    Snorkel with a pre-filter?? Seriously though, that’s impressive that it caught that much with no blow thru.

    Yup, the new JL OE filter works pretty damn good.



    LOL - Seriously!! I was thinking about it the whole time we were on this trip.



    Already done.



    Actually, I got a replacement but it isn't too bad. We ran most of this trip with the windows up.



    This is what you get when you wheel out west.
    So on the JK with a stock filter dirt would of still gotten through it? If so is there a fix for it.

    Funny thing is, I knew there would be a lot of dust - I just didn't realize how much there would be. LOVE me my OE paper filter

    Coming from a guy who used to run CAI's, yes, paper filters work THE BEST at keeping dirt out of your engine.

    I won't lie, I really hate snorkels. Fortunately, the new OE filter on the JL does an awesome job.

    Honestly, I'm not 100% sure. I think the filter media is denser, the panel is bigger and there are a lot more pleats. I think all that help to make a better filter.

    Not yet but I got a new filter for it and will do one soon.

    Indeed. After seeing the mess CAI's and other high flow filters can cause, I am now a firm believer in OE paper filters.

    Yup, I was really expecting the worst but so happy to see just how well the OE filter did.

    I have found the OE paper filter on the JK to do significantly better than any K&N or otherwise but after a run like this, I would still find traces of dust inside the air tube and oil that was dirtier than I would think is normal. In fact, I would normally change both right afterward. This time around, my air tube on my JL looked surprisingly clean and my oil, something I had just changed before the trip, still looked good as well.

    Sorry, when I asked about the cabin filter write up I meant for the JK.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
