Personally, I never would have even considered a snorkle because they are so obnoxious looking and I don't really need one. But, this changed my mind.

I think it could be done far less expensive, but no matter what, this is the best looking job I've seen.

Here's another much less expensive snorkle.

That is the best looking snorkel I have seen. Looks very professional when done. Osburn, did you do this to your Jeep? If so, did you find a way to do it cheaper?

I am obviously referring to the first link, the Hummer snorkel. Thanks.

Nope, I haven't done this. But it would seem you could use less expensive components. Matter of fact, use the components from the second link and just locate it like the first link.

Makes sense. There really is no need for a new air filter,either. I would haveta get the Hummer cap though, thats the coolest part. Not so much cause its from a Hummer, but its so clean looking, like it belongs.
