Thanks... the nose guard is from www.metaltechcage.com (great kit and low price as well).

The fan is a 16" Derale electric -- got it to fit on the stock radiator -- thought it would do the trick :( it didnt.

Now I put that HUGE Summit radiator in and I think my overheating days are over 8)

What are you gonna do when it rains/snows on that exposed K&N filter you have up there :eek:

I don't see that working too well in any adverse weather conditions... :-\

true... my thoughts were that when I am driving throught mud, rain, etc. I get just as much or more water, mud, etc. on that filter under the hood as I will get where it is now... but not sure (will wait and see if it is a problem).

If it is I will fab up some kind of shield for the top or put a box under the hood and run the snorkel out of it (but I am reasonably sure this will work great for how I use my cruiser) :D

The nose guard on the site doesn't picture the front bars that come down in front of the hoop. did thse come with the kit or did you add those?

i has the same question about the snorkel. i am running a weber and dont have the original type air cleaner, so if i wanted to do a snorkel it would have to be something like that. right now i dont have anything but went through a huge puddle the exposed filter got soaked and the engine died for like 20 minutes. i found on ebay and small 5 inch air filter that comes with a louvered metal top, should work great, similar to the hummer style air cleaner. here is what it looks like- http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2451426293&category=34198

the bars that come down in front did NOT come with the kit... I just put those together in that I did not want the nose guard to fold if I did an endo or hit it wrong (just adds more support to the solution). Would have been nice to know what winch I was going to install so I could have done that thinking up front but oh well... will be easy to change if needed.

I would NOT use the filter that is shown on ebay but it really depends on what engine you are running :D The RamJet 350 pulls a lot of ponies so it needs a great deal of air as well... You will notice that the filter on my snorkel is not just a round cone... that is because the motor may need more air than that can provide so they made it wider. I do not think a small 4" filter will work on a v8 -- will likely have to pull air SO HARD to get air that it may start pulling bits of dirt through as well -- YOU DO NOT WANT THAT! :eek:
