Although the template we got with the snorkel wasn't made for our Ford Ranger, we were able to modify it to get the most accurate hole placement possible. The five holes act as a guide-one for the air inlet and four more to secure the snorkel to the fender. We strongly suggest test-fitting the snorkel numerous times before drilling the inlet hole. If you don't have a buddy or wife around to hold the snorkel up for you, we suggest bolting on the upper snorkel mount and lightly shutting the door onto it to allow it to stay in place. Take your time and don't rush this part, because a 3 1/4-inch hole isn't the easiest to cover up.
