Good luck getting an air filter under your hood with that intake. Sounds like a fun set up but probably overkill for a jeep. The 5.2 is already fast in one.
By my highly edumacated measurements and wild *** guessing, things should fit just fine. It's not a carb, there's an intake tube that lays pretty flat on the GC


All about that unibody life.

I had maybe two inches between hood and intake.

2 inches? That's like a redneck foot!

I think the stock intake and the hughes are the same heightish. Even if they don't fit, I'll make it fit...
