Nobody ever made them for Broncos. However Safari makes them for the Land Rover Discovery that fits the Bronco's pretty well. They are expensive though.

Other than that.... You have to make one:thumbup

I see most people using PVC piping and a mesh screen. Looks like hell..personally I'd go for the safari snorkel and deal w/ the cost.

Go to the junk yard, you should be able to find one for next to nothing. The safari snorkel looks good on the bronco's if thats the route you are going with yours, if you look around you might find a good deal on one.

Check out JrdBronco he built one for his 93. But honestly snorkels aren't worth it.... If your going into water over your hood invest in a boat.

Heres a pic of mine, I used 14ga sheet metal.On the back side there is a 3'' inlet pipe.

IMO the factory setup is only good for street driving, the snap together plastic lets lots of mud and water into the box and you have to hope your filter stops it all from going into the engine.

If you search ghetto k&n i think you will find some more info.

I made this one. Works great. About $35 in 3" PVC. Pretty much drilled a 4" hole to fit the elbow through. Conveniently, the throttle body is about 3", so I just used some heavy duty sealant and stuck her in there. For aesthetics, painted it black with some Krylon Fusion for plastic. Used a doubled over piece of door screen for a filter. Sounds pretty sweet (they call it the loud pedal for a reason :thumbup). It's actually attached to the body for support using a chair "L" brace and a ziptie. Looks exactly like what it is, $35 worth of PVC, two zipties, and a chair brace...but it works.

u try it in the water yet?
Yep. Completely airtight but the electrics shit the bed:doh0715:. That was the reason for the "Sixlitre" tuneup. New coil, ignition box, plugs, wires, cap, rotor. :banghead but not a drop of water in the engine. :thumbup

Half the reason for the snorkel is NOT for going under water. I want one because the air 6' off the ground is much less dusty and cooler than the air being sucked in from right above my radiator. I never plan on submerging the thing.

Also true. You dont have any of the crap coming out of cars or dust being kicked up from big rigs or diesel fumes from school busses.
