Some HMMWVs have it. I'd say these days most do not. It also looks appropriate coming out of the back of the truck along and then up the rear driver's side.

But I say just don't stall when under water! Talk to Justin - I'm assuming a diesel can survive without hydro locking just as well as any of the poor V8s he's owned. If you stall, then leave it off, and pull plugs etc when back on dry land.
I know how to drive in water and what to afterwards - I've been through several HMMWV driving schools. This is why I am pursueing some wading options and essentially trying to make the truck water resistant.

smoke stacks

Try it! Screw what everyone else thinks it's your rover. You might just come up with the next best selling rover accessory.

Tractors have stacks in front of the driver all the time and a land rover is not much more than a tractor!

Just because it's Diesel doesn't mean it's water proof.

Well, whatever I decide to do will be 100% reversible and simple bolt on. It can always be removed...

Less back pressure will help the turbo spool up more quickly and the turbo does cut the exhaust noise quite a lot by itself. Make sure your snorkel is well sealed though as they are not as water tight as one might think.

You do realize the military rarely even bothers with those stupid exhaust snorkel kits. We routinely sink them much deeper than you'll probably ever take that 110 and they run fine.

If you want a Darwin award go for it...

You mean the Army. The units I come from all ran fording kits as we spend half our time transitioning from sea to land and vice versa.

Tastefully? The tasteful way is to not have it on your truck full time and put an attachment on when you're going to expect the deep water if you have to do this.

If your proposed exhaust looks exactly like the Mantec snorkel it will be you will have an incredibly hot metal tube next to you or your passengers face. Sounds like a great idea. Next time you've driven your truck for a while go lay your face next to your exhaust. Then think about your idea some more.

Just a bit of advice. Look to other countries where people offroad 110s and 90s. How many raised exhaust systems do you see like the one your thinking of building? How many competition vehicles have raised exhaust systems?

Just get a second snorkel and mount it on the other side so you look cooler. Two snorkels are better than one right?

I think you'll are missing my point. I want to do something that hasn't been done before. I am well aware that Camel trucks, trucks in other countries, and the military all do different things. Yes it will be hot, yes it will smell.

Once again, I keep going back to the technical details of it, and whether it would affect performance, which I think we have covered.

That was the whole point of this! I was just asking how the stack would affect the turbo and back pressure. I do appreciate everyones comments though!

It's a future project, probably prior to Canada. I need to finish some suspension work first.

Please. Have you ever tried to wheel a school bus? I even run spacers to improve the radius.

Maybe you could cut a slot in it like an organ pipe, so when you floor it, it makes a musical sound. That would be amazing and it would make it stand out from the others.
