    MTPockets has one on his. His rig is in the Project vehicles section. I dont recall what type he used. In the project vehicles section his is named Money Pit. (now called Mad Max for obvious reasons once you see it.)

    I believe he got it from these guys: www.petersoffroad.com
    It's not one made for a K5 but for a FJ-40 or something.....

    I've contacted ARB about this exact same thing and here's what I found out. I was told that most of the Blazers are using part #SS80HF from www.safari4x4.com.au I was told that they run between $250-$300 and are easily adapted to Blazers and Suburbans. Hope this helps.

    www.man-a-fre.com ARB said that the fj80 snorkel which would probably fit our trucks best. He also refered me to www.ramairbox.com for the intake part. I would like this set up on mine but have other $ needs.

    I have that movie just for the Suburban. I always cry as its overtaken by burning lava. That snorkel looks ARB to me and I love all the extra lights through the heavy ash..

    I just built my own. I know you emailed me, but I deleted your message by accident before I could reply.
    Mine cost me about 40.00. Its made from 3" PVC pipe, and it adapts to 5" sewer pipe and attaches to the stock
    corrugated air intake pipe from the stock air cleaner. I cut the hole in my fender, and ran it thru. Due to the position of the hole, I couldnt reuse
    my stock hood hinges, so I installed some lift cylinders on the hood.
    I will dig out my pics and upload them to webshots this weekend.
