A mate helped me with mine..... actually I helped him!! LOL.... the most important thing is to check EVERYTHING twice (at least) to make sure you're right! And reading that post in the archives, I wondered how the dude who was gonna use the jigsaw ended up???? We used tin snips for the 4omm hole, (both being fridgies in the air con game, had used them once or twice before!).....

That post is archived, which (I think) is why we can't reply to it.

As Brian said, check twice or more, then cut, hack, chop. I put a safari snorkel on an 80 series, a few years back. After doing the marking out, the hardest, scariest part is cutting the 75mm hole in guard. I used a small drill bit, and drilled a multitude of holes around the outer rim of the large hole. Laborious, and too easy for the drill to slip, scratching the paint work. In hindsight, would have bought a 75mm holesaw, if Mt Isa wasn't 6 hours travel away.

The other point, with 80 anyway, is you will have to break your arm in 3 places, so it can fit comfortably through the mudguard, to tighten all the fixing nuts.

Like the safari unit, over the others, though no real reason why. Doesn't block your vision, to any extent.

Advice would be to pay ARB, or the like to fit it for you. About $400 fitted???

Can't remember most of it.
