well ive been trying to collect pics of all the mods ive done to my jeep be it big or small and i came across this lil cuttage i did a long time ago to free up some air flow..



Im sure a lot of people will say well dont you get a bunch of stuff in there?? and the honest truth is no not really.. i routinely clean my KnN drop in air filter with the recharge kit and i have not noticed any differance in debris it collects. i can say i know my jeep breaths better with out the plastic wall in front of it.. cutting the grill is optional of course but i think it kind of creates a RAM air effect.
so ya im just wondering how much other people thought that the stock set up was way restricting?

I would do that but its to low anyway so I will just add a snorkle... I can't tell you how many times I have almost drowned my ZJ by getting water in that oh-so-low air intake.

welll just a little advice for you.... dont take your jeep in deeper then that where you would get water in the intake cus if you do you chance getting water in the tranny. i can find the thread that a guy put a snorkel on his ZJ and has already gone thru 2 trannys. also your axles are not water proof stock and if water gets in thru the vent tube your in a world of shiot.


so im not to worried about getn water in there cus i know i will have bigger problems then that
