Just a question. I am about to install my aem intake on my 4.7 tomorrow but my only concern is since the directions tell you to remove the entire housing for the filter, will that endanger my intake from picking up mud or water? 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?

Two cars I don't work on:
1987 Buick GN - Daily Driver
1985 Olds 442 - Daily Driver - WHITE - lowrider - under restoration for ever
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.
