Yeah but that's where the airbox is. Any snorkel made specifically for the WJ is gonna be very similar looking.

Yeah but with the 4.7 at least, I don't think you can move the airbox farther back. And that's where you need to put the filter isn't it? There's not much extra room in there to relocate the filter.
