Clogged Air Filter!!!

Sunday snow storm in NE Ohio, normal driving and my air cleaner winds up stuffed with snow. Anyone else experience this? Dealer told me I could buy a shield to prevent this...I guess 48k for a new truck wasn't enough $ for them.

Man thats great. So it needs a shield in the fender??? I thought they have been testing these trucks in Alaska, you would think they would find that problem up there or on their huge road trip. One more thing I need to worry about I guess.

Where you plowing with the truck?
Was it the light blowing type snow?
I am in NY and it is only a matter of time before we get more snow.
I will have to keep an eye on this now.
Thanks

Wow thats wild....how did they say it go in, through the side vent? I can imagine the snow would make it through the engine compartment to the back to the air filter....maybe you can just cover the side vent?

Something like it but different, in MI after one nasty night of blowing snow went to start the engine and it would start but die quickly. Was acting like going over rich like the choke was stuck. Upon opening the hood the engine bay was one big packed snow bank, looking like the hood was still shut. After clearing some of it out from around the air cleaner it started and ran fine. The snow packed in from the wind wiping around the other cars pushing it in from the bottom as it passed by and leaving a nice drift behind the rear looking like a air closing add on to smooth air flow around the car.

My 08 F350 recently did the same thing. It had snow in the air filter. and there was a white foamy substance closer to the side of the turbo. that didn't look to good to me... The check air filter was in the info center...I do use the truck for plowing, but come on. My old 7.3 was used for plowing and it never did it...
