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!

We will see! It has been on my list of things to do, but it is not at the top just yet

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
