Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of
the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Rugged Ridge Cold Air
Intake, manufactured and marketed by Omix—ADA, 460 Horizon Drive, Suite 400, Suwanee,
Georgia 30024, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156
of the Vehicle Code for the following Jeep vehicles listed:

The Rugged Ridge Cold Air Intake consists of following main components: Conical
element air filter, air intake tubing from throttle body to filter, and all necessary mounting
hardware for proper installation. The stock air temperature sensor is retained in its stock
location and orientation. No other changes are made for proper installation. Installation
of the Cold Air Intake requires the removal of the stock air filter housing and intake
air tubing. If the stock air filter housing contains the vehicle‘s tune—up & emissions
control decal, a replacement decal must be placed in a similar location. Kit does not
require an ECU upgrade.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Rugged
Ridge Cold Air Intake will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Rugged Ridge Cold Air Intake,
as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

This exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data, from the SEMA Garage,
Diamond Bar, California, on a 2015 model year 3.6L Jeep Wrangler certified to the


LEV 2 ULEV emission standards and tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure
(SFTP USO6) test cycle.

Test results showed that the Rugged Ridge Cold Air Intake when installed on the vehicle
did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards during the
FTP and SFTP. This Executive Orderis also based on the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1)
testing conducted on the same test vehicle. The Rugged Ridge Cold Air Intake when
installed on the test vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II
monitoring.

The Air Resources Board reserves the right in the future to review this Executive Order and
the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part
continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE
RUGGED RIDGE COLD AIR INTAKE.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made with
respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the order, in
which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the
proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of
the request and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the
hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   ZS          day of July 2016.
