By design any water/debris will just collect at the very bottom of the hard snorkel tube. Just be sure to clean it once in a while so it doesnt smell. Facing it rearward makes it harder for the engine to get cold air at highway speed - the intake is ment to face forward to collect cool dry air. The only time it really needs to face rearward is during typhoon type down pours or if you like to hit puddles at 50mph to make a big splash.

I paid $300 for mine

Thanks for the info. Most of the driving i do here on kodiak island is 45 or below. But i suppose it wouldnt be to hard to rotate it when need for off roading.

At minus 45... I guess water crossings are out of the picture

Finally put my hardtop on in advance of the snow coming this week. Then washed it at the u-do to get all the pine needles off the top. New air filter installed, checked and re-gapped the plugs, tightened up exhaust flange (it still works loose every once in a while) and reset o2 codes due to loose flange. Also ordered new bushings to rebuild my POS Front LCAs until I decide whether to buy new lift or not. Also ordered some Eastwood internal frame paint in prep for some frame paint and TLC.

Just changed O2 sensor, ignition coil, and crank position sensor. Seems to run better. We'll see if any of these changes stop the random sputtering and rough running when cold.

Who makes that transmission support? I think I like that. Any problems with it?
* edit*
So a flat skid just uses the factory nutserts in the frame to fasten to?
One more edit lol. Is there vibration isolation?

Fixed my headlight that had a broken mount that has been flopping around for the past year. Also rigged up a hood latch out of a carabiner since I smashed mine climbing a tree.

You did a great job with that.
To get to that point what is needed , minus the support you made.

Novak transfer case cable shifter
did you have to use a super short sye?
DC drive shaft
obviously need adjustable control arms
do you use a motor mount lift or no?
what am I not thinking of?
Thank you for the response.

There is a hangar at the front of the cat, which is welded to the frame. You just can't see it in that pic.
