All this is doing is sucking hot air from the engine bay back into the engine (I'm sure some fresh air is moving through the bay, but the majority of it is hot engine bay air). This will kill MPG and "performance", if any. I doubt the butt dyno will tell you if you got any power from this add on. Regardless, this engine came tuned for the stock intake, by putting on another part, it no longer is running at peak performance. A good rule of thumb is that these parts only provide noise, but are unlocked by a tune. Either way, if you appreciate the noise it can be worth it.
All these CAI are the same, as far as what they are meant to do. On sports cars, trucks and suv's. They will not reduce MPG because of the hot air in your theory. Curious as to what makes you believe that. Dynos say otherwise. I've had these cai(other brand names)on my old 5th gen camaro and 3rd gen camaro and dynos and giddy up said otherwise. Its not significant but down the 1/4 mile and 0-60 at WOT...priceless.

Re: K&N CAI installed - love the deep note on throttle

But how well do they work in an everyday usage and not on the race? How will the mileage be affected plus or minus and will it give that extra kick when needed. Is there any maintenance on it that is periodically required?

I would like to know too.

Now that's a good question. Speaking from experiance on my 5th gen camaro SS. That was my DD in stop and go traffic. Around 15-20mph. When the vehicle was stock i was seeing 13mpg city/hwy. At normal speeds on the Hwy i would see around 17/18mpg on an average of 25- 70mph but would soon drop down to 13 in stop and go traffic.

When i put on the CAI(Cold Air Inductions inc.) i noticed an improvement on the dead spot and began noticing a slight increase on the mpg(stop n go) of about 14 maybe 15. This all depends if you gun it all the time or have a heavy foot. I'm speaking for myself and i did drive spiritedly occassionally but not always. This will all depend on your driving style folks. These intakes may offer roughly about 8-10 hp/tq increase. Manufactures may advertise more. I would suggest getting more info from them.

As far as maintenance goes, i've owned K&N and from what i remember i believe the air filter is good for up to 25k before it needs to be cleaned. I personally do not like the cleaning process of oiling the filter and if you accidently over oil it, it can potentionally damage the MAF sensor. (New to Jeep, not sure if these are on these vehicles.) So i would prefer to spend $40 or so on buying just the filter and installing it to the intake.

For me, personally i am considering purchasing one in the near future and can care less what anyone thinks of them, just debating what brand on getting and what is available for the jeep. I've spent countless hours under the hood of my rides and know what i put in them and what they will do after, just my 0.02

Re: K&N CAI installed - love the deep note on throttle

Yep I'm looking into also for my overland. I'm not looking to get an SRT growl out of my exhaust with my V8,just a bump in horses slightly.

I went with the stage 2 from aFe for my overland and the "growl" is awesome. I didn't realize how much of a sound difference it would make.

The growl isn't something I necessarily need or want with the install. I'll defiantly take any benefits that come with it.

Re: K&N CAI installed - love the deep note on throttle

I've already posted this somewhere else around here and not to throw anyone off of their plans, but this says it all for me. They do nothing for you but produce noise and at best, negligible gains, especially the ones for these Jeeps:

I'm sorry. Seems I do that for a lot of people around here, but I'd rather know than not and save $200+.
That's just me though.
