Buddy of mine attended his first 4x4 event back east since completing his 40 built up. Sent me a pic of a home made snorkel. Yes thats a section of aluminum rain gutter.:hill:

Deano Baranski has been saving Pringles cans ever since our Dunes camping rip last month with an eye towards a homebrew snorkel. I hope his turns out better than the one pictured above!

I guess this is a snooty Cruiser vs mini truck thing. It's not uncommon to see PVC snorkels around on Yotatech and stuff. Roger Brown's is just white 2" schedule 40. It can be done quite low key and tastefully. I personally have my doubts about PVC and the off gassing at higher temperatures being much good, but I don't have specific evidence that it's bad for the health of the engine sensors or the driver. Not to mention Safari doesn't make snorkels for most 22R-E trucks, so it's always gonna be a DIY thing anyway. :-/

Well, like I say, PVC out gases (sorta like your dad?) at high temps, so maybe aluminum really is an upgrade in ghetto snorkels...

I can definitely see PVC or anything water tight on a buggy. But call me snooty, when I put one one my 80 it will be a safari or OEM as its my DD.

The concept is great; but execution is everything.
