i don't have any bookmarked, but i have come across their IFS re-engineering and SAS conversions before- there have been times when they have MATCHED the power of an SAS with a lowriding - out flexing IFS model (30" front end travel- stock is 10")
i was downright amazed when i saw the pics
the CV joints were replaced with extremely heavy duty uni joints and massive axle shafts

no idea what the site was,
here is one which is re-listed on the planet isuzoo forum though, shows the engineering they go through
planetisuzoo - Isuzu IFS Lift
it was done 4 years ago, and from it the americans worked out the unnecessary bits to just to a simple bracket cut and shut (diff drop)

DIY Safari Snorkel installation

Unread post by 2007rodeo » December 4th, 2008, 1:57 pm

Hi all, Has anyone here installed a Safari Snorkel themselves?
I am looking at doing one on my RA7. I was quoted $360 for the snorkel and another $300 for installation.
Should I do it myself?
I have access to a pretty large range of tools on the farm which could make it easier.
Cheers, Will

works well too, unlike the safari and airtec, it actually IS water tight, brand new hole into the airbox, plugged the other side

visibility is not hindered at all

Chickoroll,
I like the snorkel you've fabricated.
I think santa may be bringing me a Safari snorkel for Christmas/Birthday(my birthday is 2 days after Christmas and I seem to always end up with 1 big present instead of lots of little ones- can't complain!).
