    I'm thinking about getting a safari snorkel for my truck but I have Cut-outs and I'm afraid they will be slightly in the way. Does anyone have any measurements that can confirm if the fender flares will/will not interfere with the installation?

    If they do, you can just cut the fender flare away a little bit. If the snorkel sits flush with the cut area, it shouldn't be too bad.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    You will have to trim the flare for the snorkel to fit. I researched it when I was thinking about getting a snorkel.

    I don't have bushwackers but I know with xenon flares you need to trim a bit, maybe an inch or so, still looks fine and great. I could take some measurements of my snorkel install if you like...

    Damn. I really don't want to have to cut into the flares.

    I don't think you have to cut into stock flares if you want go that route.
