Nope no whistling at all. Water gets in but it's not an issue. Our engine bay isn't sealed anyway. Haven't had any problems with water and here in coastal Georgia we get some pretty heavy rains. Pretty much with modern engines as long as you're not hosing down the alternator while the engine is running it will be fine.

Depends on your plans for your rig in the long run. If you plan to run 35's ever then absolutely. If you want more body clearance or want sliders then yes since sliders have to be modified if they're not for a BL.

As far as I'm concerned, if you widen your stance to compensate there is no downside to a BL. It's not too hard to install (did mine in 2 days by myself taking my time) but you get the lift and clearance for the body and it's cheap.

However it does nothing for articulation or actual clearance for your lowest part (rear diff) but all together I would recommend a BL. Getting ready to do one on my brothers x here soon
