    i guess whatever is going to be the best way to go i feel like it would be stupid to put a snorkel on a 2 wheel drive truck i cant go through deep enough water for that but i want to be able to hit the water and mud and not have to worry about my engine gulping it down

    but if that filter is enclosed in the stock air box, theres a good chance (unless submerged) that itll stay dry

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    lol, just stay outta the water and mud and you will not have to worry about it. You're going to get stuck with a prerunner in the mud anyways, even with diff lock if you have it. And water really sucks, lol I have a feeling you will still drive in the mud and deep water anyways.
    But that's just a suggestion, and you can do whatever you want too! lol

    Have fun.
