    Well Gents its been awhile since I posted I installed a Front and Rear windshield and had to turn my snorkel well its way to loud for the kids in there I am trying to decide how to reroute these things back outside the cab I really do not want to core holes in the back window but I think that might be the cleanest route let me know what you guys think.

    I had this same problem but I had a plastic rear window and just cut holes in it and poked the snorkels outside. But... someone recommended a sound chamber in the snorkel to absorb the sound. I was picturing a larger diameter pipe somewhere inline.

    I think this is what I would consider as well. Might be easier and a cleaner look to go all the way up through the roof and point the snorkels rearward

    I would do through the back panel and make it as clean as possible. I would be worried about ripping them off on a low hanging branch or something if they were taller than the roof. Especially on a machine that’s already sitting up nice like yours. I really try and have nothing over the roof line other than my 2 way radio antenna which is spring loaded.

    Please make sure that you can get to the snorkels openings to cover them with thin socks or penthouse if you'll ride in a powder puff like conditions, I didn't know that I had screens in the snorkels and when they got clogged my belt got very hot because of no air coming in through the snorkels. Leave and learn.

    You have room to give the sound chamber a whirl.
