OK, I've been trying to use the downtime for the Jeep projects(getting a ton of rain down here). Plus we don't have the nice terrain most of you all do just mud and swamps. So I just got in from making my snorkel. I couldn't justify the almost $400 bucks for the safari snorkle so I welded up 3" exhaust pipe and put on the ARB top.
One 3" U bend $24
One straight pipe $20
ARB snorkle top $ 77
Total $121
All I have left to do is connect it to my stock airbox with some dryer vent tube from Home Depot and some additional waterproofing under the hood.

Tried to keep it low profile for tree branches and wanted it to match the body line and windshield angle. Also I went through the hood because my hood is already dented and didn't want to ruin a good fender.

How's it look?:cheers2:

I know this thread is a bit older, but my only question is:

Why not just put a cone filter on the top of the snorkel where there are questions as to what top to use? I have a homemade snorkel going into the stock airbox which I have used for several years. Great addition to the jeep, and has been heavily tested under water. It has a cone filter on top covered by a K&N filter wrap (keeps out water and minimizes dirt to the filter itself). This has been a great setup, and I dont see anyone here even consider this.

At the current time, I am searching to replace the stock airbox. I do like the PVC 'shelter' idea, but am looking to remove the box and keep the air filtered from the top. So all I need is something to connect the other tubes to. Got some ideas, and thank you all for that!!!
