    Urd is fully exposed by design, but shields are availavble to counter buffeting and light/med rain if 1 has a mesh grill.

    Hydrophobic socks also are available

    Lot's of stuff (-;
    Why not just put the intake behind the grill, and leave the filter under the hood in a box? then your filter wouldn't be exposed. Just trying to think outside the box a little

    Red hot glass pack muffler dumped preaxle raptor liner bed and top rails and fenderflares and rocker panels. Hunter side steps. Plasti-dipped upper fenders and emblems. satin black spray paint here and there inside and out. 5100's set to 1.75" up front and modified zuk mod coil spring lift for about 2" in rear paired with 5100 also. C channel front bumper.
    I located on behind the passenger fog light but it didn't work well I had originally had it under the hood ran with 3" 90*(I have a vid on YouTube under yota243 homemade intake) and just bent some 3" pvc and pieced it together went out the stock fender well hole. Neither design really worked for me, shifted funny and threw a rich in both banks code because the intake is obviously slightly more than 3" and though i was putting more air in than I actually was. If Ur truck start shifting into 5th oddly this info may save u a year of trouble shooting as I did. Just a heads up but looks great man

    nice work :)

    This would be neat...
    if I didn't live in the SW

    but down here in the summer...
    the hot air rising from the tarmac
    would likely erase any gain.

    doubt it would work for me...
    but it's cool to look at :thumbsup:

    Hate snorkels, but at least
    they might intake cooler/cleaner air
    higher, above the tarmac's surface.
    And above some dust during trail work.

    Trail work tends to find me in line with a train.
    being behind that dust cloud, clogs filters quick.

    Having the filter/intake right in front could be a disadvantage.

    For city dwellers... this mod could be worthy.
    but trail ho's probably not so much.


    interested in seeing the dyno results before/after

    Hey dually, :)
    I admire your creativity to actually build your own intake.

    The unsheltered filter being blasted by a particulate airstream has a very simple solution. It would be very easy to fabricate a simple guard like this one to keep particles from directly impacting your filter medium.
