    I did a search, But nothing came up. Is there a company that makes a snorkel kit for the k5? I dont realy need one, but want one because they just look good. I seen a suburban with one on it in a movie and it looked mean.

    No one makes one for a K5/burb/crew cab, but the ones for a FJ80 are an almost perfect match for the shape of the fender :thumb: that is the one you saw on that burb in the movie "Dante's Peak"

    Why don't you just make one? I know you just want it for show but if you are actually using your rig in situations that require a snorkel I would bet 10 bucks that you're not worried about cosmetics. Grab the cut off wheel, some Hardware store plumbing tube, zip ties and a filter and BAM! Instant snorkel.
    Just my .02 though.

    My snorkel will be made out of poopoo pvc pipe from TSC when I get around to doing it. I need to make an air pot for the top of the motor though.
