I would try to find some way around using the dryer hose stuff. See if you can replace that section at the throttle body with a solid 90* bend of PVC or even rubber. Also your tube is going to get as hot as everything else in the engine compartment and subsequently increase the temp of the air going into the engine. I actually have a cheap ebay intake that had the same problem, so I wrapped it in three layers of AC duct insulation and wrapped that in aluminum tape to keep it secured. Works very well. Look at my build thread for pictures of it.
2003 WJ in Jeep Green Metallic, 4.0/242/4.10's. 4" Teraflex springs w/ RE monotube shocks and IRO short arms, cheap intake w/ amsoil filter, 2.5" hi flow cat and back exhaust, lots of lights and other misc crap.
