Good stuff here! Thanks all. Mopar CAI is now available to order as stock configuration. Debating if I should get it on my diesel. Can someone shed light on CAI on a diesel?
The thing I like about the factory-order option is that the factory cuts the hood. And, at $500, is cheaper than buying the unit and having it installed. That said, I'm not a CAI intake fan (but this is intriguing).

$495 is not a bad price from the factory. Think I paid $350 just for the part. So $150 to have them do it is not bad at all.

What did you guys do with the wire? I had it installed today for $140 (but the install process left a 1" hairline crack in the paintjob, blows) they can probably fix tomorrow, but maybe just an excuse to get a Rubi hood later

I zip tied the slack to that small radiator hose. Was the crack from removing the hood or the hood cut? $140 is pretty cheap.

The crack happened when they were attaching the vent, towards the very end. Do you usually run with your vent open? Could a carwash really do much damage if you forgot to attach the door?

Shouldn't be an issue if it's on a conveyer with the engine off. There are still plenty of drain holes unless you blocked them off.

I would put mine on going through a car wash. But I only hand wash my Jeep, so its much easier for me to remember to install the door since I am out walking around it. Besides pressure washing or heavy rain I always leave the vent open.
