Great job on your Hummer air intake snorkel. It looks like it came from the factory like that.

That is one great mod!! Clean and effective. Finally, a higher water intake that doesn't look rediculous.

That would be the only PITA with extending the length of the prefilter tube. I do like the idea of carrying an extension on the trail.

I purposely called this a cold air intake and not a snorkel basically for that reason. I also mentioned for the trail riding, you could run an extension on the collar that comes out of the cowl. I still have not relocated the breather on my 3spd, so before I consider an extension, I have more important things to worry about.

Thanks again for the input everyone.

Just looking at it from the pictures, I don't think so. However, I have never had the desire to do that, so its a non-issue for me. Although I could just remove the cap and collar to fold down the windshield if I was going to install a roll cage or something of that nature that requires me to fold down the windshield.

What a jerk, you can get them NEW from a Hummer dealership for less.

As far as mpg goes, I couldn't tell you. Since this isn't a daily driver, it goes from the garage to the trail and back. I haven't had a full tank of just street driving since I did the intake. Sorry.
