    Definitely sounds meaner and a bit more power. I just traced the deck plate with a silver sharpie, then cut the hole with a jig saw and finished trimming with a dremel. Its really easy.

    So the OEM intake is now right about where your tire kicks up shit all over it? I 've never had this apart, but that is how I understand it.

    If you don't want to put the fender liner back in, maybe you could fab up something with a big hose clamp and some sheet metal as a deflector.

    If you have the DP mod, the air will be coming in there, so that wold help you stop ingesting FOD throught the OEM intake, but if you go into muddy/wet areas, you want to close the DP, so that proabably won't work out too well.

    I would put the liner back in or mod/reorient the end of it away from where it is now. You can also go play in the plumbing/ABS aisle at Home Depot for more ideas.

    Or buy a snorkel.

Nice thing was I got the truck for $4000
    I'd do the Deckplate mod, and maybe (since you have some money to spare) buy an off-road rear bumper.
