Grander Air Flow
Advanced Flow Engineering's (aFe) latest intake for the SRT8 '06-'07 Jeep Grand Cherokee models equipped with the 6.1 V8 includes a high-flow washable/reusable, 360-degree Pro 5R aFe filter for maximum filtration and airflow. This kit also includes a one-piece molded airbox that utilizes the stock inlet for maximum coldair induction. The brushed aluminum cover blocks out engine heat and directs cold air through the filter. The aFe SRT8 intake features the brand-new Pro Dry S filter from aFe. The Pro Dry S filter is the new breed of performance filters providing maximum filtration and airflow without having to use filter oils.
In recent testing, the aFe replacement intake out- flowed the factory intake by 40 percent and produced an additional 18 hp at 5,500 rpm and added 14 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm.

Towing Made Easier
Diversi-Tech's self-locking adjustable dual-ball mount provides a safer, more secure adjustable aluminum hitch. The Diversi-Tech ball mount features locking mechanisms on the adjuster and the hitch pin: no more keeping track of a separate hitch pin. This means it's safer because you're less likely to forget the pin, and it's more secure because the pin can't be stolen.
