Ok, just wanted to check, I like to romp in the mud from time to time and I wanted to be sure I wouldn't be endangering my engine.

There won't be a bottom cover so I was just wanting to to know if anyone else had this issue.
I think you would have to suck an awful lot of water to have it cause a problem. (like damaging a sensor or causing hydro-lock.). Are you forging through streams or something?

I'd like to keep my options open, infact I hope each day a stream crosses my path just so I can cross it. So far, no such luck. I live in Toronto, Ontario.

I do not normally go deep into streams since I do not have 4x4. I did install mine and the instructions are very easy to install and the computer did eventually reset it self after a day or so(the engine light was on for a day). I have done some slight mud puddles and stuff and gone into a dirt field to test and it worked great. No lie though, when you get up on the throttle, she breathes fire!!

I wanted to touch base with y'all about the AEM Brute Force polished intake. I got her installed a month or so ago, she sounds great! She runs very well even with the intake being aftermarket. No real hiccups either, just straight performance. I have noticed better throttle response off road with the intake and even through some light mud and water. The mileage difference is really just about .5 - 1.5 mpgs better. So it really didn't help with that but the noise she makes when you get up on it, its just worth the whole procedure. I would recommend this one for sure!

Another satisfied AEM customer here. 2007 4.7. I've ran intakes on a lot of vehicles for a lot of years, so I had no qualms about installing an AEM product on my Jeep. Noticed a slight mileage bump, but that wasn't the point at all. The install is straight forward, instructions are good. I had to flip my cruise control box 180* and that wasn't mentioned, but wasn't hard to figure out.

Do any of you guys know if the AEM air bypass valve would fit with the intake on a 4.7 if so what size would it be is it the 2.50 - 2.75 or the 3.00. Any feed back would be appreciated.

I have the K&N CAI on mine and I DO forge streams and romp through mud and over trails. No problems.

Do you have any protection on your filter for sure you have the bottom part of the airbox right?
