First, yes I know a snorkel isn't the only thing needed to keep a Jeep water tight but I'm not buying it so I can drive through 3 feet of water I'm buying it in case I drive through three feet of water. It's my insurance policy I rather have to replace my fluids and have screwy electronics than buy a new engine. I digress...
So I'm getting a snorkel in one form or another and all along I thought I would just buy one but $350 for a few plastic pieces is pretty ridiculous. I've seen some nice "hummer style" cowl builds on here but I don't think I have the balls to take a hole saw to my firewall with no written instructions so I know I'm doing it right.
Question is; should I just drop the money and buy one, or can anyone direct me to the best DIY writeup that I don't need any hard to find materials for or is there an alternative method I haven't thought about?
I personally feel that if it were up to me I would just save up my pennies and buy one. They look a lot nicer then a home build, and if it's basically just on there for looks then you want it to look good.
