I`ve had a Vararam on my 08 Ram for about a year now and the install is different than on a 4th gen ram. You have to remove the front bumper and remove the tow hooks and their mount since it uses that hole for the intake. Rain and snow are no problem since it would have to travel atraight up for about 2 feet. I put window screen in front of the intake scoop to keep bigger stuff from getting in. The only problem I`ve had is the screen plugging up if I`m driving in wet snow, only has to have about 25% of it blocked for the engine light to come on. There is a noticeable increase in low end torque which isn`t a shock when you consider the difference in size of the intake tubes.
