Welcome to the forums. I believe Fastas has his 300 snorkeled. Submarine may have his snorkeled, also, but I can't remember for sure.

basicly get a short piece of pipe glue to a female adapter thread a male to barb into the female adapter, then work barb into a flex hose and hose clamp it off run flex line up frame along engine and behind your gas shutoff valve go under your shocks but up next to your frame once there put on barb again thread into a female adapter glue to a 90 degree street elbow and glue other end to a 24inch long piece of pipe then glue a long sweep 90 degree elbow on top of 24inch piece of pipe. all of this of course being 1 1/2 inch the flex hose should be roughly 4ft i bought 5 and had quite a bit left over, zip tie hose to frame to pull it away form engine as much as possible. i sprayed mine all black, but have thought of changing it to orange. i had to assemble mine off the 300 and work it in from front to back. You know as much as i know bout snorkleing i should sell the kits get all the pieces together box em up and sell em.

Also if you plan on getting int deep water you will need to snorkel your vent lines and seal your air box or you will eventually wind up with water in your engine or diffs.
