    So, leaving work early early today, I was plowing through snow drifts that had formed 5ft or so into the road. We are the last business before a city park so our road doesn't get much traffic so they were big and fluffy. After a few blocks - BAM - no power at the pedal..won't go above 1500rpm. I'm like WTF?! No CEL, no warnings, nada. I whip a bitch back to the shop and pull in our heated bay to take a look under the hood. There's a fair bit of snow accumulation but nothing extreme. I'm stumped. For some reason I grabbed my intake tube - "gosh this feels real stiff (that's what she said)" I thought. I gave a good squeeze in the accordion area and it sounds like a footstep crunching in snow! I laugh to myself and think this oughtta be good!

    Pull the intake apart and the problem is instantly apparent!

    I quickly remembered Hannibal Safari had CBI front and rear bumpers on this truck before I bought it and the fenders had been generously trimmed! I can reach up into the fender and get my finger tips into the "pac-man" shaped inlet in the fender...who's got an idea for a fix for this?

    Yeah, I think airflow may have been a little restricted? :D

    Yeah it was packed tight in there, but the filters were still dry when I got everything taken apart.

    Get the snow vacuumed out - don't want water going in there.
