K&N Air Filter

K&N Air Filter

Part # 33-2114

I've gotten tired of carrying a spare filter around with me when I was off-road.  Once the paper filter got clogged up, you couldn't clean it out.  So I need a filter I could clean.  K&N filters fit the bill perfectly.  If you are off-road and it clogs up all you have to do is rinse them out, let them dry and put it back in.  Make certain when you get back that you clean and oil it properly.

Additional Parts:
None
Tools Needed:
None

I can't say that the Jeep runs better, drives better, gets better gas mileage with this in over the paper filter, because I don't see it.  What I do like is being able to clean all the dirt out of it, instead of throwing away the paper filter.  Some people have said that fine dust has gotten past this and into the intake.  So far nothing has gotten past this filter.  I could see dust getting by if the housing was not securely latched down.  I did keep the old one as a trail spare.  One additional thing that I did was to point the air intake horn into the engine compartment.  The Jeep seemed to run a little better.  The hesitation during 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd shifts did decrease.  I later had the cam position sensor adjusted and the hesitation in now gone, so if you have the hesitation on your 5 speed have the dealership take a look at this adjustment.

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
