Brisbane, Queensland. It's a great place to live, although I'm constantly yearning for American shops, especially for Basses and PC parts. Say I want to buy a Graphics Card, which, in the US, costs $100, it costs around $200 here. SSDs don't come any cheaper than $139 for 64GB for the bottom of the line Kingston and generally $900 for a decent 100-150GB Intel SSD. *sigh*

Here you can see my K&N cold are intake, the chrome you see I had to buy that separate from the kit to make it work, the black duct is the original stock as the duct that came in the kit doesn't fit with a 1" throttle spacer.

I'd watch that K&N. Strickly speaking CAI's have no business on a Jeep. Most people on the forums refer to them a Cold WATER intakes. Just make sure you don't try to do any water crossings with it on there or you run the risk of hydrolocking the engine.

What wheels and tires did you end up with?
