Air Intake Question
 
Hey, I'm new to posting here, been a member for a little while. Had my Kk since Feb. '12, right before I joined the USAF. Looking into a new air intake for it, along with some other upgrades. I was just curious, I found this neat intake, but its listed for only 04-07, but it looks like it might fit, just wondering if anyone could tell my why it might not.

Here's the link:

I don't have a huge budget for upgrades, but want to do some stuff to it. Stock tires are getting low on tread, was thinking about getting some Treadwright. What's the easiest way to lift this bad boy?

Thanks in advance!

Skip any intake,the one already installed from the factory is a true CAI and flows more air then the 3.7 can handle.

Thanks.

Yes those do nothing but suck in hot air which you don't want
Lift wise look to jeepinbyal
lifts from 775 on up depending on what you want
full spring is the best way to go for ride, handling, lift etc :thumbsup:

As far as roof racks go where can I get a decent one. Mine are the plastic junk that you can't attach anything to. I need something affordable.

I just installed a K&N CAI on my '13 JKU Sahara. I have to say it's been difficult to not to rev at higher rpm's! I do have to say the true test was towing a boat(1400lbs). I have the 6-speed manual, so the first thing I noticed was there was far less down-shifting. The second was that I had improved fuel economy. In the 650km round-trip, I saved almost enough fuel to pay for the cost of the CAI. With out the CAI, I was @ 15.8km/100km (avg speed was 105-110km/hr and with the CAI was 15.0/100km. It might have been better had I not been in a rush to get home(avg speed 115-120km/hr). I could not be happier. K&N guarantees better performance, you can't go wrong either way.

Great it works for you now, wait a while.
I wouldn't even have a K&N on my Ex Father In Laws truck
way better filters out there
The NAPA Gold line flows more air and also keeps more dirt out than 98% of the others

To each their own....I've tested different air filters on the drag strip and I will run a K&N in all my cars

Air filters do not decrease/increase mpg's when clean and new,so why pay $50 for a air filter when the $5 filter works just as good and actually filters the air better?

Dirty air filters,up to 80% clogged,will actually increase mpg's in new engines,reduces power though.

mmmm wide open run for 10-12 seconds OR everyday driving
Lots of difference
I ran K&Ns on my Harleys and also a couple of pickups before I started really checking out flow rates/ degree of filtering etc.
ONLY place I would maybe run a K&N would be on the strip to keep large bugs out
