Snorkel kit for Blazers?

Does anyone out there make a snorkel kit for blazers? I know I could fab one out of pvc or somthing, but it sure would be nice to find a custom built one that looked as good as it worked. I see them for Jeeps and Landcruisers all the time, but not for Balzers. Would it be best to just route the intake into the cab if you are going to be in a lot of water or mud? Whats best to use for the air cleaner encloseure? Custom or are they out there somewhere?

Landcruiser FJ80, almost a perfect fit. Otherwise, NO ONE makes them for our years of K5's/Burb's/Trucks

Would a snorkel kit inhibit air intake flow for a carbed engine? I was thinking of fabbing one up, but read somewhere that airflow would be restricted too much. ??

of course.. if you dont have ac.. just cut a hole on the firewall and into the cab.... or come up from the floor.. I dont mind where mine is... personally I should have finished it.. the snorkel pushes up to my cab almost.. I just havent finished it as it looks far away from the cab. I will get that done soon.... Also I could cut the snorkel down and get the intake lower as I dont think I will ever need to use the snorkel up that high.. unless I have scuba gear on!!!!
