I want a snorkel for my 05 Tacoma and I know I'm not alone.
The new Hilux has one available... 04 and previous Tacoma owners have them. Landcruisers of all years can get them. I hear Volant is even making snorkels for Fords, Chevys, and Dodges.
Now, they are available for the Nissan Titan, new gen Frontier, Hardbody, and Xterra. TJM is also making a snorkel for the D40 series Nissans. Dont get me wrong here, I think it's awesome that the Nissan guys are finally getting aftermarket support, but us new gen Tacoma guys are feeling left out here....
Frontier snorkel, MSRP $278
Here is the Nissan parts link (hookin' up the Nissan guys): http://www.4x4parts.com/public_html/...8ac32a498b260c
Safari Snorkel has been contacted by numerous guys over on TTORA. Here is the official response they gave to Sisyphus over on TTORA...
"When it comes to new models of snorkels, there is several important factors that need to be taken into account. Obviously market size, cost to produce and of course having access to a vehicle. As the Tacoma is not a local model vehicle here in Australia, it becomes very difficult for us to even contemplate producing such a snorkel as we don’t have anything to work off. In order to do so we need to import a vehicle for that sole purpose which as you can imagine is quite an expensive process. The real underlying factor is that the importation needs to be warranted by guaranteed sales. At this stage we have no immediate plans to produce a snorkel for this model, but it is something we constantly monitor. We would look to sell at least 500 before it would be cost effective to produce an item for this model.

Now, why can't we get them to make us a snorkel for the new Tacoma??? Maybe an enterprising Expedition Outfitter can source us a manufacturer for one???
