Okay, the tube which the filter attached to is a carbonio. Sorry I bought my jeep with this already installed haha but Thankyou. Should I buy another better filter?

I'd run anything BUT a K&N air filter. Go back to the OE paper element air filter, it is superior to the other filters mentioned here especially the K&N which is well known to be one of the worst at actually filtering dirt out of the air.

Okay well in that case, no K&N it is. I'll look into the OE

At O'Reilly's they have a little test station set up so you can see the difference between a K&N air filter and some other brand air filter. It is supposed to show how a K&N filter allows superior air flow..but hold each filter up to the light and see how much more light you can see through the K&N filter. Then think about all the microscopic dirt and dust particles and then shudder and never buy a K&N. (K&N does allow superior air flow, but unless your vehicle is operating where there is NO dirt or dust, I would not buy one)

The thing about the K&N's claim-to-fame which is better air flow, that doesn't really matter unless the air filter it is replacing is restricing air flow. In the TJ's case, the OE air filter system together with its paper element air filter doesn't restrict the air flow like many other air intake systems do. Some air intake systems are purposely engineered to be restrictive. In the TJ's case, it was specifically engineered to be non-restrictive.

I agree with you on that unless necessary Id stick with OEM filters.
on my motorcycle I like the little nut they put at the end on their oil filters cuz I could use my wrench to put it on and take it off easily.

I truly believe that my 2500 HD Chevy Silverado 8.1L's premature engine failure was due to the K&N air intake I had on it.

Dead at 120,00 miles. :banghead:

But then I bought the Jeep. :D
