Its not a big problem. It is more likely if you spend a lot of time wheelin. I have been in constant rain for a month and mine has not gotten wet.

How bout if you have zoodad done? Does that multiply your chances of having a wet filter by like 10? I would think so especially in the winter time.. snow blowing in, and then for those of us who plow...

Yes I could see snow getting compacted in to there but I still think that you will be just fine.

The only thing my filter sucks in like a mother****er is lots of air, and dust. I shaked my filter yesterday.. had it on about 2 mos. Thing was LOADED with dust.

I was wondering about the same thing. Getting water on the filter. I've had my 6637 in since mid-summer. Is there much of a problem with water /snow getting under the hood and soaking the filter. It seems my fuel mileage is a little lower now. don't know if I got the fliter wet or just the winter fuel blends that are out now. I know they make a fabric similar to gore tex that I've used on the intake track of my snowmobiles. SLP sell it in about 18 inch sq.pieces. Thinking of making a tube out of it to go over the filter. Unless it would restrict the air flow.

Have you cleaned it since you installed it? I put mine in about 2 mos ago and just yesterday I took it out and beat it against the ground and it was DUSTY. I dont really drive anywhere particularly dusty or anything.

I have seen prefilters on the 6637. I dont think its a major thing to worry about but mine is in the K&N box so that will help keep it sheltered alittle bit. It wouldnt hurt to put one on.
