very nice, i really like the hood snorkel...

Yeah, it works really well. I'm thinking about going to a full snorkel though.

:thumbsup: They are awesome, i just need to mount some lights on the front/fix my headlights so i can actually SEE at night.

The sticker is still on the old hatch glass thats sitting in my garage, i need to swap it over. :D

What's the tube for your hood scoop/snorkel made out of? It seems like it would melt with how it folds in there. Does it just sit far enough away not to get bothered?

Feels and looks like plastic, I'd PM glfredick if you want to know more.

Alright, WELL with badlands coming up i have a lot to do. Someone might have caught what i was planning to do to the X (Aric knows) before badlands and so far.... its going to happen either this weekend or next (check the cell phone pic below for a clue). Just waiting on 2 things.

In terms of fixing things, i need to replace my leaf springs they are sagging horribly. I dont want to lose my flex though, since i have an set of leafs (parts truck YAY) i'm just going to run those the same way as the ones i have now (overload springs removed and the BDS AAL)
Would like to try to clean up the interior abit as i will be sleeping it.
Have to get my CB actually working.
Change Oil (drain plug is stripped)

Thats all i can think of for now.

Kinda of sneak pic of what i've been doing the past 2 weeks. MANY more pictures will be up after i return from badlands. Still need to finish the fender though it's becoming a hassle.
