    Jus got to thinking, There arent any snorkle kits for Blazers really, but wondered if someone ever modified their hood to take an H1 Hummer style forging kit to the Blazer. Im guess it would interfere with visibility of some kind.

    has nothing to do with being a paying member. this is not your typical snorkel question.


    and for what it's worth, you post a lot of stupid questions. your first 1000 posts were questions like how big of tires can i fit? so get off this dude's back. it's an original question.

    I wasnt sure whom you were talking to at first. lol.

    Im sure ive posted my share of elementary questions. Ill become a paying member soon, jus not in the cards right now. 20bux to some ppl actually means something. Its not that this site isnt worth it, ive gotten alot of good info and hopefully have shared what lil I have come to known about K5s. Probably the main reason I wanna become a member is to view some of the pics and ideas and projects that ppl post. Some pretty unusual and one off type stuff.

    what does any of that have to do with what i said, someone simply said to use the search feature, and he replied and said that he was unable to because he` s not a paying member, so i simply said for him to pay up, which had one of these ":D " next to it, which would mean its not serious, just bustin his balls a bit, all in fun......so get off my back...as far as my first 1000 posts being about my tires, i`ll admit, i had a few...because it was a big decision, and very costly, so i didnt want to make the wrong one....but come on, thats a little exageration...so get off my back dood

    couple TECH ideas for ya:
    http://www.therangerstation.com/Magazine/Feb 06/offroad.htm
    http://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/Snorkel.html
    http://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/MySnorkle.html
    http://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/EFISnorkle.html

    I found these on a for site. My buddy did something like a combination of the last 2 and told me he found on a ford ranger site and these must be his inpiration. I may do something like that on my 71 too with the low profile inlet on cowl
