No need to modify the flex tube at all and it is self supporting because it angles down naturally.
The small tubes that go into the original box are vent lines only. No IAT on these engines. No MAF either. I welded on a small coupling and left in attached but you could probably leave it off if you wanted to.

Pro on this subject. Jeepsunlimited.com Perfect forum for ya. cool people just like here. And 4wd.com is a plus they always have the stuff you need. I would also check your local B&N for JP magazine. Mostly pointed towards the SWB but they have good things for the cherokee.A good mod is if your good with your hands would be cut donw the old exaust throw in a cherry bomb in that thing will sound killa. Had alot of links but with selling the old jeep lost alot of my favorites. If ya want some contact info IM me without the underscores [email protected]

I spoke too soon about the robustness of my Jeep.

I just got back from a two day trip with it to Vancouver to pick up some Firebird parts.

While there, the front track rod had to be replaced. It almost fell off and I didn't want to chance driving it back to replace it myself.
Darn ball joint on it didn't have a grease nipple and it was rusty dry and worn to the point where the axle was moving when turning the steering wheel and the wheels followed a few minutes later.

$280 for the part and one hour labour = $380.

The replacement has a grease nipple. :P
