Maybe in a wet environment but not in dry dusty conditions I wouldn't ....................... I even use a pre filter in snorkel as an engines biggest enemy is dirty air. My 2 cents worth

Do you mean do you need to use a air cleaner. a air cleaner removes fine dust.

mate you might as well open the aircleaner box and load it up with dirt!!!

for the 20- 50 dollars for an air cleaner as aposed to a new motor, From $500 to $20 thousand dollars or even more.

In air craft its called FOD or foriegn object damage. In a motor car or 4by its worse because of fine tolerances.

to run a vehicle without an aircleaner is crazy....

If you need to blow it out with high pressure and blower but you will still need to replace it.

they tend to clog up and its like you trying to breathe thru a straw.

Hi Batts, I have the 92 4.2 diesel

It has the same twin filter system that you have.

And the answer is yes. and to even improve performance fit a oil soaked foam filter.

I have done 380,oooks and have no oil usage between services.

Have done some real good desert trips with heaps of dust, (year of the outback )

Also have a supercharger fitted, really complements the 4.2 diesel, heaps of tourge.

Cheers Col
