if you dont want anyone to see it from the outside then the way that the people have it in the links I posted before are your best bet.

im not to sure you could fit anything under the hood, maby someone here will know.

what is this pipe going behind your bumper that you are talking about? I thought all rangers got the air from behind the head light.

i have a little tube that runs from the airbox to a couple inches below the headlight and it could be something the last owner did

It's likely a homebrew cold air intake. Take it off as it'll suck stuff in faster than anything.

If it's just the tapered black plastic tube that is normally there, then it's stock and removing it still helps.
