safari as far as im concerned is probably the best of the off the shelf ones. but even then are only as good as they are installed. long as all the clamps are tight and a bit of slaz where needed all should be swell.

Keep our eye on "evil buy", I watched for a few months & bought a used "genuine" nissan snorkel for $200. Does the job & half the price :)

I've had both Airtech and Safari and I prefer Safari. Pity you don't live in Perth, there's a guy here who does the best job of installation. An absolute perfectionist.

His name is Arnie and he runs a suspension shop in Balcatta called Autoride.
He is the distributer for Safari, Bilstein, Koni, Polyair etc here in WA. He supplies ARB etc.
You could eat your lunch of his workshop floor using his tools as a knife and fork.
Arnie takes the utmost care with your vehicle and knows his stuff.
I'v'e been doing some work at his home/workshop and get a good insight into his work ethic.
He has also done the snorkle on two of my cars and suspension on three. Does a lot of development work with the HSV and other sports cars.

Just make sure you ring him to book in a time to see you, he tends to pop out some times and lock-up the workshop.

I looked around, decided on a genuine Nissan one. paid $325. Going to fit it this weekend. Gotta say, I'm shi#n bricks at the thought of taking to my troll with a dirty big hole saw! Might need a steadier before I start.:)
