Snorkel fitting help

Just received my snorkel from eBay but its arrived with no fitting instructions!

It's basically a copy of the safari snorkel so instructions for the safari would be of great help. It's for a 4.0 btw.

Cheers

Post some pics. I've always wanted a snorkel, but didn't want to pay almost $500.

I just installed one of these . Huge pain in the ***. Crspoy template doesnt really help and the inner duct doesnt seal for a damn to the actual snorkel . Cheap chinese crap.

I dont have any install tips for u unfortunately: took me about 10 hours to install

I didn't find it that bad... but I did use a ton of rtv to seal the inner duct to the snorkel... it's sealed but I wish it fit better at that spot.

i'll clarify; thats the main issue i had. it didn't fit there worth a pewp for me. made me angry.

i classify that as cheap and crappy.
i used so much RTV its disgusting. i also hacked up my fender pretty good to get it all to fit.
its done and looks good though. i'll throw some pics up later.

I think the biggest problem I had was that they didn't include the mounting posts for mounting through the outer fender and cutting the inner fender. I couldn't fit my drill in there and had to use a dremel instead.

We simply took the outer fender off. Then cut the inner hole.
