i was looking around to see if i could buy a snorkel for my 94 yj. all the set ups range from 400-600 dollars. i would like to figure out a nice clean,cheap,well built system. pictures would be cool to see. thanks
I dont have or need one, and have absolutely no experience in the design, construction, usage, installation, fabrication, assembly, or any other aspect of them.
That said, I belive I would look possibly to hottub tubing and fixtures for the underhood portion, at least. Designed to be flexible and watertight. Readily available, and somewhat inexpensive. Not sure how big it comes, though. Maybe just 2".
Just a thought.
“Coming of age in a fascist police state will not be a barrel of fun for anybody, much less for people like me, who are not inclined to suffer Nazis gladly and feel only contempt for the cowardly flag-suckers who would gladly give up their outdated freedom to live for the mess of pottage they have been conned into believing will be freedom from fear.”
i was looking at taking 3 in washer and dryer hoseing for under the hood. but i need to make something to put my air filter in,and be able to take it out and clean it. then ill be able to run pvc off that to the top of my roof.
Do snorkels ever get used as intended? Wouldn't electrical shorts stop you in your tracks? Wouldn't your seats get trashed? Wouldn't your panties get soaked?
Inquiring minds want to know.
I plan on using one as intended
In answer to your questions, electrical shorts should be easy enough to stop. I moved a lot of my dash wiring up and out of the way and I'm in the process of moving the under hood wiring up and in waterproof (NEMA) boxes. Hoping that between the insulation and the water proofing, they should work well.
Seats get trashed? Not a concern. I'm on my 2nd set of seats anyway from leaving the top and doors off in the rainy season. When they go bad again, I'll either pull another junkyard pair or upgrade to the Corbeau seats.
I'm worried less about panty soaking than I am about the inevitable skid marks from fighting a rushing current.
