    That had to be the dirtiest air filter I’ve ever seen in my life! Always a good idea to carry a spare when wheeling in powder like that! Thanks for sharing your discovery!

    How to Suffocate Your JL Wrangler...

    Well we were technically “Overlanding” on most of the JLX, and that only means one thing; had that new JL been properly equipped with a ‘bespoke snorkel’ set up, you could have avoided the dust build up in the filter. I’m pretty sure next year that Mel will make snorkels mandatory for all the sponsor/vendors and invited participants rigs. Also mandatory, roof top tent and/or off-road trailer........

He does the same trick with cabin filters, but he uses that trick as an air freshener to make the cabin air smell nice and fresh. I use yankee candle clean cotton, but his solution is much cheaper lol.
    LOL!! How did he keep the drier sheets in place? Either way, unlike the JK before which had a filter media that was way more porous, the JL media seems to be much denser and definitely gets the job done without any extra help.

    The JK filter couldn't hold a candle to the JL filter.

    If we were running a CAI, I can guarantee you that we'd have a ruined engine.

    Fortunately, I had a spare that I could pop in as soon as I got home.

    You know, I can't say that I had noticed any drop. Definitely impressive at how well it did.

    And here I thought we were just doing a lot of driving across the desert and mountains. Clearly, a snorkel made by a company who specializes in goods and guidance for the modern man was what I needed.
