just did this last week let me tell you it was a real pain in the ass took my longer to get the damn thing out then it did to install the whole intake. i had a buddy hold the intake tube and i pryed and pulled in it with a flat head screwdriver be very careful doing this not to damage the sensor. it takes a lot of force

i moved my coolant tank out of the way and i pushed the inner fender well inwards as it is able to flex faily easily and i had the filter mounted and tightened down on the intake tube then pushed it into the bumper it was pretty tight but i did not scratch mine and found it easier then laying under neath and mounting filter afterwards.

Turn your tires to the right, jack the jeep up a bit on the passenger side (use a jack stand) and go from underneath with the filter. Wipe with your finger a very little amount of WD-40 around the rim of the opening on the filter and it'll slide right on.
