    looks to me like just a bunch of parts that you could by at home depot.

    Why spend that type of money on a system that you will probably have to modify......

    I think this guy just came up wiht a home brew system and is trying to make a quick buck....

    That isn't anything more then freaking PVC, probably was white to begin with and he sprayed it black cause he was to stupid to find black PVC. Then on top of it all its all freaking slanting this way at that.

    Edit.. I see why it is slanting, had to clear the antenna!

    the best kits go through the firewall into the cabs. if you are chest deep in water then you know your snorkel is next. back up dummy.

    Its a J**p and thats what those do it yourselfer j**p owners do. Either that oh pony up mucho casho to get ripped off for stuff they don't need.... I agree, the best snorkel is the one through the firewall in the cab. Thats what the mud runners use and it seems to work damn good for those fellas.
