You've got to be kidding me right!:eek: That's all you get for $400? I can get a winch and winch mounting plate for that price. :thumbdwn:

Could just make my own, although yours does look better!:D

Yea the price is pretty high but it looks so much better than pvc and the non-diesel cherokee snorkel is a little cheaper but it mounts on the drivers side.

Well, it's not my fault that the US Dollar went downhill and is worth a shit right now. That's where the price comes from, conversion rate Euro <-> Dollar and since I'm in Europe we have to calculate in Euros.

Silly question...... what about running through the firewall up the a-pillar (inside) and to the roof? And maybe blending in with safari rack?

you've got more than just the firewall to go through, but with enough time and effort anything is possible.

+1, you have to go through the firewall, probably move the brake booster(I'm not EXACTLY sure where its at on this truck, as I havent messed with the motor to much), also go through the dash, air bag, probably some wiring and electronics.

iirc the cone type filter still goes through the inner fender so if you take the outer fender off you should be able to access/modify it to work with a snorkel. Mine is 2 1/2" pvc to an arb safari top. looks legit and is more streamlined than the premade ones even haha. heres smoe pics from my install.

what did you use to cut your fender? ive been looking for awwhile at snorkels and havent decided if i want to run it on the out side out the fender (so cut a circular hole, then just run it) or if i wanna do it like you did. im more leaning to what you did because it looks more professional, did you you just use metal sheers or a grinder?
