Hey guys, not many of you know, but I recently became engaged. Shes a great girl, and likes to bring me beer and pizza when working on my truck...figured I had better put a ring on her finger.

Well, she thought that since I had bought her a ring, she would buy me some presents for the engagement, one of which is a Safari Snorkel.

Here are a couple pics from today.










I took a bunch of pics when I installed it, as well as what I used to plumb it, I will post a DIY thread later tonight.

Holy cow! She really IS a keeper. I guess you'll have to get her a truck as a wedding gift!

Haha they don't, the snorkel kit is for an 1980's Toyota Land Cruiser. I modded it to fit, and made up the plumbing with 3" ABS.

Yeah it is VERY clean, all the curves match and it follows the body lines well. I cannot take credit for the idea though, a number of others have used this snorkel also, that's where I got the idea.

Had to get a bit creative with the plumbing, when I post the pics you will see just how slick it is. And its very waterproof, I checked all the joints with a pressure washer lol.
