Wow. What a difference. How did you get the snorkel to fit with the roll cage?

No fitment issues with the snorkel at all. Since I bought new NAS fender skins I was able to put the snorkel in the right spot the clear the cage.

Jonathan,
Did the hose that connects the air filter to the snorkel come with the snorkel? I have a disco 200 and I'm debating different air filter set-ups.

I used an NAS V8 air filter and housing. Attaching the snorkel is as easy as cutting the air horn to fit the snorkel hose.

The used $20 Shop-Vac tubing I found at Lowe's.

Dear Wolf,

(I am calling you wolf from now on because the intro on your website it too funny)

It looks like I am buying those flares from Phoenix37 for my bastard child. I'm looking at the pics and it looks like the flares would give me a few extra inches of possible wheel opening, based on the location of the bolt holes/rivet holes in the tub. What do you think? Did you get a good look at how much room they would give me if I cut the bodywork to follow the inner line of the flares?

Sorry for the hijack, looks great!

The previous owner trimmed about 2" all around on the front fenders, and about 2" on both sides of the rear openings. My truck had 35"s with no rubbing.

Fabricated an integral receiver hitch today. I notched the rear crossmember and recessed the receiver tube. I welded 1/4" steel plate on the front as support. The rear of the tube has some angle welded to tube and that it bolted under the crossmember. The steel rods are for tow chains and a little lateral support.

I don't like the glossy paint on the crossmember - need to repaint in satin....

Looks good, but I agree with you on the paint. It just looks weird to me in anything but Satin Black.

I'm guessing because he was cutting/welding his rear cross member and it was in the way and is a hazard to work around.

Si mi amigo. Access to the back of the crossmember so I could weld. I also cleaned and painted everything, and cleaned the tank.

Wolf, what are your thoughts on recessing a receiver into the cross member completely (assume no tank or enough room to get a pin behind it). I want to put one on my trailer but am not keen on having it stick out. Stupid I know. I am not sure if I could use a "standard" pin depth or one close enough to not be a problem using it.

It's not hard, you would need longer stuff to go in the receiver tube as well.
