    Hey Guys, Mike Tomczyk here from Exit Offroad.

    A lot of you know that we have been working on snorkel R&D for 5th Gen 4Runners, as well as 2nd and 3rd Gen Tacomas for the past 2 years. We finally have them arriving by the end of this month (November 2018), so now it's time to make the announcement to everyone.

    Update: Link to purchase the snorkel kit is here: https://exitoffroad.com/product/dobinsons-4x4-snorkel-kit-for-toyota-4runner-5th-gen-2010-2020/

    [MENTION=52963]Team4runner[/MENTION] has been running our first off-tool sample since Spring this year with out any issues. Check out his most recent photo here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BqIJiZqleYf/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

    We did our best to keep the snorkel as close to the body as possible without reducing the airflow, and also keeping our classic snorkel head on the top to keep wind noise down. We are also super happy to offer these at really great pricing to start with.

    Common FAQ's:
    1. Yes, you have to drill several holes and one large hole for the snorkel to mount, but the good news is, if you ever decide to remove it, you can buy a new fender and patch the holes on the A-pillar for the supporting bracket.
    2. Yes, it's made in China.
    3. Yes, it's upwards of half the price of the current market offerings.
    4. Yes, Dobinsons does make snorkels and have been for about 12 years now, but to date it's been mostly for Land Cruisers and international vehicles not sold in the USA.
    5. No, a snorkel does not increase your horsepower. It can keep your air filter cleaner though, since dust has weight and stays closer to the ground, so using a raised air intake generally brings in less dust/dirt.
    6. Yes, it does require the original non-TRD airbox and OE sized filter (you can use a performance filter if you want).
    7. No, it does not come with it's own air filter. It just raises the point at which the air intake comes into the air box, and the further away from the ground/road, the cleaner and cooler it gets.

    Agreed on cost and it looks great compared to the Safari version. It doesn't stick out that much like the Safari version :thumbsup:

    I know there aren't many 4Runner guys here on TW, but any of you running the snorkel, wanna share some pics on here of your rigs with them?
