dude, your buddy is right, you dont even need an air filter in your Jeep. just take it out that way ALL the mud and water will run out the drain holes in the intake manifold.

if you want to go through an engine fast, then yes, take the filter out.

#2 your intake manifold does NOT have holes in it.

You failed to read the thread. He posted it in the General Discussion pics thread. He will never see the answers here. However, you are right about the manifold not having "vent" holes for water.

I thought the intake manifold had 8 drain holes on the side/bottom?

if your intake manifold had any holes in it you would be asking for problems. Even a crack in an intake manifold would cause many problems. It would NOT run correctly.

I think he should just take a K&N cone filter and fasten it directly to the top of the throttle body so it's pointing straight up. You will have to cut a hole in your hood and it will look like a custom blower!!!! Plus it will raise the air intake up almost above your hood!!!!!

They don't get your sarcasm.And these "holes" even have devices in them to control the flow.

depends on the offroading you do, muddy and wet, just keep the box. dry dirt or dock trails an intake is ok.
