    [/ QUOTE ]with the carbs and air cleaner on it will be little above the hood. I have a buddy that fabs Aluminum, he is making a box that will go over the air cleaners with a duct that will go to the fire wall where the blower for the heater used to be. It will draw air from the inside of the cab, keeps the water and mud out of the motor..... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
