Suck in hot air is all
Stock box with paper filter does way better than any K&N dirt sucker

This is the first ive heard of K&N Filters being "dirt suckers" as you put it. Wont increasing the surface area for air to travel to the engine increase power and open up the engine as well as altering the sound the engine makes. When i put a k&N filter on a wj it changed dramatically

What if you took the stock air box and fit a k&n in it?

All you have to do is type in K&N Filter testing and hundreds of reviews come up.
Basically if you are looking at WOT, then yes you get in more air with a K&N. BUT if you are looking at keeping the dust and dirt out K&N is one if not the worst . Thats what you need on a street and trail vehicle , something that keeps the dirt out , not something that lets more in.
here is just one of the many that are online

How well do K&N air filters work?

The question posed in the title of this post is one that I've seen debated on the 'net since discovering car-related email lists. Fortunately, a Duramax owner tired of the lack of scientific evidence pursued a path of testing that eventually ended with a lab performing the ISO 5011 procedure on a number of replacement air filters. The result was one that many might have concluded on their own - for a given size, a filter's ability to trap dust is inversely proportional to its flow rate. If keeping dust from your engine is the goal, a paper filter such as an AC Delco will provide far superior filtering performance, but you'll pay a price in airflow. If WOT performance is most important, the K&N filter used in this test provided about 50% less restriction to airflow, with the 1.6" of H20 difference in air pressure drop at 350 CFM making for a minimal difference (~0.5%) in power at this flow rate. The K&N and UNI filters were far less efficient at trapping dust, and note that they lose their flow advantage after filtering about 180 grams of dust.

Careful with blue lights, especially on the exterior. It's illegal in most states. It'll get you stopped quicker than speeding does down here where I live. Here you can catch charges and jail time for it not just a ticket.

That's cause the cops use blue down there right?

"down there"? I thought cops everywhere (USA) use blue lights. NC has the no exterior blue light law too.

Most up north use red and white. Many are starting to integrate a blue light into the pattern because studies have shown that it triggers something in drunks brains and helps prevent them from slamming into a police car during traffic stops. However traditionally blue does not represent a police vehicle.

Up here a blue light is signature for a volunteer fireman. Not police vehicle. Like you explained. Several states (mostly down south) have a no exterior blue light law because their police use predominantly blue lights. So volunteer fireman from the north who have fixed blue lenses must cover them if traveling through these states.

Most state laws will specify that rear of vehicle should display red/amber lights. Front should have clear/amber lights. Any variation from that will get ya a ticket in most places.
