Hidden Snorkle

I started my hidden snorkle this afternoon. Got the idea from l2en from back in the day. Got everything mocked up, tomorrow I will glue, silicon and paint and make it look nice.

This isn't a full time snorkle so your truck doesn't feel bogged down. So I can run regular or close it and run through the snorkle.

Sorry for the crappy cell pics

Picked up a 3" gate valve

and may be bring the intake threw the fire wall in to the cab some were may be put a valve on that end also

I didn't even get to see any of the "monsoon" because that is when I went to europe. Dry when I left and dry when I came back haha

and Koyn lives in the same desert and hydrolocked his motor and I got a few friends that have hydrolocked theirs too. You never know

Not what I expected at all. Cool idea, but it doesn't seem like it would give you much more advantage than the stock box. I know it's a little higher, but not much.
