Cool 98 ram snorkel

i have a 98 1500 that i am wanting to put a snorkel on because i do hit large mud holes and puddles and would rather not pay to fix my engine. i know they do not make any for my truck but i am wondering if any one has built their own and how you built it. and pics would be great.

Might get one from a Jeep, maybe Cherokee or GC. I'd see what the Jeep guys do to protect the differentials , gotta vent higher than water as well as transmission. Hot transmission and differentials when immersed in cold water will create negative pressure and suck water. Next, your charging system, starter, ecm/pcm. If you look at a military vehicle, you can see how many mods were done. Even spark plug wires are covered. If I was into mudding, I'd find a pos 4x4 and not take my daily driver. My nephew ruined his Jeep by driving in deep water. Not the motor, transmission and differentials.
