As long as you dont drive through a large mud puddle or large rain storm puddle. You are good to go.
I wouldnt worry about a heavy rain, most likely when you are washing you are aiming the hose directly by the crack of the hood. I wouldn't worry about it.

They make pre-filters that are water resistant that well protect you better from rain. Amsoil and k&n both make one.

I believe Duane had or has a deal going with the 3rd stikes CAI regarding filter covers. They come is assorted colors. Protects the actual filter from dust and other nasty stuff lol.

Upgradeing the filter itself would not be a bad idea, when i changed my filter after a month i noticed dirt stuck to the inside bends of the pipe. Its a great intake but it just comes with a cheaper filter.

They are available for $25. Haven't had time to put them on the website yet though. If you want one, shoot me a PM.

Hmm. I ran one on my truck for over a year and never had that happen. In fact, my filter hardly even got dirty... Do you do a lot of off roading or something?

Yes, the lower priced ones.....the kits have the option of having the AEM dry filter added to them for the price of the filter.
