Larry,

Mantec. Check out the Expedition Exchange site for an interesting article on how it was fitted.

Can I run one through the intake on the top with some conduit and PVC if I mate it to the airbox?
I figure that and some more duct tape and my truck will totally fit my personality.

But seriously, can I do that?

Hi,


I use 4" st/st dairy pipe and bends for mine with a Safari Snorkel top. To finish it I had it powdercoated gloss black.

Hope you like it....

Cheers,
Andy

That photo of the air box on the top of the wing looks alomost like a Wolf's intake.

I've seen that truck with the airbox on the wing. It doesn't look that bad in person. That guy has more stuff hanging off of his D-90 than I have ever seen.

i think that box on the wolf is for the radio antenna. Over on discoweb Danny Chapman has a home made snorkle for his disco. Looke to be made out of PVC with a genuine oil filter as the cap.

The large box up front is for the antanae, but the smaller one over the wing vent is a part of the snorkel assembly.

My friend has a 109 with a MB diesel in it. Me plumbed the intake out of the wing and into a defender canister that is mounted on the top of the wing. Then a snorkel goes from teh canister to the roof rack. It looks really bad ass. I will have to get a pic for you guys.

Yep, got it from the Devon 4x4 stand at a show here in the UK. There available as a spare part so I'd suggest that you contact your local dealer and get them to price it up for you.

Cheers,
Andy

I had considered the Mantec. . . .seems clean and cost effective.

Thanks for the post Andy, Its sharp and unique!

bbbbbllllliiiinnnnggggg - bbbbbllllliiiinnnnggggg

I like the fact it seems its only attached to the front roll at 1 point? Very clean.

Can you email me a side view larger so I can determine your bends. How did you connect to your intake? Could you use a mantec top?

Also is dairy pipe difficult to bend?

Further, and this may seem like a stupid question, but with the intake facing frontal like that what prevents the water coming into the intake in the rain?

Just noticed this thread. The wingtop snorkel mounting picture posted earlier is of my truck. The whole advantage of that approach is simplifying the snorkel routing (making it much shorter). I mostly followed the configuration John Lee outlines on his Expedition Exchange website, although in his setup the air filter is contained within the snorkel, just below the cap, and is a smaller filter than stock.

Hi Larry,

The bends I used were pre-formed 90 degrees ones. You can't bend 4" st/st dairy pipe as it's only got 16 gauge wall. If you look closely at the first two pics before I painted it you can just see the tube sections butted together. (Will get you another pic tomorrow)

The Safari Snorkel top is designed to force the rain out the bottom of the moulding, there are drain slots in it there. I'd think any top that fits 4" pipe would be OK. I just liked the aggressive look of this one.

Yes.... it looks a bit 'bling' but it's there to let me stand on the bonnet to get to a storage rack that i'll be making to mount onto the cage and it also hides all the dints from its military life.

Cheers,
Andy
