you could drill a small hole on in the front of the bed, and mount the filter inbetween the cab/bed...that would draw fresh air...

Just do what mitch said. I ran mine between the skins of the bed after the tire. No probs, and the filters don't get dirty as much

uh, wait..the compressor is in the bed? why are you running a remote filter under the bed? the inside of the bed is much cleaner.

I may be asking a dumb what if question buy what if u had a tonnue cover on it that is water proof so wouldn't that make it air tight and then your tailgate was molded shut and your bed was rebuilt out of sheet metal with no holes in it and your compressors were in it. What happens when the compressors start making vacume.

if the compressor is in the bed, under a cap, then theres no reason whatsoever to relocate the filter. anything outside of the bed will be worse for it. i dont care what kind of cover you have or what kind of body mods you do short of welding the entire thing closed, the bed will never be airtight and the compressor will never create a vacuum in there.
