Got on the RR snorkel

Couple of notes:
I would use a 3 1/8 saw not 3"... we had to force it in there and my buddy hit it with a rubber mallet and it bruised it real bad. I am about to cry about that.

OUCH your buddy smacked the shit out of it with a rubber mallet.........
Looks good though

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

x2 and I cant believe a rubber mallet did that. I've slid off rock and into a tree with the top of my RR snorkel putting the entire weight of jeep into it and didnt even make a mark on it.

I'd take the tube off on the inside of the fender and try and PUSH the dent out from the intake tube going through the fender, looks like it just about lines up with the dent. DO NOT USE HAMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's not a bruise, it's a speed dimple

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...
