When they told me a year ago that they were working on a snorkle I wondered how they would do it. There is not much clearence between the cab and boom. They did an excellent job. The whole assemblly is well built and they even improved on how the new cover seals against the filter.

As far as how it looks, I could care a less what it looks like as long as it works. And it works great. I used it in very silty conditions for a couple of hours yesterday and checked the cabin filter after I was done and it was clean as a whistle.

The biggest problem before with the cabin filter was that the intake grill was right next to the tracks and the tracks would throw the silty dirt into the intake grill and the filter would clog up quickly.
