I have a 2002 XS Callenger and no one does a Snorkel for it (No one I mean Safari, AirTek) I Was tinking of making a Custom one but am not sure ow to go about it and ow to attac it to the piller etc.
Any help anyone can give is greatly appreciated.
I live on the Sunshine Coast near Brisbane so if anyone knows of someone in this area that makes them let me know.

Thankyou all again

Richard

We have something in common mate, no one makes one for the Explorer either, if you find someone let me know, only thing i have found is that you have to get someone to modify one from another 4x4 which has similar windscreen angle or have one aspecially made up for your's, either way very expensive.

Goto an exhaust place and have them bend up some Stainless exhaust, it looks awesome when done correctly. Then just wack a Safari Ram head on top your done. the hard part is the mount inside the guard.

For that you can have a piece of flat plate with hole in it the side of snorkel pipe, with a small piece of pipe welded onto each side to use as a sleeve for the pipe from the inner guard to mount to, then use some flex pipe to mount to airbox.. works on GQs

Hey truckster, sounds easy, finding someone in Sydney to do it, thats another story. Soon as you say Explorer don't want to know ya.

Make up a template of what you want, and then take it to them, dont mention its a snorkel. tell them its an exhaust, there is no difference. ;)

Thanks Truckster,
How do you mount it to the pillar?? I thougt of the flex hose and the Safari head, I just couldn't think of how to mount it to the outside panels to stop it getting thrown/Shaken off??

Thanks again

Same as Safari, small right angle piece of metal welded to exhaust, and then self tappers into body work.

Yeah thanks
TJM Maroochydore are going to fit one tomorrow (Air Tech). Its a Triton snorkel. They rang the manufacturer directly and asked and he said it should have no problems, so they are going to give it a go.

Thanks all for your input.
