Looking for info

What cold air box system do you recommend to replace the stock one?
Just installed a 2" lift and want to put the biggest tire without rubbing. I know others have done this so chime in. My rig is an 01 Limited with a 4.7 eng.

Re: Looking for info

for the WJ 4.7 most people get the K&N with a plastic tube and is your bets bet. at new can be a max of $300 to the lowest of $150 if you shop around and find a deal.

with the 2" lift can run 265/70/16 with a bit of trimming or 245/75/16 with no trimming

Re: Looking for info

It depends if you want dress-up, or more functional. The non-conductive plastic tube of the K&N will benefit you more than a shiny metal tube capturing engine heat. From my experience, don't expect too much in terms of added power from the intake unless you are mating it with a high flow exhaust system.
