Clean Air Scoop with Filter

Has anyone tried this? Since the Wrangler doesn't have a cabin filter, the dust just comes in. I live in Nevada, so it is dry and dusty. With the summer heat on its way, I am looking for options to run the AC without filling the vehicle full or dirt.

I know using recirculate is an option, but I was just curious if anyone has used this product or something similar to it.

Seems like a problem in the rain to me. The filter would get totally wet in heavy rain wouldn't it?

Yeah, I think it would make more sense to adapt a filter to fit just over the air intake within the cowl itself (which I know people have done, I just don't think there's a direct-fit solution), since in theory that shouldn't get very wet.

I like this idea. When I lived on a gravel road and people passed the other way I wouldn't have had to hurry to turn the fan off.

I jerry rigged some foam as a filter but the other day I got an unexpected surprise in a box of filters we use here at work, lots of leftover air filter material as packing material.

I am going to make a sock type filter that you slip over the air intake under the cowl, simple and quick. Then once in a while you remove the filter and blow the dust out with compressed air and put it back on.

BTW my filter works very well and has dropped the amount of dust out of the vents a LOT.

So how does this sound? Anybody interested? Of course I will have to work with the Admins here so I follow the rules about selling stuff.
