Re: what to use for a snorkel???
That doesn't seem like a very good idea to me. If the water splashes up and over the hood, guess where it's going? I like the idea of into the cab at the very least, but I still prefer going up as high as possible. I have some pics of a friend going windshield deep in water, no problems, with his stock setup, the way you described it, he'd have had problems. Before the external cage idea (still in the idea stage), I had planned on running the 3" pipe through the cab and going up next to the roll bar. I still might, it'd be protected, wouldn't be in the way too much (between the seat/outside of jeep), and would still serve it's purpose. The stock roll bar would be a great place to anchor to as well.
