New pic of weekend work

So i spent the entire weekend on the truck, had to place two deep cycle batterie where the spare, paint the rack (didnt have the time to paint the push bar anyway its going too rusted), installed the snorkel, i have to cross some small river here to go quading and dont want to be towed or hydrolock the engine in them. Also painted a good section of the frame.

I really like your truck. I especially like that roof rack set up.

Xterra is pretty nice too.

My guess is the snorkel is from a Land Rover Defender from ARB. I can't remember exactly

Ill get pic tomorrow under the hood, i just plugged the oem hole with a piece of plastic and silicone and drilled a 3 1/4 hole on the side of the airbox thats goes to the fender then a similar hole in the inner fender and put a 3 inch pcv tube in it. Then i placed the snorkel where it fitted best and drilled a 3 1/4 hole in the fender (its the most terrible thing i ever did on my truck) then my friend made me an aluminium piece to mount on the windshiel post. To connect the snorkel to the pcv pipe was the most demanding part. Took a wood shop vaccum hose not the cheap drier hose put the smalless one are 4 inch so i had to take a 3 inch rubber adaptor that is 4 inch on the outside and cut a 2 inch section of it then installed it in the hose and on the pipe with screw on collar. I had to unbolt the fender to install the hose, the space is to small and the curve are a pain but everything took its place well.

Thanks for the pics, especially the snorkel. That is my next mod and I am going to go with the Land Cruiser series 80 (80-89). I thought I heard somewhere that the snorkel on the older model fits closer to the fender and the windshield pillar.
