    seriously before this convo took place i was sitting here thinking about how much it cost

    it was $114 for the slides alone

    $30 for the cool looking latches

    than like $40 for the plywood

    1 board that was 40 inches and 3 that were 46 inches

    i dont remember the price that wood was

    than 2 2nd gen tacoma tie downs i got for free

    misc bolts washers and nuts to make ^ work probably about $10 if i didnt have my hardware bag at home

    $40 for the carpet ik (i probably got ripped off)

    than a staple gun for the brads and staples that construct it (along with screws)

    I don't understand the snorkel concept, if you're in water near the bottom of the snorkel, won't you drown inside the cab?

    And what about the water entering the axle breather tubes? Trans has to breathe too, right?

    Is there a secret snorkel tube inside the cab for you to breathe until you get out from under the water?

    Glad to hear that, we don't want only your truck to survive. We want you to live to tell us about it here on TW.

    Well seeing snorkels are mainly for sand it makes sense. But for the most part 1st gen guys do it because it looks cool (to them), it's cheap (under $200) and it's good insurance for the "oh shit" water moment

    It's cheap insurance. I have my intake relocated up at the same height as the ventilation above the hood. My last trip has the trail drive through the edge of a pond in which there was a steep drop off half way through. This sent water over the bottom of my windshield, and I heard the motor gurgle a bit. Sure enough after we got through it, I check my intake and there was water inside the intake but didn't make it past the filter. Since I kept moving it seems the doors took on some water, and some water came through the hole for the steering rag joint but otherwise the cab stayed dry. I figured the relocated intake would be enough for my uses, but the last trip proved that's not the case. But again idk who else are coming across shit like that on the regular, I know I am not, but I want to be prepared if I ever do again.
