Default Help with snorkel routing

Hello all, first post here although I do alot of reading. I have a 93 jimmy, CPI 4wd and I've looked through this forum as well as others for ways to route a snorkel and I am stumped. I have seen it done on tbi motors and 2.8s, I understand the concept but getting it out of the engine bay around the oil filter seems challenging. Any help would be appreciated

If the oil filter is in the way move it or find a different spot to drill the hole in the fender.

How does one go about moving the filter? There's really no other way besides through the hood which I don't wanna do

Take the bolts out of the adaptor and find another spot to mount it. Either do it in a spot where the factory hoses still work or make custom hoses.

I've seen the filter moved down on the framerail. People with body lifts drop it down but its by a bracket that bolts to the fender and just drops it so when the body raises its actually back in the same spot hose length wise.
