I read on one of the other sites that someone was complaining of the very thing. I believe it was on a cc truck though.

If you are really concerned I would order yourself the Ford Pre-Filter for Snow plowing.

Plow from November to April and never had a problem. No pre-filter on my truck. Wouldn't worry about a thing.

No, but watch that lower valance. I bet Ford sells a ton of replacements after good dump of snow. I now take mine off each winter!
