    This is open to 2nd gens with a Snorkel, but since I have a first gen and wasn't sure where else to put this topic I posted it in the first gen section. I personally don't have a snorkel, but have wanted one since I saw Dante's Peak when I was 6.... :D

    If you can put the make/model of your snorkel, where you got it, and maybe an example of when you were really glad you invested the money in one, that'd be cool too.

    dude, you're good, I can still see some grill.

    My old 4Runner (not 1st or 2nd gen, does this count??) had a stealth snorkel.

    I ran the PVC up to the highest point inside the fender well that I could (in between the fender well, and the fender so it wasn't exposed to the wheel, either). So water would have to come up to the windshield before water got in the engine. I never had the balls to go anywhere near that deep anyway... I got some pretty worried looks in some river crossings (people didn't think I had a snorkel). Anyway, I basically did the deck plate mod to the other side of the airbox, so that it could breathe better, but I'd seal it up when wheelin'.

    Wish I had pics of it, but it's an old truck, many moons ago, pre digital world.

    I've thought about it, but I dunno if I could really justify spending a ridiculous amount for some molded plastic and then having to cut a hole into my fender. I'll just avoid big water crossings, never really needed to get across anything deeper than 3-4 feet anyways.

    Safari Snorkel on my Taco. Helps a ton with dust in Utah's west desert. Snorkels... they're not just for water anymore. ;)

    although I am glad I have it for water too.

    Might give a couple other ideas. This is a home built one I had on my old '85. Inlet is a Safari Snorkel top but other than that it's all home depot.

    if your gonna get a snorkel, use it and abuse it. Granted these guys ended up drowning both trucks. The fording depth is a little less than what they went through. LOL, but atleast it was up high enough to justify it being over the cab.....

    At this point I was coming up out of the water. You can see the depth by the water line on the side of the passenger door. I could stick my hand out the door and run it through the water. No water in the cab.

    Dust lingers on the ground, higher up less dust.
