They are being smart because newbies are supposed to read the FAQs and search as most likely the questions newbies have were asked 30000000000000000 times over the years. Even a newbie newer than you knew the answer to your question....

Now, where are all the other newbies that will come to your rescue to tell us all how we're being too hard on you?

Welcome!
I agree that your best option is the stock system. I bought my Jeep with a K & N and have since replaced it with a stock intake.

Neither!! Save your money and buy a locker or a winch instead.

Read all the stickies and FAQ threads.

Yeaman - the consensus is that bolt on CAIs don't do anything to the 4.0 that would come close to justifying the cost. There is one system that comes with a bigger throttle body and new computer that I hear does add something, but its very expensive. Remember you're driving a 2.5 ton brick, it wasn't made to go fast.

sometimes its best to just take the critism and walk away.
if your mind is set on one of these intakes i say go for it, then in a couple of months give us your update and let us know if it helped your MPG or HP. the general concensus is these are a a waste and our hard earned money is best spent elsewhere.

also by looking at your profile i noticed your pic of your rig in the mud, CAI's and mud do not mix at all, maybe you should lean towards a snorkel.

I have the K&N.... It is collecting dust in the garage... If you want it I sell it to you cheap... It actually hurt my gass mileage on my 2.5. Just my Cents.

Only real reason to mod the stock airbox on a TJ is to either add a snorkel or make room under the hood for other stuff.

I moved my intake to clear space for a toolbox and never got around to mounting the toolbox.
