    Turned out great although I did get a bad hose with mine. Had to be stretched big time to fit the Toyota intake hose. TRD badge looks awesome thanks to CBoy808.

    After having the eBay snorkel would you guys buy it again? Or spend money on a more expensive snorkel. Too lazy to read the whole thread

    Would definitely buy again. Don't even consider the ARB. Everyone that's bought one of these loves it, worth every penny. It's virtually identical to the Safari snorkel for less than half the price.

    Had mine on for 4 months now and love it

    Be sure you check out the rubber hose that comes with it. Another guy and myself had problems getting it stretched enough to fit onto the snorkel. I had one additional issue in that I had to stretch BOTH ends to get it on. Took a lot of heat to get it there. I'm not happy with the hose. I have contacted the seller and he says he's sending a new one. We will see. It's on the truck now but stretched so tight I'm worried it might rip. It's air tight though. I really think the tube he sent with mine was a return. Had mud all over it. The rest of the parts were sealed up in plastic bags and looked great. Take a look at these pics and judge for yourself. I'm really hoping he makes good on it like he says he will. It does look good though. I'll say that much. I like it.

    Wow. Not good at all. Guess all good things really do come to an end, eventually. Too bad really... Seller had a good thing going.

    Thought I would pass this along to everyone who has bought the snorkel. These picture are what my stock air box tube looked like when I took out the inner fender liner. PRETTY NASTY! So when someone (Snorkel Haters) ask you why you need a snorkel, just show them these pictures. Seems mine has gotten pretty nasty from all these years of "Mall Crawling".

    whoa! quite a bit dirtier than mine - then again, yours is a 6 yr older truck. Agreed though, having it up higher should definitely help.

    I think they are still good. I was just unlucky enough to get one bad part. Nothing that can't be fixed. He has told me he's sending another. Even if it doesn't show up, it's still a better deal than ARB. I'll just have to come up with my own tube.

    When the haters start hating, I'll just show them this. I live in N.C. and have been through my share of hurricanes. A few swamps and such when I'm hunting as well so yes this was a need for me.
