    So let me get this right, $280 for $45 worth of abs pipe and fittings and a piece of angle iron as a bracket? And to top it off the snorkels are spaced out, with some simple enginuity and about $50 you can build a better setup.

    I like the plate used to hold the snorkels from rattling, but honestly I prefer the solid riser out of HP couplings than the 2" pipe w/ a 90 on the end (looks home made). Also the vent lines are showing. I guess $280 isn't bad for someone who doesn't want to do a little research, but IMO anything over $180 is high for that set up.

    I totally get what y'all are saying.  However, there is more to this than meets the eye.  To buy all that this kit includes is way more than $50.  $50 wouldn't even touch it.  The level of detail goes all the way down to custom grommets that hold the pipe in place on the custom sheet metal bracket (not angle iron).  The kit also includes special high heat hose that is actually sold by the inch.  In short, I agree these kits can be great do it yourself projects, but this kit isn't comparable to that.  As an avid ATV do-it-yourselfer myself, i always applaud and encourage people to make their own stuff, heck that's how High Lifter got started in the first place!  When you do build this stuff on your own it is never as cheap as it seams.  You will make at least 3 trips to the hardware store.  If you don't you will make one huge trip then at least one more to return all the stuff you didn't actually need.  If you don't take the time to return the parts you don't need then you need to include them in the cost to build your own kit.  Next factor in your time and fuel going to the hardware store and all the added time to create the kit (which is actually most of the fun).  After all the materials are purchased there are many options for finishing out "the look" of the kit.  If you don't have access to good equipment what you come up with will work, but might not actually look great.  There are some obvious exceptions in this area because some people just have pure talent and can turn poop into pizza.  Either way you go I'm always just glad to see people riding and creating new stuff.  It just rubs me a little wrong every now and then when something we sell gets compared to a $50 hardware store ticket with no time or thought.  Like i said, buy it, make yourself, just go ride and have fun and know our kits aren't straight out of the hardware store plumbing section :).

    I like it because it has the bellows for the diffs and a simple bracket. Seems like I always end up doin my bracket for my stacks 5 times cause I decide I dont like it. Looks like it has a fitting for the water pump or maybe Iam wrong. Good chance I may pick one up just for the fact that in order to hit the pond next ride I need to save some installation time. The RzR is about to have a heap of stuff to be installed in very little time.

    Outlaw550- I agree $50 is quite off some. For me to buy all of the pipe, fittings, glue, vent hose, vent hose fittings, breather hose, rubber couplings, bellows, rivet for water pump vent, silicone and dielectric grease is a lot more than $50.

    Once you look at the big picture I guess its not to bad of a price for someone who doesn't have the time to run to a hardware store to pick up or return parts. Also some people don't have the patience or skill level as some.
