    nice, but I would have gone for some larger tubing through the hood for a little better breathing.

    I think it has the potential to suck in a good bit of water driving at highway speeds in a decent rain. And if it ever gets caught on or hits something it is going to do some damage because it won't flex at all.

    He's got it going to his air box, so a bit of water wont hurt.

    I agree if that catches a good size branch it will tweek. But the fab work is top notch. Just got my tube bender and chop saw yesterday, the movers cracked my blade, but all the bender parts made the move.

    i looked at it and i love it. he said he did something to avoid the water being intaken but i didn't really follow that part. sadly im one of the guys who buys sh!t and bolts it on. the only thing i can do well is stereo. maybe thats why my jeep looks so stock, but sounds great.

    From what I understood about what he did to avoid water, the tubing on the upwards portion comes up a 1/4 inch into the tube that he has over his windshield. I think as long as the tube above his windshield is angled downwards toward the opening, I don't see any water getting in.
