Good for a roar!
May 10, 2018
Installation was fast, easy, and the kit came very well package with ALL the necessary hardware, and easy to follow directions. Final install is very clean, very sturdy, and looks as if designed for this Jeep (it was). The first time I put my foot into it, I laughed pretty hard because it was so much louder than the stock air intake. It is loud when you get on it, but much better behaved at normal driving throttle positions (sounds like stock). As far as power, maybe in a perfect, ideal world, with a perfect, ideal Jeep, you might gain 25 horsepower; my guess would be 5-10 that you'll ever actually notice (I would say the gain is comparable to the loss you feel when the a/c is on to off). My gas mileage has definitely not improved, but I don't know if this is because I'm on it more, to hear it roar. It also looks nice in the engine bay.
ProsEasy to install; slight power gain; "cool look factor"; makes serpentine belt and oil filter easier to deal with; great sound; high quality parts for complete installation; built for this Jeep
Conscost; unsure fuel consumption
