or it could be the truck has two snorkels. It's not unheard of. There was a phase not too long ago where every Defender featured in LRO had two. It appears the advantage (other than an indication of girth, or compensation) is for increased airflow to maintain top end performance, there's another example on post #8 of this thread: http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=2702

i'll give you the background being PS'd, but i dont think that truck is.

and hell...i removed the snorkel on mine. and replaced it with a blank.

so much for airflow.

Thumbs up

Spotted a white D90 (I think with a fiberglass top) headed westbound on I74 in Indiana today around 5:45 today. I was driving, so I couldn't take a pic...

Where is the 308?
I see a nice 300SL and an e28.
The 308 must be hiding behind the SL because it's 42" high

EDIT: okay I see it now. It had a blanket over the boot.

I dont think thats a 308. I think its a 512 BB. Even better.

Im guessing the 308 is to the right of the truck in front of those toolboxes.
