Where did you get your pieces for the intake tube? I'm thinking of redoing mine... again.

I thought those intakes could be flipped around so the intake is pointing at the firewall?

Then you have to put up with the whistle sound. Racers probably wouldn't have a problem with that but personally I wouldn't want that on a trail rig.

Your intake looks allot like mine. I think I may try a shroud on the bottom side of the filter, but will probably rework it to pull air from the hood or fender. The last time I checked iat (incoming air temps..) while doing some tuning at the dunes, I was pulling 170 degree iat. That is way to hot and makes for allot of power loss. Just my .002......

I sure dig the bumps and coilovers. How much better do the coilovers work than airshocks (mostly concerned with at speed bumps)?? thx.

as long as its quieter than my damn boggers at 50 mph for 4 hours

all my trucks are psd's so im used to a whistle, and im sure it would just blend into the rest of the motor noise and whatnot without too much annoyance

the ride and the way the whole jeep works is 100% better. the air bumps are worth every penny. you can cruise through stuff now without any hard hits. the old setup unloaded and the poly bumps worked but were not a soft impact like the air bumps. i am going to move the back coilovers in and up yet and tune the shocks and bumps in. becky smiled all weekend except for the 10 minutes i drove it.

Not in my experience, having your intake in the cab sucks asshole
