also, what about a cone or cylinder filter? that would eliminate the whole concept of an airbox and mounting. i was thinking a similar setup to kiddo's first pic in this thread, just in the cowl.
Feeding the the intake into the cowl and then attaching to the connecting tube to the throttle body makes the box pretty snug. There's also not a lot of room under there for it to move generally I did put one (or two) zip ties on it, but its not going anywhere.

i meant if the airbox was relocated underneath the cowl, which is what a couple people have done if i understand correctly.

Its pretty snug in the cowl, I would imagine by the time you get your filter and any connecting tubing in there and tighten the cowl cover down that nothing will be moving.

I don't have personal experience with those so not my place to just repeat what I have read. Do a search for any of the brand names of popular under hood after market filters and you will find plenty of opinions . . . . most of them negative.

well im thinking a cylinder or cone filter would be much simpler, and just provide cover from rain and mud with a scoop and some screen/prefilter on the cowl vent.

and the bad opinions about after market air filters are either lack in performance increase or lack in filtration, im just talking about the idea and concept of a simpler filter that does NOT require an airbox.

Wow! This post has given me SOOOOO many great cold air MOD Ideas! WELL DONE! I even have a Ford F-150 filter assy off my old 97 F150 that I can use!

I also like the Idea of moving the IAT sensor. I plan on making a MAP sensor scaler and using my wide band O2 sensor to adjust my Air Fuel Ratio. Cant wait to see the results. You can BET that there will be picture attached!!!

No more sucking in hot air and that gap on jeeps is so wide it sucks or rams in plenty of cool outside air. Then i kept the stock air box but put in a drop in K&N filter. Next i replaced that cheesy stock intake tube with all the extra bends , that accordion section and the small diameter of 2 inches with ABS tubing,connectors from Home Depot, gained an extra inch in diameter and more direct to throttle body design. oh plus i put in a push in breather filter on top of valve cover. Wow, what a difference it made in performance plus it looks good . Im telling u, i used to fall back going up hills , now it pulls away. i can send pics , email if anyone interested.
You're PM box is full Robz. Can you PM me:
build up w/ parts, tools, and some pics?
