No it's just a chrome pipe with a cone filter.

Just follow this design. The filter is in the fat part at the middle.

This is a cowl snorkel. It goes through the firewall and breathes through the vent by the wipers. Imo, thats all the snorkel a logical driver should need. You get into water past that point and you got bigger problems anyways.
This is the Spectre cowl intake specifically designed for the XJ. ~$200 at O'reilly's and it comes with the filter.

I like XJ's. But don't bring an XJ to do the job of a boat.

In that case, I'd still recommend the Specte. Then just buy the exterior snorkel piece and put it on for looks. Or custom design one that wouldnt normally be possible due to plumbing constraints.

After researching snorkels I went with the Airflow. Aussie made (better plastic than the Chinese knockoffs), quite a bit cheaper than the ARB (Safari).

http://www.airflowsnorkels.com/details.php?id=19

In order to go this route you'll need a OE airbox & intake hose (from filter to throttle body). These should be cheap at your local Pick&Pull.

The snorkel came with detailed instructions & a full-size template so you only cut one hole in your fender. Be aware this snorkel goes into the rear of the airbox, you make a block-off plate for the OE intake opening. You will need to move or replace your windshield washer bottle.

As for looks, you be the judge.

Working with cars is a little like a really awesome date: you start out expecting this to be something simple and straightforward; four hours later you're laying under her, panting and cursing, and things are a lot more complicated than you thought.
