I got a call from ARB on friday stating that they are looking at making Gen 2 Xterra Snorkles but wanted me to put the word out. If we get a good response, They are looking to put them into production pretty fast. Let me know what you guys think! -Steven

Isn't Safari the only company that makes them now?  Competition is always good.  From what I've read in the past it seems price has been an issue on these.

I know it's an old post. But if ARB made a snorkel to compete with Airflow who has the monopoly on the market, it would be a huge hit. The Airflow fluctuates in price but is usually in the $350-450 range. That's what a monopoly allows. Jeeps have snorks for $75-100 to start... Bring on a new option, split the market, get a $200 price point, PROFIT!

I've spoken to ARB about this many times... Hopefully it'll happen on day.
one of the big problems is that the Nissan stuff often gets "reprioritized" and usually it falls down in favor of parts for vehicles with more demand.

Well that's a bummer. Especially considering 10 years is a long run for the same body...  Sad
