One of the guys in my club made one for his Sammy. I think he used PVC with a bunch of angle connectors.

He cut a hole in the fender before the battery and routed the air intake through the hole and up the A-pillar. Not too much to it.

Mine is made of 3" aluminum tubing.

I'll find a pic and post it tomorrow. I'm going to be taking it off and just running a K&N soon.

I made mine with 2" pvc. The Samurai's air box routing makes it really an easy modification. I used a two chunks of pipe, two 90 degree elbows, and a electric conduit raincap do-hicky thing for the top. I just cut a hole right in front of the battery and routed it along the inside. I had to remove the headlight assembly to get it in there though. Works as a cold air intake as well, not much extra power... but noticable.

Just an FYI, if you unbolt the headlight/frame brace and move it down an inch or so, you can get 2" ABS by without any issues. Just use a 2" NH(no hub) coupler, and a street 90 and you're good to go.

Homemade snorkels almost always look lame because there's no good way to "finish it off" with a good-looking ram scoop with hardware store parts. Luckily, ARB can sell you just their scoop for 3.0" or 3.5" OD pipe, the same scoop as they include with their Safari Snorkel kits. This will make your homemade snorkel look much more professional. My housemate is doing exactly that with the snorkel he's building for his Sami. If he ever finishes it, I'll post some pics.

If you got FI definitley worry about your computer. I made a snorkle for a buddies jeep for about $5 plus the cost of a filter. Just get some dryer vent tubing and hook it up to your intake and run it up to your top and stick a filter on it

Connect some waterhoses to the vents of your 2 diff's and tranny. Lead the front diff & tranny hose to a high point under the hood. The rear diff can you lead to the rear door.
The ECU should be dry at all times, in to the glovebox is OK.
