Cold Air Intake On 1992 Laredo

After doing some research I can't find any cold air intake systems that fit on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4.0L. Does anybody know where to find one or if I can put one that fits another jeep into it? All suggestions welcome.

I was looking through those who have created there own and some mentioned some stuff about snow. I drive mine up to the mountain a lot in the winter, what effect does snow have on CAI's?

plumb your vents to the airbox, when you want more power just blast the a/c

97 xj
44 front, detroit, alloyed
60 rear, detroit, 35 spline alloyed
35" beadlocked km2's
3" midarmed
more bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at

Haha...besides the obvious. Will colder whether make it any more/less efficient?

I'm a young guy and still learning the ins and outs of my jeeps so sorry if this seems real basic. I just really want to learn to make my jeep the best it can be.

cold air=more dense air=more oxygen molecules per square inch=more air in the cylinders=better burn

typical setup remove the airbox in its place either use pvc or exhaust pipe and put a cone filter at the end you can route it however you want should cost you about 30bucks at the most

From what I have read and the suggestions here, custom is the way to go. Can anybody give me some instruction on what I need and the best way to go about it?

Also, what should I do with the PCV because that goes into my air intake box right now, but going custom would remove that...
