No Flames yet. I actually crossed a flooded road early last year during the big floods here to push a floating toyota hilux up onto the road again, and with a pretty strong current she stayed very firmly footed and apart from leaving a dint in the tailgate of the Hilux performed admirably.
hey, good to hear! I guess after seeing that dudes video I just checked a mental box that said stay outta water! I'm happy Urs is rocking and rolling! I certainly want to think of my WK as a pretty solid ad capable jeep, and I'm glad to hear water can be handled if needed. BTW- I drool every time I see pics of your rig, that is impressive!

Omelet- please fab one!

You can do the same thing to an XJ. I helped a buddy do something like that only we used an inline filter. It works great and for a while I was planning to make one for my WK, that is until we finished his. It is a great setup but it makes the intake noise very noticeably louder even compared to a standard CAI!

Haha it can't be as loud as the dual air filters in the back of that "USS Minnow"! I haven't laughed that hard at a vehicle in a long time
