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:

Looks great! Nice job.

Can you relocate the air box to the drivers side and run the pipe straight into it?

I'd do smooth wall tubing throughout. That dryer vent stuff probably isn't going to flow too well because of the corrugation. You'll pick up a few HP due to the cool air effect, you might as well make it flow good too.

Obviously I'm limited to something that uses a 3"ID because my snorkel pipe is 3"OD.
Not necessarily. I did a CAI on a car that used PVC pipe. I was able to joint two pieces with a 3" OD by using a rubber join that had a 3" ID.

Came out pretty nice actually. I was able to scuff it good with 600 grit, prime and paint with Krylon and the finish looked good for years.
