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:

No b/c he will hook it below the air filter on the stock air box. what accumulates will drain out the box.
A snorkel with drain holes in the air box is completely useless if you think about it. :brickwall

There's no way enough rain will get in there to hurt anything, whether its running down the road or parked. I've been running one for years and never had a problem. And I agree with the guy above who said it looks better than an ARB.

So have ya tested it out in a deep hole yet?
