Safari vs. Airflow Snorkel Systems

I am considering replacing the K&N 57 Series Generation II FIPK on my gas KJ with a snorkel. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Safari (http://www.safarisnorkel.com/snorkel...f/ss1130hf.htm) and Airflow (http://www.airflowsnorkels.com/details.php?id=47) are the only snorkel manufacturers for the KJ. I have seen posts on threads about an Australian company called Gibson RM who also produced a snorkel for the KJ; is Gibson RM now Airflow? What are the differences between the Safari and Airflow snorkel systems? Most distributors are charging in the $500 range for the Safari and in the $400 range for the Airflow. What makes the Safari worth $100 more than the Safari? Thanks in advance for your help!

Overall they look the same pretty much but looking closer the thickness of the material used on the Safaris is thicker and just better quality IMO

IMO Safaris all the way. They're expensive but much better in quality and in reliability. I know a few people with airflow and they changed over to Safari.

Is the only difference between the two cosmetic? There's no performance difference (e.g. filtration, amount of airflow, etc.)?

Do you know why they changed over from the Airflow to the Safari? What exactly did they not like about the Airflow?
