Smile Snorkel mounting to window frame - pics?

Want to see how the instructions show the mounting of the brackets to the window frame - RN sent the brackets but not instructions...if anyone out there has some...or knows where I can get a PDF, thanks.

Sorry if this is a little off-post........

The majority of the time you don't need the full portion of the snorkel.

What about running with just the bottom portion of the snorkel, ie on the Mantec the portion that comes out of the top fender and runs straight along the top fender. Then when you feel you need to raise the height of air intake, ie water or extreme dust, you can simply attach some 3" hose and clip or zip tie to the top of the cage.

I was thinking of cutting a 45 degree bevel to the end of the tubing (similar to an exhaust tip) so it creates a natural roof to the end of the tube to keep out rain, etc.

This would be a good idea, but your forgetting that 98% of rover owners have a snorkle for the neato look of it.

Exactly...poseurs!

Of course, we then have those who add a roof rack with ladder, four off road lights up top, shovel and pick on the hood, etc.. Those are 'yer super poseurs!

maybe true out west. here in the Mid Atlantic and NE there is plenty of opportunity to hydrolock engines...I think your number is a bit unfair. Though I know of a few that fit the bill

Didn't mean to hijack thread or start a "poseur war".......can someone pose pictures for the poor guy of the bracket attachments.

My point is that most of the time the majority of us don't need the true function of the snorkel other than pulling in cooler air from the outside. I for one would like to minimize the "look" of the snorkel. Maybe something like the H1 or a Caterpillar tractor rather than a drier vent from the apocalypse........while still being able to quickly convert to true snorkel capabilities.

It was just meant to be funny. It's only coincidence that it's true.

Here you go- mine needs to be re-powder coated when I paint the winshield frame (the early ones weren't painted). I for one, have had my engine completely submerged a couple times. See picture 2 no lights on the rack.
