Re: cabin air filter

the holder is junk i had to use tape to hold it so the cover doesnt fall off, the clips arent really tight. Good thing to have though

Re: cabin air filter

i had no problems.... My cover snaps in fairly tight. As far as water, Ive had mine in since May last year and no issues at all. If anything the air seems warmer in the winter and colder in the summer.

Re: cabin air filter

Anyone know why the replacement air filter is more expensive than the kit which includes a filter? Replacement filter = $60 and the kit = $47.

Re: cabin air filter

I got the Fram replacement for just over $20. It looks better that the MOPAR part and is much cheaper. It has Arm & Hammer baking soda helps lock up odors to keep the air inside the vehicle smelling fresh.

I just got it in the other day.

Re: cabin air filter

I did this upgrade and replaced the filter with a new Fram Fresh Breeze filter. They make the interior smell better and can filter up to 98% of pollutants and particles out of the air.

Re: cabin air filter

I just ordered one of these from Just for Jeeps, I read Stugots installation instructions and I hope the install goes smoothly for me as it did for him. I will update once I install the cabin filter kit. How often does the filter need to be changed? Thanks
