wondering if anybody has made a snorkle from the inside coming up behind the seat yet?

That's what he meant, we did it without cutting out beds. We ran all our snorkels up through the rear seat frame rail. 2" pvc risers fit perfectly between bed and rear of seat. I know I know, from just looking at it you would think they wouldn't fit, but they do.

I did mine like this and works great. I've put 7500 miles on this set up since march this year. 7500 is correct!

I'm not sure what's more amazing. 7500 miles in one year or the engineering that went into building that!!!!!

LOL yep it ain't pretty but functional. I work on farms with mine and was having to change or blow out the air filter every few days because of the dust being drawn it from the side. (Poor Polaris design). After the snorkel, I would have about a tsp of dirt on the filter every 2 weeks. I have $60 in it and I can move it in about 10 mins to my future ones since I trade every year. Just bought a 2015 that it's going on...;)

That's it and the flexible elbows came from Lowes. I didn't have to, but I did trim straight across above the handle on the bed release to make it easier to open and close the bed. The red hose is the crank case vent.

Hose is 2" x 8' long that I got at a Case IH dealership, most farm supply stores should have it. Make sure the hose is non collapsible. Fittings were from Lowes and with an ID of 2", might have been a little over 2" can't remember

HA! thats great! i love it! Paint it black and BINGO! lol See my intake sucks from out under the hood, i dunno why no one has snorkeled in a similar fashion to the jeeps and stuff. Get yoruself something that runs up the front cage and has a collector on it up top. IF I WAS TO SNORKEL, id do something similar but it'd be out front. I do however realize that yinz guys with the 570's cant do that cuz yours sucks from the seat post area...what a crap design too...but we've all realized that already. Oh well, watcha gonna do!? Good job! Way to be Different and get the job done!

We haven't done that yet cause it looks retarded, just like a jeep with that snorkel. It just don't fit and isn't asthetically pleasing to the eye

What is retarded to me is the poor design of the fresh air intake on these new models. At $37 a pop on air filters every week during a growing season (20 filters if I hadn't snorkled), I'll look retarded. ;)

I promise you you give me a 570 in my hands and I'll create a better looking snorkel that looks great and fits great.
