone to tell the difference between the oem that came in my 14 from the Wix replacements I've installed. I still have them all. Even the manufacturing marks are identical.

AEM Dry Reusable, started using them years ago on my Subaru and love them. Every oil change I wash, shake dry and put it back in.

Better air flow, and better dirt flow

Stick with paper or a quality reusable dry filter for this application.

Use Wix, they're the best filters out there (air/oil/etc) and CarQuest USED to be Wix until they started using Tommy Boys factory (Baldwin) which I would NEVER use personally. K&N's are great to but remember you have to clean & re-oil them which takes time to do properly!

I've had the same K&N air filter in my 2004 Wrangler for the past 10 years. Wash and re-oil a couple times a year and it's holding up perfectly.

Interesting air filter video using a dyno to compare filters, clean, dirty and road test.
