    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.

    • 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?

    • 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.

      Upgrade worth doing.

      We're not talking about a mound of performance boost, but definite improvement in throttle response is noticeable. Paired with a new axel-back exhaust - it's great upgrade.

      Great addition to filter out trail dust and breath easier all the time with this set up. CARB approved and easy to install.

      Disappointed.

      Just received and installed my RR Intake today. Normally I prefer Rugged Ridge products but this one missed the mark. I have a 2018 Rubicon Recon Edition, and this intake was a poor fit. I have installed hundreds of cold air intake systems, and lucky for me I was able to modify this one to fit. Not to mention you have to literately shave down the filter's rubber grommet or crush the filter trying to install it. I'm not sure if this one simply got past quality assurance, or if this is how the product was intended. I ordered this because of the other reviews, and I was let down. Other than the negative aspects, it does have a good sound to it under throttle.

      Intake

      The install was simple. Parts were all there. So far so good, I have noticed a little more throttle response as well.

      Cold air intake install

      Easy to install. Sounds great. Keep all hose clamps loose until everything is in place, then tighten them down is my only tip.

      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...(: ]

      Not bad for the money

      The install was pretty much on the money and easy to do with the instructions.... However installing the filter was a chore. Def worth the money tho.

      Rugged Ridge Polished Wow

      I have to admit I was skeptical at first that this piece of gear would do much for my beast. But I was wrong! I get better fuel economy, and it sounds so much more throaty. Now once I put the exhaust I have been looking at on I think it will be even better. The Cold Air Intake was simple to install, and is well worth it. I recommend it to any Jeep owner.

      Quality and value

      Installed in about 1-1/2 hours, very minimal space to work in and it must be put together kind of all at once in order to fit it in accurately. Once you get it in then it's beautiful! ( that's what she said) Noticed a mileage difference and the throttle response is improved. Good bang for your buck!

      Good sound and slight pick up

      This intake has a little lower sound when you get on it and gives a slight pick up. Don't expect a huge change in either sound or performance though. Do the install on a warm day or its hard to work with the rubber connector because this intake is a tight fit. Just make sure the smog certificate is in the box or you will need to contact Extreme Terrain to get it. Mine was missing and after contacting XT the smog certificate was promptly sent out. Aren't they great?!

      Great intake

      This is an awesome intake, the only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is that the filter that comes with this kit is too large by a few cm. I just went to the part store and bought a shorter filter and resolved that issue. Also the mount for the intake to be secured to the heat shield doesn't line up, but doesn't cause any issues. Adds horsepower and a nice deep engine sound. Would recommend to anyone.

      This product is more for higher RPMs but did notice a little bump on gas mileage. Great sound coming from under the hood. Recommend watching a video before installing because directions aren't that great.
