Price: $190.00
Pros: Easy to assemble. Looks much better than the K&N kit. Easy to clean filter.
Cons: Poor fitment on Non-HO 4.7L motors. Poor fitment on 4.7Ls with EVAP under the hood.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: IF YOU HAVE A NON-HO 4.7L BEWARE!!! This kit is designed for 4.7L HO motors.
I had to buy an extended breather hose because the HO motor has a slightly different setup.
Also the coupler from the throttle body to intake tube is too large on the throttle body side. Doesn't make me feel comfortable about it and will be buying a coupler that is the right size.
They designed the intake shield for a WJ with the Evap stuff in the rear of the vehicle. I think they relocated that to the rear in '02. Since mine has the Evap under the hood, I had to cut part of the shield away so it would fit over the hoses and wiring. I also had to cut the shield to fit around the inner fender, not sure if that is because my vehicle has been slightly wrecked or because the fitment was so specific to the vehicle they designed it on.

Overall I like it. If you have an HO motor, and EVAP in the rear of the vehicle, this is perfect. If you don't have an HO motor or EVAP in the rear, be ready to cut the shield and buy extra hose.

Price: $259.00
Pros: Easy to install, definite "seat of the pant" performance improvement, dry filter doesn't require oil, excellent fit and finish.
Cons: You will lose your stock jack location. Makes working on the distributor / coil area difficult (but easily removed and swung out of the way).
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The installation of this intake was pretty easy. Since my rig has air conditioning, there is a dessicant bottle (dryer) that I had to relocate by drilling through the fender well to get the filter housing in place. Other than that, no trouble. I could feel a definite performance improvement, but I also installed a full Borla SS exhaust and upgraded my injectors (only 1 lb./hr.) at the same time. I figured if you are going to increase air flow there's no gain unless you increase exhaust flow at the same time. I did a little research prior to buying this mod and it seemed like it was the best gain at the best price. Overall I am very pleased with this product.

Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Performance gain is not clear
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Trying (like everyone else) to get whatever extra HP I can squeeze out of the underpowered 3.8L V6. Do i feel a power difference? yes, maybe, but it is very subjective to every driver. Do I get better MPG? hard to tell. But I am always a believer in permanent type dry-air filters on all my vehicles, so I would say it was a good purchase.

Comments: There is no real reason to buy one of these things, they do not, in my experience, help at all. Save your money for other things.

Price: $150.00
Pros: Great construction, decent performance boost, maybe an MPG better on gass.
Cons: Installation instructions were crap and left out a few details that I feel are very important. I've installed several intakes, this was by far the hardest to install, only because of the mounting of the box to the old OEM box mounting holes. MIght have mentioned I may need a long socket extension and Threadlock to get those nuts secured properly.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I covered most of the review already in the Pro's and Con's. We all know what air intakes are about. aFe could have put more detail into a step or two. Like, if you're using a throttle body spacer also, then plan on shaving part of the plastic throttle body casing down, due to the location of the cooling line where it enters the engine. Have that Dremel tool handy! Second, the heat shield/air box of the aFe Brute Force mounts to the same holes as the old air box, and the nuts are underneath the bracket that's attached to the frame. Getting the factory nuts off was challenging but not bad. The challenge is getting them retightened. I didn't have any sockets that would slip underneath, and pliers didn't work. You do have a clear shot at them from underneath, but from the ground it's like 4 feet up!! Hence my comment about a long socket extension. But I'd suggest Threadlok as well, due to engine vibration. Just my opinion here, but I was not a happy camper at the mod and pain in my azz of installing it. I put on on a Liberty....took 15 minutes!! Go figure...

Pros: Easy Install
Cons: No significant power improvement
Recommended? No

Comments: I kick myself for spending the money on this upgrade. As expected, it gave me no noticeable improvement in power or fuel economy. I should have gone with my gut instead of listening to all the BS about what great improvement CAI's give. There's nothing specifically wrong with the brand, it's just that CAI's seem to make no real improvements to the JK's engine.

Pros: Huge pipe, airbox seals really well.
Cons: The top lip of the airbox needs trimmed a little bit to fit right, and it's not an aem filter....oil and gauze, not fun for maf
Recommended? Yes

Comments: still a good intake for the price you can't beat it, by it throw away the filter and get an aem one. there's a reasons we turned away from oil based filters in the 80s...and it wasn't so they could come back in the lates 00's

Price: $225.00
Pros: Easy to install, well made, solid, great sound at higher rpm's, a little more hp.
Cons: Black plastic air tube gets hot. Might want to wrap with heat tape.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: For almost $100 cheaper than the K&N kit, this kit is fantastic. Really wakes up my 4.7L, especially at higher rpm's. Sounds great too. Easy to install and very well made. The only thing I'd recommend is wrapping the black plastic air tube with some type of heat tape, as the black plastic is thick, but gets hot and must warm the air up as it goes into the throttle body.

Price: $305.00
Pros: Smooth flow into the throttle body. Nice WOT sound.
Cons: High cost for an incomplete setup.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Price is high due to the fact you need a snorkel or ram air to get the full benefit. It decreases performance without one of those additional modifications. The engine bay gets damn hot and you will only be sucking in hot air leading to less power from running lean.


Witty Title Here
