I have an '06 WK Overland with the 5.7L HEMI and am looking at different intakes. I came across the Airaid Jr. 'intake' which replaces everything in between the stock air box to the throttle body. Most of the other intakes available use a similar tube but add a cone filter and rudimentary heat shield. Personally it seems like the stock airbox set-up will utilize more outside cool air and ward off heat soak better than the intake set-ups which replace the airbox. Opening up the box and drawing in hot underhood air seems like it would negate going to an intake at all. Some of the intakes (IFIK, AFE and Volant) replace the stock air box with their own units and draw in air the same way the stock unit does...Any reason to go with any of these other intakes (Airaid, AFE, Volant, K&N) vs the Airaid Jr. and a dry element filter???

I'm familiar with the BWoody intakes but steer away from it as it's not a street Jeep, same reason why I lean towards the Airaid Jr as it retains the stock water fording abilities of the WK. I'm also wondering if most of the intakes that replace the stock box diminish protection of the motor from water/mud/dirt/etc?

Airaid is in the process of developing a new CAI for the 5.7.

I will try to provide more info when I return from vacation around the 10th of July.

Hmmmmm, really...Can you say if it's more of an offroad intake or geared more towards the 'street jeep' crowd?

Any idea of a time frame? I'm definitely ready to pull the trigger and get an intake

Not sure that there would be any difference in the off road buys and the street crown buyers.

I have no idea on time line but they are sponsors so they might post that when they see people are interested.

Gentleman,

We are NOT working on a "New" system. We currently have 2 great systems available for the 5.7L Commander.

1. AIRAID Jr. (Replaces Intake Tube & OEM Paper Filter)



2. AIRAID Intake System.



Thanks,
David

Sorry, that was my misunderstanding. Thanks for setting the record straight.
