    EDIT: Looks like this might get expensive due to shipping from China to West Coast and them from West Coast to TX... Oh well, good thought.

    Howdy all... I've been looking into switching from my URD TCAI and going to a snorkel. The ARB ones are quite pricey so I was looking into doing the chinese version as seen here. On Amazon, the snorkel kit runs about $142.

    Not bad, but I wanted to see if I could find it cheaper elsewhere. That's when I found it for sale on alibaba, potentially for $40 each if we order 10. I do not know if this includes shipping, so no promises on final price right now.

    Now I'm now @ramonortiz55, but I'm willing to give this a go if I don't have to think too hard about shipping: such as the buyer paying shipping and me just slapping a label on the individual box once it arrives.

    Are there 9 other people that might want to get in on this with me? If there's some interest, I'll start the wheels moving with the alibaba vendor and see what I find...

    Interested but based on experience Shipping could easily kill this deal.

    It'd probably have to include some shipping on top. I'm going to try to figure out what that number is. Stay tuned!

    Looks like shipping is going to kill it. Up to $80 just to get it to the USA, then more to get it to Texas. For all the heartache, better to just get it from Amazon/ebay.
