Ok guys, so here is what you have been waiting for.. (me as well)
I got the chance over the weekend to get some jeep related stuff taken care of. I managed to get the snorkel on.
It took us the better part of 3 1/2 hours split up between friday night and saturday morning. I have to say, i was skeptical about the fit of the kit, just because most aftermarket parts tend to always run into a bump in the middle of the install. This kit was not like that. I literally followed the instructions step by step, did what it said, and it went in with absolutely NO problems or headaches. I mean it is a phenomenal fit and it went in smoother then any other install in recent memory.
All the parts were included in the kit to do the job, minus a (4 3/4" holesaw, silicon adhesive to seal the kit, and a pop rivet gun) just to let you know, i found automotive RV silicone in black for about 5 bux, got a 5" holesaw for 6 dollars at harbor freight (it worked perfect) and i also got a crap pop rivet gun for 6 dollars. Otherwise you just need some basic stuff, wrenches, screwdrivers, and some way to cut (jigsaw, drill, airsaws, cut off wheels, dremels, etc)
I am going to write up a full detailed article with pics before, during and after install. I will be getting around to actually "fording" something asap.
here is some previews
the pics aren't too great, it was a bit too dark in the shop during the photo session)
if you have any questions, anything you'd like answered in the article, or comments, let me know. I will be writing up the article in the next few days, getting some better "day" pics and if you'd like pics of any certain part of the kit, let me know.
