    At least from the replies here we have brought awareness to the shady practices of uptop. A good honest company would have halted sales until they fixed it. If we stopped one person from buying this piece of junk then I am happy.

    you mean the company that’s running a “15% off racks” sale this weekend only after bumping all their rack prices up another $100?

    ….crazy….

    Do you think that the prices will come down $100 after the 15% off sale?

    no, I think they’re raising prices to protect margins during business growth and not because of rising costs, yet like many, will most likely use “rising costs” as justification for raising their prices. Every time I think about replacing my bed rack with the full height Truss rack, it costs more than the last time I checked.

    I can't fully tell if I still like the look or not. I think the snorkel tube and head size looks fine, but that fender box just seems like its huge now; maybe its just the pics. Does the fender box stick out further than the fender flares/mirror/sliders? It looks massive in the last couple pics.

    More often than not these companies price themselves into closure.

    Uptop has always been outrageously expensive.

    They have been one of the more/most expensive options for what they sell, but a year ago I think their prices were justified by the quality. It seems now that their prices keep going up, but the value isn’t there.

    Do you have dyno day scheduled? It looks better in regards to size but numbers will tell the tale.

    Not yet. I've been busy with work since we're at the end of the Fed FY. I'll try and get this done next week though. I did fail to provide the details behind this test snorkel....

    This is a test snorkel to utilize the existing clamps and tubing while increasing the box and "throat" of the snorkel (I'm told ~33%). It's clearly not a finished product, so this isn't what you'll be getting. It'll be something better. I'm just testing the fit, the intake, and hp. Let's see what happens after that. I'll post all charts without redaction so everyone is on the same page.

    I disagree, their quality(while better than some other companies) has never been in line with their prices.

    Holy hell. That went from being a good looking snorkel that functioned like shit to a shitty looking snorkel that may or may not still function like shit.
