The only one I know of is from the user "III2for3III" (I always get his name wrong). Search for Morimoto Mini retrofit or something along that line.

The first thing you have to ask yourself is whether you want just an HID low-beam aka "Single Xenon" or if you want one light that doubles as a low and high beam known as a "Bi-Xenon".

Why is it preferred over any other brands like K&N?

I don't want a closed box like the volant. I've had very bad luck with the closed box.
There is a justification for dumping all this money into a WK with 91k miles. It's because my brother trashed the original motor while I was on deployment 2 years ago by hydro locking it because of its coosed box Now I've got a 2009 spec bumped HEMI that was brand new and has about 20k miles on it. I don't plan on getting rid of it any time soon. Might as well make it nice!

Re: Remmy's Build

Some people like the closed box to prevent hydro blocking

That closed box actually caused hydro locking. A sealed box like that doesn't let water go anywhere else but in the intake. Ask my keep, it knows. Granted an Airaid isn't too much different but it's better.

Re: Remmy's Build

I have the Airaid Jr. Intake. It replaces the Resonator with a Tube and you still retain the stock airfilter box, but it also comes with a K&N panel filter.

I'm pretty set on the Airaid kit with cone filter.


In other news. I just had to overnight 6.1 gaskets and bolts to the East Coast Truck and Auto because Norfolk is the epitome of suck when it comes to Jeep parts. Grrrr! It's annoying because I'm already spending roughly $400 in parts for the headers and about 1k in labor

You'd think with the tens of thousands of sailors (including myself) with so many tricked out rides here and four Chrysler/ Jeep dealerships and only one had ONE 6.1 header gasket in stock. WTF!?!? FAIL!

Do you have a link of how to install srt8 sway bars? To they bolt right on without mods or headache? Doesn't changing out sway bars also require an alignment?
You have it backward; Driilled rotors do not eat pads, slotted rotors do. Headers are a PITA to make, but will make a big difference over the restrictive manifolds, and will also be VERY loud. SRT Sway bars bolt right on and you are not changing anything with wheel alignment, but you will need an alignment when installing Bilsteins. You will need the mounting brackets with the groove in the center along with new bushings for the front bar. Just need new busings for the stock brackets for the rear bar.

That may be but regardless of drilled or slotted rotors don't they both give you less surface area to work with?
