Default 2008 KK - Cabin Air Filter?

I searched, I really did, before posting this. All the results involved KJ series vehicles, that I saw. Does the KK series have a cabin air filter?

Rock Auto lists several replacements.

The owner's manual mentions it, but says nothing about replacing one.

I just inherited my '08 and drove it 1,650 miles from IL to AZ, where the odometer rolled onto a whopping 50,000 miles. Nice vehicle!

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it does. It's in two pieces, accessible from behind the glovebox.

In the meantime, since I posted the question, I flipped down the glovebox lid, which is simply done by unhooking the retaining latches on both sides of the open glovebox door and lowering said door. I took a look at the blower housing...and there's no fitting for the filter housing. I watched a YouTube video on changing out a KK series filter, so I know what I was looking for (and in the video, the 'mechanic' put his filter sections in upside down), but my '08 doesn't have it. Bummer, since I already ordered a filter from Rock Auto.

I'll look again, but it appears the answer to my original question is "Maybe."

Donít give up yet! It was a long time ago, but someone posted about ADDING the filter to their KK because theirs didnít come with it either. Do some searching online because itís definitely been done before.

Probably added in Ď09?

I had the dash apart on my Ď08 this past weekend to fix the mode door and I definitely donít have a filter back there behind the glovebox. It looks like one COULD be there and Jeep just decided to not do it yet in Ď08.
