    Did you ever install it? I would be interested in doing this myself since the first gen safari is a little cheaper and in a better location for me mainly because of my solenoid relocation spot.

    Yes, though Reed, if they will do it for a reasonable price and you trust them with your truck. I bet a couple local members to you would do it for free though. Show up to a meet and make some friends.

    Hi.
    I purchased the safari snorkel 2 yrs ago and have yet to do my plumbing from the fender to airbox.
    Reason being is I have the 2.7 and no plumbing is/was avail. I have all the 3.4 plumbing but as you might guess, its way different.
    Anyone know if there is any 2.7 plumbing avail or am I going to have to fabricate my own.
    What would you suggest?

    post a pic of your engine bay. I have a 2nd gen and made my own route for the plumbing. all I used was the stock components in the engine bay, hose clamps and the one piece of flex tubing they supplied.

    Yea. Mines a first gen.
    Biggest issue is the snorkel enters right at the door/fender area and the airbox sits completely in the front right hand corner of the engine bay.

    Flipped the plumbing 180º upside down, cut the water box off, and used the flex tubing to connect everything. I did cut a second hole in the fender though, so it signed up at the back of the firewall instead of in the stock location.

    Get a pic up later today of the engine bay and components that the snorkel ships with. I keep being told that they have intake parts in aluminum at the local PepBoys Auto Parts store. You could easily get the right plumbing with them just playing with parts.

    Very nice, thanks for the input. I'm stuck between, ARB snorkel, 48" light bar, or roof rack to get for myself for Christmas...tough decisions

    Well, I would get the roof rack, then the light and finally the snorkel. OR Roof Rack, snorkel, Light....

    The roof rack is normally a mounting point for the light ;)
