    Fine dust in air intake tube

    Hi guys

    Did lots of gravel road over December lots of dust.

    I have AEV snorkel with stock air filter all sealed properly.

    I took off the intake tube between the air box and throttle body and noticed there is some fine dust in it but not a lot you have to shine a flash light in there to see it.

    Is this normal or not?

    Thanks in advance

    Pretty normal. Does the snorkel have a pre-filter?

    If you're concerned about it or tend to wheel in the dust a lot, that would be a place to start. I'd assume AEV would have one available.

    I see they do have them available but not sure if I like the look, if the little bit of dust in the tube is normal I can live with it.

    Yes can imagine, but it was like that before the snorkel as well. Well I guess you will always have some dust passing the filter.

    Fine dust in air intake tube

    The standard head on the snorkel does nothing for dust. The pre-filter spins at a high RPM to clean the air of most dust. Iíve never had any residual dust get past my filter. Iíve run both a K&N and moose filters behind it, and they both stay very clean for a year plus.

    I agree, they donít look the best. But the truly do work. Since you already have the AEV snorkel, itís an additional $135 for the filter.

    After running it for 4 years, and I wouldnít doing anything but run it. The only issue is that you got to watch out for branches.

ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
