No, we didn't have to do anything to it. It's just a plain 6.5' x 16' tilt bed we used. We put it up there so we didn't have to work in the dirt.

I put in a K&N intake last night. The mosquitos are us alive, but it's in. Pictures to come.

I hate to be that guy...but I will say be careful in water, those cone filters suck in water easily. Mine drank a bit of water really fast with one on & I switched back to factory.

Build looks good though

Yeah I know. I don't play in water too much though, so it should not be a problem.

When I installed my Genright tube fenders on my 05 Rubicon, I had an AFE CAI (I liked the grunt it made), and with the Genright fenders the hood sat up maybe 1/2 taller than it did with the OEM fenders (Thank u Genright....), but after driving down the road in heavy rain I noticed my air filter was soaked!!! I tried a piece of rubber to reroute the air/water, but it still happened. Eventually I traded a friend for his Banks CAI setup and I'll have to say it solved the problem and the Banks does a much better job of protecting the filter vs a K&N, AFE, Airaid, or misc other CAI's for the 4.0L.

I have it now on my 05 LJ and the filter stays dry. I'm not a water guy myself especially with the sandy soil we have around here. It'll tear up seals, bearings, and brakes in a heartbeat. I prefer rock crawling or trail riding vs mud bogs and brown nasty water.

Update:

Last Wednesday 10/23 on the ways home from work my electric radiator fan quit on me while I was in bumper to bumper traffic. The jeep over heated pretty bad. I managed to get it pulled out of traffic after steam started spewing from under the hood. I shut it down and called for help and sat on the side of the freeway for a hour and a half. My dad brought the trailer and I got the jeep restarted so we could load up and get it home. Saturday I got the old fan pulled out and went to autozone bought a replacement. We managed to put the new fan in the shrould from the old one and put it back in.

I've learned flexalite isn't worth a **** and I could have done the same thing for 1/3 the price at autozone.
