Hi Guys
Where did you guys get your snorkels and how long did it take you to fit it. If I get one would you think I should get TOYOTA to do it or give it a shot myself. I wonder how much a new wing is for the cruiser when I mess it up and I can always get the son to paint it with his artists brush.

John,
Got mine from Devon 4x4, fitted it myself. Straightforward job, do it in
half a day. you need a largish hole cutter for the wing but measure first as
I am sure you can make it smaller than the instructions.
Regards, Clive.

John,
Snorkels are pretty easy to fit yourself or using a local mechanic.
The key advice is to use plenty of masking tape on the wing and pillars
to stop the drills from slipping and double check the positions of the
templates before you drill.
Another hint is to use proper metal rivnuts to mount the pipe on the A
pillar rather than the plastic rawl style plugs that ARB provide, these
can get easily ripped out.
