Should work fine. I dont think you will need an air box. The foam should keep stuff out fine.

That's similar to mine, and yes it id subject to getting wet, and bogging,

A simple shield would help that. Use a bigger can and cut the top off, trim the sides to the height of the filter.
drill some drain holes in the bottom. adapt the bottom to whatever you are using for a filter base.

For my use, since I don't get a whole lot of mud access. I don't really worry about it.
