If I were going to buy a snorkel it would probably be the River Raider. I know a guy with one and he did something similar to what mrsig did in the tight corners. The snorkel saved his winshield/frame.


Obviously not what a snorkel is designed for, but it works.

Of course I'm not serious at all because I have a four door, but that's all I could hear the two door guys saying. Back to your regularly scheduled program.

The Gobi looks like it mounts to the windshield the same way my Kargomaster mounts. You would have to rig something to release to still be able to raise the rack.
any special work to get the snorkel around the kargo master?

I think the 4 door owners are trying to take over. Our arguement evolved from:

"Hey, 4 doors are Jeeps too"
to "Four doors are still very capable"
to "Hey in some situations we can do everything a 2 door can do"
to "With the longer wheelbase, there are actually some things we can do that 2 door owners can't do as well!"
to this newest evolution, "...better in most off roading situations."

The next step is going to be, "Psssh, you call that a JEEP! That little thing doesn't have enough doors to be a Jeep!"

"Tightening the nut behind the wheel is the most cost effective way to improve the performance of any vehicle."

screw it I am going to do the cowl snorkel . I Work and a custom metal fab shop and can do almost anything. Bumpers rock rails and much much more. I will be keeping you all posted. I will be making my own bumpers soon. I will sell my first one super cheep and I bet its better than an ARB one.


But yeah the cowl is the way for me. It looks bad *** and I do not see any problems with doing it. I will not go over windshield height. Custom aluminum tubing and to cowl......

I have the mirrors relocated to where the cookie cutter snorkels go, so that custom HMMV type is all that'll work. (I think I'll just drive slow through deep water!)
