    Jesus Christ, let's not get into semantics in Adam's build thread. It was a simple question for Fernando if he had a drop in or an open air cone-style filter (typically referred to as a CAI).

    My whole point was if Ferny had an open air filter element I was going to recommend he get a pre-filter to wrap around the filter like a condom. It's a godsend in dusty environments.

    It's people like you that have turned TW into a shit show for those who are genuinely here to learn and help.

    Sorry guys, didnt mean to stir up a shit storm! :eek:

    Its a drop in. I almost got a cold air (only cuz they sound so badass) but i decided against it since I know eventually I will get a snorkel. I actually wanted to buy Adam's but he already had a waiting list :(

    I have seen those. Those look like they help. but as far as the drop in goes, im not sure what to do. And I havent done the deckplate mod either (dont plan on doing it either)

    No worries man, you didn't do anything.

    Nothing you can do with a drop in. Honestly I would suggest going back to a OE Toyota paper filter. They do a far better job in filtering particulates. Not washable, but they are cheap enough to just replace twice a year. After scoring the rotors on my supercharger with the shit that passed though my high flow filter, I'm not a fan for offroad vehicles.

    My .02

    I had a k&n drop in and a cone type filter on my truck. After the 2nd roll when I cracked my intake, I replaced it with a junkyard one that used a paper filter. My old one had all kinds of crap on the inside while the replacement one was still nice and clean. So I need up doing more cleaning on the lower portion of my intake.

    Just imagine what made it passed the intake manifold and down into the cylinders.

    Damn, I like the idea of never having to replace my filter again, but I totally see your point.

    :eek::eek::eek:

    Gawd damn! Pure sex! The hell with the UPS truck, I want my parts ordered to be delivered in this beast :)

    oh, I forgot to ask. Adam, Do you have any pics of your offroad lights at night? I didnt see any in previous pages. I was thinkingof going with an LED bar, but those round pups look great

    I don't think I have any pics. LED bars are great and they put out a nice even light, but don't have the same distance as HIDs. A combination of the two would be ideal with some HID's to throw light way out there and the LED bars to fill in and give a lot of spread. I think JBerry is running a setup like that with HIDs on him bumper and curved LED bar above the windshield.

    If you're not in the habit of driving fast in the dirt at night then an LED bar will be a great light. But I tend to move at a rapid rate quite often at night on some of our trips and I find that even with my HIDs I am close to "outrunning" them and wish I had a bit more distance. That problem is worse with an LED bar. Eventually when I grow up and have money I'll probably add an LED bar but I don't think I'll ever get rid of my HIDs, but I might upgrade them.

    Hey. Adam, how much did it cost, roughly, to get the steal and brackets for you skid plates? I'm thinking about building skid plates or ordering BudBuilts. What do you think?

    Well, the STEEL I used was some remnant peices I got at a local yard. They had some 3x3' peices of 3/16 plate and I took 3 of them and I think I paid $100 for all of that. The brackets were from Ruffstuff. http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/XMEMKIT.html
    I paid $48 for that. Then it was just the welding consumables. So all in all, I was into my full set of skids less than $200. That's almost $100 cheaper than just an IFS skid from Budbuilt.

    Looks like if I go the route of building them from the ground up, it looks like I'll be spending 1/3 to 1/4 of what I would for a full set of BudBuilts. Now I'm definitely interested to go this way.
