    it doesnt prevent dust like they claim.. more dust and BUGS yes bugs are normal and are found in airbox or worst clogged up the intake tube arb uses from snokel to air box... (look around on the boards there are some pics and facts on it) .... if you look around, not here in the states mind you in the REAL world, you will see they use precleaners.


    Precleaners are there weight in gold and they will save a engine from foreign matter.. thats why you use a precleaner your paper air filter and kn filter is not enough...

    Next time you see a arb snokel in the desert you will see a precleaner on it not the hook..

    Those look awesome! I can't wait to get mine on.
    I'm thinking of painting my shrouds white, specifically to give it some contrast from the BHLM. Not sure how it would look though since my truck has a gold and black theme, I wonder if white would look weird? Are your shrouds chrome?

    Mine are completely blacked out. I think gunmetal would look good and give some contrast. I def wouldn't do white on your truck but it's up to you

    Cute?! Haha fine :D

    Not meaning to beat a dead horse but I'd agree that the logic is a bit odd. Mine is a DD as well and I still have full length :notsure:

    For future help, just say you got a really sweet deal on them that you couldn't pass up even though they are the wrong size. :D

    I just posted a few in my build thread if you want to check them out!

    I'm so torn on how I feel about them.. I LOVE them when they are on, I just wish they weren't neon yellow when they are off. Hoping it grows on me more

    I cleaned and painted my drums since i had them off checking my brake shoes and adjusting the E-brake. Then found some play in the inner tie rods up front so looks like that will be the next project on the list.

    wiring my rock lights I saw grease everyplace under the truck, I got to the wheel well lights and saw my cv ripped. So I got to 4 places and nothing. All day something was squawking just like my $4100 oops a month ago lower ball joint. I pull in the garage 2" lip slab to driveway then a 6" wide 1/2" drainage deep U in the floor, I heard and felt a pop LOUD. I get out and look (nothing) turn the wheel torquing the rear with all 3 pedals and 2 feet the front end falls. Tire stuffed wheel well. LBJ just popped. I get the axle and ball joint done. I impact everything and i never have an issue. Today I should have looked at the level and how much pressure I was regulating (175psi) on stage level (5 out of 5) stages. I blast it all together. Put 4 LBJ to knuckle bolts in, get 3 started, zippp, zippp, zipp.....zzzzzSNAP. 1100ftlbs too a 14mm M10-1.25-30mm is always bad. Bolt was threaded into the knuckle. I try easy outs, heat oxy/ace and air hammer trying to spin it with a pick.
    So I pull the knuckle out and the upper wouldn't budge after full blows of impacts all 4 of them. 4 foot breaker ball with 3ft pipe NOTHING. I call autozone for an UCA and ball joint combo they have it. Send some one to get it and food/beer. Sawzall the bolts. good to go. Drill went sideways so I welded nut to bolt and sealed the deal. Threw it all back together and MINT. Put the diff drop on while i was at it
    Saturday 8-4 on my back
    Sunday 6-8pm with a few 10 min breaks

    Lubed my belts, their still squealing like a mofo when I start the taco up. Brand new replaced all of them when I did the water pump. Made sure they are all lined up perfectly. I mean doesnt matter much as the squealing stops about 1 min after the truck warms up but my OCD gets the better of me. No buildup of rust on my pulleys either....any ideas? Ill post some pics tomorrow.
