Nice Canopy

Hey Jimbo, I love the canopy really looks god extending behind the Mega Cab. Do you not use the Ramboxes? Or do you have a lifting mechanism for the canopy allowing access? If not, that's 300+ beer cans of wasted space

Yep, Australia, where anything from the US, Canada, the UK and the EU seems to attract an inappropriate premium to be imported and stocked locally. It's only copy cat e that comes from China that is cheap.

I'd also install a snorkel myself as I do with bumpers, exhausts, inter-coolers, etc. Even done several engine swaps over the years. That said I'm getting older and if it's something easier accomplished on a hoist, I'd give someone else the pleasure of the work

Jimbo Here is my neutered black beauty. I reused the lug nuts from my stock 20” wheels, but does anyone know which I need for these wheels? As the current lug nuts don’t accept the plastic cover/cap.

Jimbo Mounted up the 275/70R18 Bridgestone Blizzak LT's to some factory base 18" wheels with sensors (that I sourced from a local guy on Facebook marketplace). They were a b**** to seat, as the sidewalls were almost touching each other, but they're finally on. I'll balance them and get a picture later today, as I find time between working.

My truck is going to look so neutered, but it'll be much safer. Not worth the risk when I'm driving my 2 year old around.

If you are "going camping" then you must have a few river crossings to do and therefore there is nothing conservative about the snorkel. Even without a river crossing or two, I like the idea of a clean dust free air intake away from the engine compartment. Even with the RAM Active Air it is still sucking air from a lot closer to the dust zone when you are on unsealed roads. My 2c


On AEVís website only $420 for the non-prefilter set-up. Iíll install myself. I can only imagine your in a far-a-way land?

But it'd have to be an awfully high tide to need a snorkel anyway. And keeping water out of the air intake is only one small part of creating a semi submersible.


AEV says on their website that it does not create a water tight seal with the Cummins ďActive AirĒ set-up?! Itís more for fresh air intake [emoji849]...less dust up high.
