Default air box mod for 1997 4.0

I tried to follow the air box mod listed by STL, but ran into a little trouble because my box is not boxed shape, its cone shaped. I can get the filter out but get stuck there. Can anyone offer me some assistance. Here is a pic with the filter out. Would the air box be the black cylinder at the bottom? What do I need to do to complete the air box mod?
Thank You

Why bother? Fwiw, the airbox STL modified was a different type. Does it even apply to yours?

Does yours even have a snorkel-like restriction in there? The "airbox" would be that circular plastic shroud at bottom of (& cut off by) your earlier photo. It gets air from this black plastic L-shaped intake tube located under the fender. The "mod" would be to remove a hole-reducing device from between the airbox and intake tube, if it even exists. Does it exist?
