i dont think anyone makes an aftermarket one. i made mine out of less than 20$ worth of pvc. my hood is trash("speed holes" left over from firemans pick ax) so i chose to cut out the the hood back by the firewall just to the side of the brakebooster and run it out there. if you still have the springs on your hinges,im not sure how well it would stay up if you cut out the back support like i did. i connected it to the stock air cleaner with a 4"x2" rubber pvc adapter. this was the most expensive part at $5.49. i used 3 big c clamps to keep the air cleaner housing pressed tightly together. i made a small snorkel out of 1 inch pvc and attached all the vents to it-both diffs,transfer case,trnsmission,carb. some power steering pumps have vented caps,you could attach that one too.

anyway,it works good enough for me to cross 5-6 feet deep creeks,and the hood completely disappear underwater for several seconds. i looooooove the water...

let me know if youd like any further details.

I've thought of cutting at the top edge of the firewall and having the snorkel go up thru the cowl grille area where the vents get their air. It'd be a cleaner-looking install (assuming looks matter, which is obviously not the case on Scottie's rig ).

Talking

i thought about that too.it would look really cool coming thru there. another thing to consider,i guess,is that the hood is easily replaceable if one ever decided that he didnt want a snorkel anymore.it could also prolly go out thru the fender,which would also be fairly easily replaceable. tho that definately isnt a concern om my rig either. the only way that i could ever sell ine(but thats NOT gonna happen!) would be to someone that wants to beat the crap out of it like i do. with no roof,cut fenders,and the body very "trail bent", the only reason a person would want it would probably be to 'wheel it,in which case,they would prolly want a snorkel.
