Anybody know where to find the Wolf air duct inlets?

I need to track down a picture again, but does anybody know if the Wolf edition air inlets are available anywhere? They seem to be a much better design for snowy/rainy areas. I have seen them on real trucks too, but all I could find was photos of a model that has them.


Look at the top of the left fender where the air intake is on this picture, that's what I want to find. I think I've seen them for both fenders too.

Wolf vent covers.

I've been looking for them as well and the only source I have found is P.A. Blanchards in the UK. They have them listed for 46GBP. www.pablanchard.co.uk.

I've been looking for them because of snow plugging up my heater intake. The snow here can be wet and heavey, so when I need more air for the demister is when the snow plugs the air flow.

How much have you seen them for, I thought 46 GBP was a little steep.

I was hoping to put it on my NAS '94 Defender in the winter for just regular driving. I got quite tired of the intakes getting clogged with snow all winter. Mainly I am concerned with the heater intake, as I am probably going to fit an exhaust fan into the other vent to try and cool the engine compartment.

My truck is a 2.5NA but I just need it for the heater intake on the right hand side. I'm going to do a snorkel for the engine intake on the Left side. I don't think I need a kit because the heater intake goes right to the vent, so I just need a cover. I'm pretty sure that a NAS Defender would have the same style heater intake but I'm not sure what side.

That price was for PA Blanchard but I'm not sure if it was for kit or not.

I was looking at the safari snorkel, I like the look of it. The Wolf ones are pretty big, too big IMO and pricey so I don't think I'll bother.

ahhh i see didnt realise it was for the heater ... not sure how the wolf intake will affect yoyur heater performance tho as the air intake sucks and the heater intake relys on forced air as the Lr heater blower is kinda crap pulling air thru the intake might well lessen performance of it to upgrade my heater i used a scoop on the heater intake ... ill nip out and take a pic in a sec didnt make a major difference but enough to make it worth spending the 20£ or whatever it was anyway ill go grab a shot of it for ya

I've had decent results with the unit Rover's North sells. With the stock vent, I would get snow stuck in the blower which resulted in a blown fuse when I went to defrost my wind shield.

Haven't had the problem since. I also used it as a mounting point(cover) for an external GPS antenna.

Right now I have the rovers north vent/scoop already on there. Not bad, but with a real heavy snow I need to clean it off by hand first and I have had it clog up again while driving. Worse is when rain or melted snow gets down in there and freezes inside the intake box. Then I just have to wait for the engine heat to melt it before anything moves.
