    I need to know what area to cut...and what goes over the airfilter. I am not going to ford any deep water, but they look cool and I hear that they up your fuel economy a bit. Thanks all.

    I too have been looking into this recently. Here's some threads that helped me generate ideas:

    Check out my site to see how I did mine. Its a very cheap way to do it, and works great. I havent seen any increase in mileage however, but who can argue with the 'cool' factor? lol

    Could a dual snorkle work? Since diesels need lots of air, i was thinking of putting a dual snorkle on sometime when i get my blazer. I think it would look awsome. does one big snorkle provide enough air? Would a dual one be just a waste? I think it's probably pretty easy to make a snorkle. Just like making my potato cannon.....

    double your pleasure, double your fun.

    So, which one of you is the brains of the operation?
    To tell you the truth it's not exactly a "brains" type operation.
