So I’m perplexed: I went to four parts stores and all show the 2018 and above JLs with 2 cabin air filters. I have 1 large one. They all didn’t carry that one. It’s a 2 year old vehicle, so I found it odd that no one seems to make it. So does everyone else have 2 in theirs or is this some weird issue I’m just learning about?

I put in the K&N it’s a two piece. The factory one is hard to remove without mangling it. So aftermarket went with two pieces, install and removal is a breeze.

I would recommend getting a reusable. I clean mine every 2-3 months as driving with the doors off can dirty them up quickly.

But when I compared them side by side, the 2 part is smaller. So did you have a one and convert to 2? Did you notice a gap?

The mopar part # is 68301863AA if that helps. The filter is definitely a one piece for the JL.
The K&N filter is also a one piece not two - https://www.amazon.com/VF2064-Cabin...ocphy=9030009&hvtargid=pla-643724940376&psc=1


i think the auto shops may be referring to a 18' JK and not a 18' JL

That is the wrong k&n for the JL. Go to Northridge 4x4. k&n even says they made it 2 piece for simple no bend installation.

When I got my kit they were equal in size to the one piece Mopar throw away.
