    hey guys UPDATES TODAY

    i just got off the phone with Ernie with a couple new things to tell yall...

    the Snorkel is NOT going to a safari brand name but it still is a snorkel and looks just like it. i mean... shoot yall could slap a Safari Snorkel sticker on there if you really wanted to but hey if you really want to buy a Safari then pay the extra cash for the name.

    he said he is getting them China and he working on getting a website put together so people can view them.

    so since they are from china we have to match up the China version Tacoma to the American version tacoma. i asked him if it would work ok like that and he said yes.

    i suppose i could order one from him and give it a test run to see if it installs well.

    i feel like if it worked for his jeep, why wouldnt it work for a tacoma...


    feedback is appreciated guys. thanks!

    93mm hole in the fender, better hope it works, Tacomorotto best tell your friend not to get caught up in knock offs, I would imagine that ARB would hunt him down.

    Good info. Some people might rather the $100 in their pocket, but some might not. Not a dick move at all.

    You get what you pay for plain and simple. Maybe if the knock offs were like 50 bucks then it would be worth it but 200 bucks is not much less then you can get the real thing for.
