Very nice color scheme.Been out of town for a week the bj-73's been parked. What to drive it today got inside and noticed some tree branch debris on the hood. A big thunderstorm came through while we were gone and my limb riser cables have saved me again. This is the second time they've deflected a falling tree branch. This time however the branch was about 9 ft long and 40-50lb. Very minor dent in the hood scratch on the fender and one of my pvc fishing rod holders was busted off the bumper.

Thankyou for the compliments: Color is a fair color match of "toyota Olive brown" by a store that couldn't put the "paint code" in the computer, but could scan a picture of the color.Very nice color scheme.
Like your snorkel, it completely erases the need to relocate the "Land Cruiser" emblem/tag and the indicator light delete.
Also, have a 70 series steel wheel fetish....
Can you share your wheel type, dimensions, offset?
Theyook really nice.
Keep safe and have fun

I wanted a snorkel for Emergencies(I live on a river that floods and on the coast where we have hurricanes) and the fact that if your diesel sucks in water you can bend the connecting rods unlike a gasoline engine which will just cut off. I happened into some free 6' X2.25" exhaust flex pipe (same diameter as the intake pipeing(so it's big enough). I decided to make a snorkel with it. Snorkel cap is a piece of 4" green PVC drain line with cap and spacing to allow enough air Painted black. The factory air cleaner housing has to be unbolted and moved around a bit. Seal housing drain with epoxy putty. Some work with tin snips on the inner fender well sheet metal under the hood. A black rubber drain line connector and hose clamps connect it to the flex pipe. It is functional, inexpensive, and doesn't look too bad (subjective). Some of the cheaper snorkels online are said to be multi-piece affairs and not really waterproof enough to be relied on to work for a long deep water crossing.
I believe the wheels are tacoma 16" steelies. I used one inch spacers to get sufficient clearance. Have to use loctite and proper torqueing and retorque after 2 weeks. That might not be enough with wider tires. Tundra 17" steelies(spare tire rims) look the same and may give you more options when shopping tires.
