You can't call someone an idiot for hydroing a jeep on the trail, you can however call them an idiot if they use their jeep on the trail with the factory water funnel still in place

No opinion on the submarineability of either setup, but I took a k&n fipk off of my ford truck, an application where it actually helps power, because the sound level was obnoxious. Anything above 1/4 throttle and it drones so bad we had to yell in the cab. No more thought goes into those things than the homemade setups that a lot of guys do, but they cost a lot more. Junk, imo.
Some sort of cowl induction is the right answer. Cool air, from a higher point that's visible to the driver.

If you want to test if your factory box is restrictive, unbolt the box from the inner fender and reassemble the box, then rev it and watch the flex pipe collapse and expand with every rev no matter if it's 2000 rpm or 5000.

Indeed the noise is very intrusive, cool when you're messing around on your own but can be a little embarrassing when you give it some throttle carrying the inlaws around.
