I live in florida so I play in the mud every once in awile. But afterwords the next couple weeks when I turn on my ac its like a sand storm coming out of the vents. I was wondering if its from the mud being washer down the windshield in to the vent infront of the hood. and after it dries out its pick up by the ac. And if anyone has any ideas to stop this.

I've had the same thing happen to me after mudding. I don't think there's a way to stop it, unless you block off the cowl vent before washing all the mud off. If you run it in recirculation mode (cabin air), it won't suck the sandy air in from outside.
If you're like me though, the windows are down while you're running through the mud, and it goes directly into the vents anyway!

Yes. This is where the air comes from for the cabin air inlet on the passenger side right behind the windshield wiper motor. Through those vents below the windshield is also where the dirt and leaves get in that plug up the drains. on either side.
