    Review & Install Video

    Intake. The polished mandrel bent aluminum intake tube can resist air turbulence because of its precisely placed wide bends. The polished aluminum surface then provides a smooth, obstruction-fee path for the air to flow through. You'll get a steady stream of oxygen-rich air to your engine, and a good looking chrome intake tube to boot.

    Filter Specs. The Rugged Ridge performance air filter is made from multiple layers of woven synthetic fabric. Not only does the high-flow conical design draw in a massive amount of air, but those multiple layers also filter out dirt particles so small, you can't even see them with your naked eye. And when it comes time to get rid of all that dirt, all you have to do is wash it with plain water. You never have to oil it, or buy special soap.

    Additional Features. The Rugged Ridge cold air intake is designed to give V6 Wrangler JK owners as much as 10 extra horsepower, 12 more ft-lbs of torque and 10% better fuel economy. Of course, results will vary depending on your particular Jeep, and road / terrain conditions. But you'll certainly feel a difference in the throttle response once you install it. And it's designed by the Jeep experts at Omix-Ada (they make OEM Jeep replacement parts), so it'll withstand as much abuse as a factory Jeep part.

    CARB Certified. Best of all, this Rugged Ridge Cold Air Intake is 50 state legal under D-779.

    Application. This Rugged Ridge Polished Aluminum Cold Air Intake is specifically designed to fit on the 2012-2018 Wrangler JK with the 3.6L V6 engine.

    I am trying to figure out which water cover to buy to fit this filter. Does anyone know the size or dimensions of the filter? Not really into major water crossings but you never know what may happen on the trail.

    Wardman

    • The dimensions of theRugged Ridge Polished Aluminum Cold Air Intake air filter is, 10 1/2" long , the Outer Diameter on one end is 5 1/4" and the other end is about 6 1/4" & the Inner Diameter where it connects to the hose is 3 1/2" .

    With this intake can you later down the road install a snorkel?

    Gwrangler9

    • Unfortunately, you would be unable to use the Rugged Ridge Polished Aluminum Cold Air Intake in conjunction with a snorkel. Snorkel kits normally replace the air intake system.

      Street Player?

      Quality product (so far), Moderate install time (I'm new at this), Satisfying performance. I was already being challenged and discounted by drivers who, I assume, don't know the ingredients of the lowly JK 2-DR Sport, but the sounds enabled, at various RPM-levels, by this CAI is instigating some unpleasantly aggressive behavior in my fellow commuters. I don't want to be a menace to the local driving community. I don't know if this lovely piece of technology has improved the dyno-performance of my JK. I have noticed a sudden MPG decrease (perhaps I'm no longer driving in 'Econo-mode'). I want to see if a Cat-back system install will further improve my driving satisfaction...(: ]

      The best bu I've made for my Jeep.

      After installing this cold air intake, i instantly felt my jeep gain some torque and a much better sound. This intake gave the jeep a much deeper throaty sound to it. This was the exact sound I was looking for. Also the product was very easy to install.

      Exactly what I needed

      After putting on 33s from stock tires, I lost some power in my 2013 JK Unlimited. This intake restored that and then some. It has improved throttle response and I am getting 17mpg up from 16 on highway, which was a little bonus. Feels a little peppier than with the stock tires now. Sounds ok, I was expecting something different I guess. A bit more throaty I suppose.

      This intake is awesome

      This thing is awesome. As I have never installed an air intake before the directions were awesome. Detailed exactly what to do. You immediately notice the loud roar when you give it the gas. As far as mpg goes, I've only had this installed for a week and I've noticed 1 mpg the gallon more Would recommended this product to all.

      It's a great product!

      This cold air intake is a great product. I am impressed with it, and how easy it was to install. The main upgrades were the sound of my Jeep Unlimited 2015, the horsepower gain , better response and increase on miles per gallon, If you want better performance, you better get it!...

      great product.

      I installed this in my new Jeep Wrangler unlimited with the 3.6 penstar motor. I removed stock intake for this and man what a difference there has been. For sound of the motor is intense when you hit the gas you will hear it for sure. The pick up is pretty good and has increased power to the tires to be sure. The torque is about the same I think not much of an increase there but for the cost its an easy and fun upgrade. I would recommend this product to anybody that has a stock JK it will certainly add an aggressive feel to a timid motor.
