Safari snorkels would be the pick of them.

Don't have an idea of the cost of fitting, but did one once on an 80 series, and it's more involved than fitting a roof rack.

Hi johns

Another vote for Safari, quality Australian made product and very strong in the event that it is hit hard by vegetation, which does happen out in the bush.

Best investment for any vehicle.



Cheers

I have an Airtec snorkel from TJM. Good quality and looks better that the safari one in my opinion.

I made the mistake to purchase an imported snorkel for my Discovery 3. The build quality was that bad I refused to fit it. $200 down the drain. None of the sealing surfaced were flat. All distorted. Then I purchased a Safari snorkel $400.00 later and couldn't be happier. Build quality was excellent. Safari have great information on there website about what to look out for when purchasing a snorkel. Well worth the look.

Personally I would stick with reputable brands like Safari, Airtec etc. The only thing I don't like is some places don't treat the surface properly after they drill hole in your guard just ask what they do. I fitted my own and repainted the bare metal first.

I sometimes travel in very dusty areas and like to put a oiled sock over my snorkel to stop the dust, Safari is the best designed snorkel to accept air and have a oiled filter.

I got mine from ebay from southport vehicle dismantlers new for $100 made overseas.
heavy solid and fitted perfectly in about 3 hrs myself.

I like to buy aussie stuff if i can, but not at 4x the price.

i bought side steps and brush bars from TJM , even they are chinese made , but seem pretty well made.
cheers
