    Yes and no - I had no template so I had to make my own.

    Someone linked on in my build thread somewhere of one which has a template made.

    @Tennessee98 Give Cruiser Outfitters in Sandy, UT a call. They have that hilux snorkel with a template they developed themselves for the 2nd gens.

    Getting all prepped for the mojave trip tomorrow! Leaving at 6 a.m. to meetup with everyone in Nevada then start. Should be a wicked fun time! Fingers crossed for the water crossing that it doesn't swallow one of our cars.

    Amazing trip to Mojave! Ran the entire trail from Nevada without any issues until the very end where I lost 4wd /: Soda Lake Bed and Afton crossing were a breeze! Afton was a little deep though!

    Finicky actuator probably, just going to remove and solder it.

    Flippac is a game changer to say at the least.

    I’ve spent $46 and 6 hours getting salt off my truck.

    Bijan Tip: Don’t go across a muddy salt lake bed.

    It’s so bad - I probably shed ~30lbs of mud from powerwashing. The owner of the car wash told me not to ever come back like that again LOL! Just want to protect my frame. The sliders already started rusting from the salt.
