Granted, not the prettiest snorkel in the world - but its functional. Its a prototype; future versions will be mandrel
bent so no crushing. This one will be powdercoated. Yes that's an actual Safari 'scoop' on top.
OH I SHOULD ADD that this RAI took the whole weight of the X (well at least side loading) sliding into a
boulder and only took superficial damage. I think a plastic or fiberglass one wouldn't have fared as well.

EDIT 4-3-2011: PARTS LIST
90 degree Cobra Head:
http://intakehoses.com/Merchant2/mer...<br /> e=CHEW
3" ID Flexible Hose: (you can get this anywhere like Hoseman, etc.)
If you configure your snorkel like I did you wont need a lot - less than a foot.
3" Hoseclamps (4)
3" ID Exhaust flange: This you can get when at a muffler shop or auto parts store.
ARB Safari Snorkel Replacement Parts, 3 Inch Air Ram
P/N ARB-000135000 - Make sure its a 3" ID. You can google it but I got
mine here for $69.50
A length of 3" OD Aluminized tubing: I dont remember the exact length. Available at muffler shop.
1' angle iron for bracket. Length will vary to your config.
Nutserts and nutsert tool for "A" pillar mounting
And you'll need to make this up for the cobra head to faster to at the fender:
^^^That is how you make this part: (view from inside fender)
3" ID Flex to airbox:
Take the airbox cover off and shave off all doodads from the outside of the 3" OD inlet. This will allow the flex
to hose clamp on.
The main body of the snorkel is the 3" OD aluminized tubing. Your muffler shop will have this and bend it and
cut it for you. You can also have them weld on the 1" angle steel for the "A" pillar bracket. OR if you really want
to get fancy find a place that will mandral bend the tubing (this is what I want to do in the future when I redo
mine). Then paint or powdercoat as you want. If you did it right it will look like this:
When it was black:
That should be about it - please let me know if you have any questions.
