I just got back from a trip up to my cabin in northern MI with Excrement (Lance) and his wife, and Mountainclimber (Eric) and a couple other friends w/out FJs. It was a really good time, and I can't wait for the next trip. Anyhow.... I was using my snorkel prefilter from Extreme Limits Off Road because of the dusty conditions. I cleaned the prefilter after we did about 130 miles on Friday on ORV trials and I was really surprised by how much dirt it caught even though I was the lead truck for the entire run. I wanted to see how well it would perform when I was following in dusty conditions, so I had Eric drive in front of me at 45mph on a 12 mile loop just on dirt roads. The amount of dirt that it prevented from entering the snorkel tube was amazing. After I cleaned the filter I boiled off the water to see how much dirt was actually there. Remember... this was after only 12 miles.





Eric has the pics of the filter before we cleaned it so I'll post those up once he e-mails me copies. Here is a pic of the clean filter before the test run:

It is the Ram Head Cover:

Uni Filter

I like this design better than the Droopie because you don't need to remove the snorkel head to put it on or remove it. Looks like you can get it in blue too if you don't like the red.

Ok, here is what it looked like after the test run. It really works quite well.



And here is a shot that shows how porous it is to minimize restriction. I also throw it on when it rains so I don't have to spin the head.
