lol cant wait to see what all the guys on here have to tell u! cold airs dont do ****. just take the snorkel out of ur intake box and bam! youve got a cold air. but im sure other ppl will blow up this thread on why cold airs are a pointless waste of money.

Cut the air box off and hose clamp on a $30 cone filter. Saves time and money. Doing Mine tommorow on my 08 4.0L. Iv done it on other vehicles and it sounds and works just as good as the "real" thing.

lol no kidding. To the OP, if you actually want any kind of a 'cold' air intake you're going to have to fab up some kind of homebrew ram air system
