    NOTE: I no longer own Trailtoyz.com or sell these snorkel kits. I never visit this board, either. I'd be happy to answer questions via email about installing a snorkel on your K5 or Burb but you'll have to put together your own kit. In a nutshell:

    -ARB Snorkel for an FJ80 Toyota Landcruiser
    -Goto www.Ramairbox.com, order the fiberglass single inlet airbox for your motor as well as the spun aluminum top and a length of neoprene hose to fit.
    -Use the template that comes with the snorkel to mount it to the PS fender.
    -Use a heatgun to heat the plastic at the elbow of the snorkel and slowly clamp it snug to the windshield pillar with a large ratcheting clamp from Lowes or someplace.
    -You'll use the little angle bracket for the snorkel arm and a couple self tapping screws to secure the snorkel to the windshield pillar. You'll have to grind down the corner of the bracket a bit to make it fit right.
    -Route everything, seal it up and look at your cool snorkel!

    I might be interested in purchasing just the custom airbox (I have my own ideas for the snorkel). Could I get some pictures of just the airbox assembly?
