I finally decided to take them down as short as Coloradocrawler's and see how that works-out. Here's some pics...as well as some pics I did for another member that wanted a parts list for this install.

Getting ready for a three day camping driving trip, I checked my air filter.  I had just cleaned it before a one day drive (60 miles) and thought it would be okay for the three day adventure.  Nope.  It was filthy.  It is a Uni filter, but some fine dust still made it through to the intake housing.  I have been swamped with work and family obligations but after this trip I will be doing the above mod.  Two reasons:  Way easier to change out a filter mid trip and help eliminate the fine dust particles in the intake, thereby adding years to the life of the top end.  I hate the stock air box.  It's placed in the worst place for it and it's hard to get into.

I appreciate all the work you have done, NMK, to make the CF a better machine and your willingness to help others.  If I deviate from your design I will post up some pics for others to consider.

I appreciate your kind words. This whole thing was an act of trial and error and evolution. Even now where it is I still get a lot of dust in both the first filters and am wondering if it wouldn't be wiser to pull the fresh air from either the front or from inside the cab area. When I had the stacks near the top of the roof, it was minimal but after the first lowering it was noticeably worse...and now with then even lower...well, we'll see. I'm also headed out for a 5-day camping trip which will give me a change to see how that...and the new Bandit rear spring work out. We leave today in about two hours. Just the final hook-up left and we be gone!  :)
