I've seen photos of some on the Opel Blazers in Indonesia, would love to get my hands on one of those kits (and they're 6 lug drive train...), but for the most part anywhere else, all I've seen are some DIY jobs that don't look near as polished and clean of an install...

Here in swampy Florida in the US, a snorkel is high up on my list of next to make/install mods... Being the rainy season right now, I stay off the trails for the most part because it's mostly standing water...

At the moment I have a cheap eBay intake... DEFINITELY not ideal for off-road and water crossing use as it actually points DOWN lmao but my filter box was cracked when I got the truck, I stumbled upon this setup in a junk yard, I installed it along with a new filter, and have just rocked it ever since...

I have the same setup as blazen does. Mine works well but i dont off road that much. I do get a little better gas mileage than i did with the stock filter system.

Yuo guys do know that a cold air intake does nothing but sound good. These are comp controlled trucks, extra air and the comp adjusts to it. And its not cold if its in the engine bay. Its hot air intake

Personally I have never seen one, but I'm not saying they aren't available. I'd go to a local autozone and get the components to just build one from scratch. Give yourself a sense of fullfillment?
