I'dlike to off road my Baja. As seen in the photos, my filter is kinda in a bad place for this. Any ideas guys?

Somewhere up and out of the way, inside the cage. I've seen guys mount them up under the rear window, seems like a good spot to me.

It's not a bad idea to build a shield around it as well. I wrap my filter with thin sheet metal and then a layer of rubber backed carpet (like a bath mat). It keeps the flying rocks away, since mine is a pump mount.

Also, fab up a skid plate. That'll protect the rest of your engine.

Kyle

Thank you Kyle, I wasn't sure if the longer hose would present a problem or not. Skid plate is a good idea too. Could save me mega bucks.

While you are talking about filters, it would not be a bad idea to relocate your fuel filter also.
