    For what it's worth. There are 5 XJ's in the family. My wife's 01 gets the best mileage I believe because her jeep has the best homemade cold air intake. All the jeeps have the same tires,exhaust setup, are all autos etc. I believe the cold air helps.

    On the cold air end...
    What does the letter inlet look like?
    Or does it just pull from the front corner?

    I hope I understand your question. The silver colored dryer vent material runs down to the vicinity where the hole is for the factory fog lights. this is where the bulk of the cooler air comes in.

    "fat finger" I meant "O" outer ... not "litter" ~ and then my phone must have fixed my spelling
    But yes, that does answer the question.
    ... did you remove the lights? Or just use the gap around the edge?

    I was thinking of something along those lines since the factory box is right there and it'd be the most convenient spot.

    This is apparrently the original air intake point on the early models ... and blocked off on the later models.

    Might be useful to you ???


    I hate watching simplicity and reliability being ruined by bureaucracy and technology.

    I wonder why they blocked it off... The inlet is still there, now it is trying to suck air from around a wall. My 97 wasnt blocked off.
    Im doing a cowl intake on Mine. Not very hard and seems to be the best place to get cool air. Keeps water out too.

    I'll have to check.
    Maybe I just haven't dug around that much.
    ...there isn't anything currently connected there. Just sucks from the front corner area
