    Man, this took four hours [U]with[/U] someone helping a lot (Doing more than me).

    Anyways, I obtained a template and instructions directly from ARB at this email address, included everything I needed! Mitch Carter: [email]mitchc@arbusa.com[/email] (For those searching for templates via Google like I was)

    Anyhow, talk about precise. This thing was much harder to install than anticipated. But now that it's installed, I dig it. It doubles as a thermometer for the outside temperature, my intake temperature is always the ambient temperature outside!

    You need big holesaws and I found an 83 and 89 mm at Lowe's, I needed an 86. But I made it work. After I use I returned the $20/each things back to the store :p This isn't a step-by-step but just to inform anyone of whom is thinking of getting into this. The work pays off because they look so cool! Plus, I put water over the hood too many times for comfort. I don't like pulling out muddy air filters.

    The cuts into the body were nervewracking and I actually messed some up, so it didn't come out as clean as I'd like. But overall, it works, that's all that matters. Sealed airbox and we're good to go. Now for pictures.

    That looks good. I went with the mantec and it didn't seem to give me any troubles with installation.

    Mantecs are a good looking intake. I just prefer the Safari, I like the way it runs up the side of the truck. Plus, I got a killer deal ($150 to my door)

    That's a steal. The reason I went with the mantec is the metal construction and it sits in closer to the truck. I had a friend with the safari snorkel and he nearly ripped it of with a tree so keep that in mind when your wheelin. I do like how the safari seperates the water that's a cool feature. Mine is just faced backwards

    I thought so, too. That's the primary reason I went with it. Initially, whenever I planned on actually buying a snorkel I was going to go with a Mantec and throw a Safari Topper on the Mantec. But this snorkel just happened to find me, so I went with it. I hope I don't rip it off, I will not be happy haha
