    My biggest concern when installing mine was how it might effect overall performance with the supercharger, there was some debate as to whether or not the snorkel would restrict the airflow needed especially at wide open throttle. But tbh I haven't noticed a difference either way, it pulls just the same with the snorkel as it did without one. And as a plus, I've noticed that my intake temps stay down more than just a few degrees overall which is good (cooler air from directly outside instead of the wheel well near the engine).

    Snorkels are dumb and look stupid. Another fad of the overland community. Change my mind.

    I was glad I had a snorkel when it started raining today, I was worried about getting water in my intake

    Because water being forced down a tube into your filter and intake is better than having it in an engine bay in a box sealed from the environment

    What if it’s raining when your going through a pond that’s above your hood? It’s like a double standard, needs to be under the hood out of the rain but can’t be. That’s why I just stay out of ponds in my truck, that’s what I use the boat for.

    Started building a front receiver today. Hope to have it finished in the morning and off to powdercoat. The tab on the end is for my winch plug.

    It was seriously funny after I hiked 7 miles up Vernal and Nevada Falls in the Yosemite Valley to a point where I had one bar of LTE, and I see I have a barrage of notifications that my truck was spotted in my hometown.

    I wasn’t offended at all! I think it was pretty damn funny seeing my truck on a popular Instagram page. It definitely looked ridiculous, and I thought all the attention I got from it was just too amusing.

    Here it is with the chains, which was a temporary solution! I have security clamps and fasteners in the mail but I couldn’t let it sit another night without securing it. It was the thickest heaviest chain Home Depot sold, rated for logging and D.O.T. certification.

    Here is Nevada Falls.

    I don’t think it funny, sarcastic maybe, not funny.


    My snorkel is just for looks, I’m solo most the time, rarely if ever cross a stream let alone a river. It’ll probably fill with pine needles and ice and then get torn off this winter. Hell, I almost didn’t even use the little rubber connecting piece.
