i had the river raider snorkel sitting in my garage for over a year, because i became hesitant to install it.
i wasn't sure about the install; what it would take, how much of the FJ i would really have to cut,
how long it would take to complete (day, weekend?) also, the issue with installing new windshields and body clips.
so, one day when brian and jen were installing my windshield, i told brian about the snorkel debacle.
he offered his knowledge on clips for the body pieces, and how i would have to take it apart to install it. i took note.
recently, i got a bug to just get it done! and i was tired of looking at the box in the garage. (and i needed another windshield).
i gave brian a call. he was all for tearing my truck apart!
so this past weekend, we tackled this weird little snorkel. we had to disassemble quite a bit to get to where we needed to be.
overall, i love the way it turned out. im sure the snorkel design works better on the jeeps. i think they stretched the imagination a bit
making their snorkel work for the FJ. i have drove the FJ for a few days now, and haven't noticed anything (wrong) with the truck.
so thats good. now for some pictures! (wish i would have taken more)
gutted. hood hinge and all!
getting this in... too many tight turns!
getting the air box sealed up and rerouted.
all buttoned up.
can't thank brian enough!
he was a huge help in the tool department,
and knowing everything about those damn clips and body pieces!
good guy to wrench with for sure!
