    I guess you could do that. How are you ensuring you aren't going to have the bolts loosen after driving on washboard/bouncing around? I don't see a split washer so my guess is thread locker.

    I plan on using a dot of loctite, I just got the parts today and used bolts I had laying around

    Also rivnuts do have some elasticity so that helps

    TRD Off Road sticker. Not the whole package, just the sticker.
    This thread and this snorkel prove the 1st gen market is deffinatly not "dead" like you hear from a most fabricators. Maybe not as much demand as 2nd gens, but there are still a lot of us out here buying mods. This seller has probably made a killing off these snorkels.

    I wouldn't be surprised. You are modifying the air intake and I know that some of those hot-air intakes they call "performance" upgrades get some people to fail.

    @Fernando - you're in CA and have an ARB snorkel - do you have any issues with SMOG?

    Since the factory airbox is still intact and not hacked up or replaced, I imagine it wouldn't be an issue.

    Quite soon farting will be illegal in California (unless you have CARB certified underwear).:alien:

    Shouldn't be a problem, I had the same concern but there are many here with snorkels on in CA and haven't had a problem. CA only cares about what comes after the MAF sensor, which the snorkel doesn't effect.

    Worst case situation, you get a dick tech/station, remove the snorkel. Put some painters tape or cardboard over the hole in the fender. Nothing from stock has changed, the airbox is not modified. All good.

    Don't think this is an issue.

    Yeah CA sucks but they don't suck that bad lol. Massachusetts actually has stricter laws in place as far as cosmetically modifying a vehicle which is what a snorkel falls under because you aren't really changing anything to do with the emissions. CA is only really strict when it comes to emissions stuff, we get away with big lifts, bumpers, lights, fenders, tires, etc that some states crack down harder on.

    But ya if you want to do anything to your powertrain or exhaust then it better be CARB certified or you're boned

    I wonder if ARB has the mounting hardware for their snorkel available to order? After watching this vid, I kind of like how the ARB version has those A-pillar 'liners' for the mount holes and how it puts a bit of space between the bracket and the a-pillar. Yeah I know, dont over think it... :crazy:

    Drove through torrential rain this AM headed out to the desert, was worried the snorkel was taking in too much water but when I pulled into the gas station to check the filter it was dry as a bone. Some water/moisture at the bottom of the air box in front of the filter but it wasn't wet to the touch and nothing wet behind it. Considering the rain I was pushing through on the freeway I was impressed.

    Thought I'd share in case anyone was wondering how they'd hold up in a downpour, I know it was one of my concerns back when I was considering purchasing one.
