why does everyone remove the factory cold air intake and turn it into a hot air intake with a filter that is no where near as good as a paper element ??? These engines do not breathe enough (especially with factory exhaust!) to be restricted by a paper element filter.....

:confused2::dunno::banghead:

The K&N CAI for our Explorers comes with a heat shield that, when the hood is closed, actually seals it off from the engine bay. It was the first upgrade I did when I got my Explorer and I’ve had zero issues with it. Volant used to make a sealed high flow system back in the day with a high flow filter and a larger diameter tube that I heard was fantastic.

Mine doesn't seal off that well, but it's only an issue when I'm stopped. I pull ambient temp + 5 degrees or so when I'm moving.

Mine seals so fantastically that the entire top of the seal is red from paint rubbing off of my hood.

Fine. There.

I had the LED bulbs that plug in directly but because they're so short, they throw all the light down the door. The circuit boards aren't much better.
 






























@hoffa06 There is something about those pic's that makes your truck look like a model photoshopped onto a background.

LOL, especially the second picture.

I’m pretty sure it’s a real truck, but there is some kind of enhancement going on .....
 






Still looking good at 193,000 miles. Just replaced the headlight assemblies, phlips crystal vision bulbs, added a bug shield, 265/75 16 Cooper AT3s, and a flowmaster delta 50.

Figured I should update since it has been 5 months since these happened but. Lifted it, got rid of the light bar (on my buddies jeep now) and got new rims + tires.

I love the roof lights you have Dom, and the hidden light bar you have Drake. Might have to borrow some of yalls ideas.
