Well, actually this poor man's snokel isn't that jeep, but it cost less than an ARB setup.

I found this link while browsing.

P.S. When U cut the hole make sure U tape over the spot to protect the edges of the remainder of the Jeep's paint.

I thought about building a snorkel myself, but cannot find any ABS plumbing in either 2 1/2" or 2 3/4". Most plumbing stores I've been too don't even know what it is.

Anyone know any places to purchase it?
