    I ended up giving it a shot, running it on glassworks fenders, I ended up cutting out a chunk and reshaping a section using an old soldering iron as a plastic welder. It left about a 2" gap between my A pillar and the back of the snorkel, which is ok since I plan on running an exocage between the snorkel and body.
