2 inch pipe for snorkle?...ok?

I just bought a 1998 Grand Cherokee about a month ago, my daily driver but Ive been spending alot of time in the woods, some spots get pretty scary considering my stock air cleaner sucks in the grill, I had my front bumper under water last night again and I wanted to spice her up with a snorkle so i dont have to worry anymore...I went to Home Depot and bought the 2 inch PVC piping and some angled adapters, I cut a clean round hole in my airbox under the filter and sent it into my fender, I ran it inside my fender and have it popping out by my side view mirrior, it dont look bad and it will look alot better tomorrow after I spray it with the black bedliner spray...is the 2 inch PVC pipe big enough?...and Im assuming I should leave the 2 tiny holes in the bottom of my air box for water to drain out if any rain water was to find its way into my snorkle?...and Im assuming I should just put an angled piece at the tip of the snorkle to prevent rain water from pouring in?...anything with this setup sound bad?...or am I good to go...any tips will help, thanks

I would want 3 or 4" pipe personally.

I wouldn't cut a drain hole...if you were to sit under water that is just a spot to suck up water through still - unless you can put a one way valve in there.

You'll probably also want something bigger then 2" - just a shot in the dark though. Look at the OEM tube size and at least match it.
