I actually would think they may have some, I would love to test what happens with them when snow gets packed into the treads. My experience with mud is that is has been flung out pretty quickly.

If i ever hit snow this year I will let you know but being as Cali is in a drought and I am in SoCal. 10 to 1 I see snow in pictures only LOL

I've been studying for a midterm and working on a paper I have due Tuesday but decided to take a break and install this.



I took it for a test drive after the install and got wind noise after 10mph so I added a foam spacer to go between the light and the rack. The light gets warm but I believe that driving the wind will still cool it down and there shouldn't be any issues. If any one thinks there will be issues please let me know.



Here is another shot


40" Aurora SR 5w leds combo beam.... Ill take a picture of the lighting later tonight or tomorrow night.

Looks great, I'm considering that rack too. Is there enough room between the rack and the roof for a double row bar? Light bar is 42.94 x 3.25.

I will check on the 42.94 inch length but I believe the height will work as long as the mounts are made to fit correctly. I had to finagle the mounts that come with the light to work and will attempt removing a washer to try and get the mount to sit better later this week.

Snorkel installed yesterday.




on the install


1. Template is off by a little on the smaller drilling points the larger hole is correct
2. not a fun install, some of the bolts are a PAIN in the ass to install.
3. The hose doesn't fit ideally under the hood have to work it to get it to fit
4. Don't forget to cut the bracket out where you cut out the 4 1/8" hole
5. The instructions call for drilling the bracket on the the A-pillar before you are ready to full mount the snorkel. DO NOT do that.
Mount the snorkel, test fit, install hose, test fit again then mark bracket and drill.
6. When mounting the bolts into the snorkel itself, make sure to put the bolts in as deep as possible, if you don't you will run into an issue with putting the nuts and washers on later
7. Make sure to use a sensor safe sealant if you are going to seal the snorkel
8. Make sure to buy the spare clips for the fender before you do the install, can't really re use them
you will need 4 orange clips(red), 6 blue clips, 10 black clips

If you have any questions or need help feel free to PM me.

How did you mount this to the side wall? How stable is it? I am trying to figure out a better way to mount my Viair compressor in the engine bay on their custom mount. Thanks for your input.

There is 2 bolt holes there that you can screw into that are already threaded.

I have been working with Tyler @ Pelfreybiltoffroad and I am going to sell my Relentless Skids and Demello Sliders and go with Tylers stuff to make my truck be full Pelfreybilt armor. The install and transfers will happen at the end of the month or beginning of May before I head to Moab with TW

I won a BAMF light bar mount behind the grille, and Pelfreybilt Battery mount ( no duo battery idea anymore ) so I will install those when I get around to it and my shoulder isn't blown out anymore.
