No grille. The pleated filter is stiff enough to hold its own.

Just finished this mod...thanks again for the write up!!

One dumb question though. The arrow on the filter (and filter door) is supposed to point down, toward the fan right??

I'm not sure how the system works but it seems like it should be pointing up. Unless the fan pulls air in from above?

The airflow is down, so the air filter should be placed with the arrows pointing down. The air flow arrows on the filter cover are correct.

Yeah that is what your write up said and that's what I did....I just think its weird that the airflow is toward the fan that supplies the air. Usually airflow flows away from the fan

I was very happy to discover that it was this way. A benefit of this design is the dirt sits on top of the filter so gravity is always assisting in keeping the dirt on the filter during removal. Also when you filter the air on the intake side of the fan, the fan benefits from this cleaner air and a clean fan will perform at it's peak potential longer then a dirty one.

Awesome and quick mod! Thanks so much for the insight!!! Took me about 15 minutes with a dremel and socket wrench. The truck is so much cleaner now and the air just smells fresher. Can't believe a $43K vehicle didn't come with this...
