    skip to 23:00, maybe you can print something similar to go into the fender? And then we can just run some silicon plumbing? Maybe? Lol.

    that's pretty much my idea too, going to explore it on a spare fender I have and see if anything is doable.

    Ah! Just saw your post. Yeah I’d be afraid of water and mud being thrown in there by my tires too. Idk, there has to be a better, sleeker solution than the fire hose options currently out there.

    Many of the stainless ones on other trucks seem to. There is no “ram air” effect with any of these snorkels that I am aware of with these. Toyota recommends turning the OEM one backwards in snow and rain from what I am aware.

    I don’t know the story on that stainless snorkel. I literally just came across it while looking at the available options. Sure looks clean compared to the ARB and Dobinson plastic wood-stove types.

    Been following this for a while. I am just going to get an airflow for 400 bucks. Smaller footprint than the arb.

    Definitely better looking than the ARB. Gooseneck is hideous and so fat. Wish someone with a second gen would do this
