Keep it clean and you won't have any worries. The filter really has to be fully submersed in water to hydro lock the motor (the reason it's bad). If you go off-roading just clean it frequently. Also, I would find a way to route the intake more along the topside of the motor if at all possible, as it is susceptible to being submersed if you do go deep in the water. Just use some common sense and you'll be fine. Hell, if you want to just make one of those snorkel things lol! You'll be grabbing plenty of cold air and you won't have to worry about sucking up any water.

When did we start talking about headers?

Anyway, JBA is the only company (that I know of) that makes headers for the 3.0L, and you can get them from Jegs, Summit Racing, and various other online truck performance pages. I believe Summit has the best pricing on them right now at around $450-500, IIRC.
