I would go with a single snorkel (if you really need one). Two would look silly. One will do the job just fine. If you make one, let us know how you make out.

There is no performance gains with a snorkel, the only advantage is in heavy dust or deep water and you will never get that deep without major ignition upgrades.

duel exaust duel air in take

and not everything done to my jeep is just for performance sure my exaust gives me more power but it also sounds awsome and the lift and tires are for extreem offroading but putin the fear in the little rice burner is priceless so regaurdless of the added power to my engine i think it wood look origanal.

The little "hat" that attaches your air intake to the throttle body is very restrictive; a single snorkel setup might work marvels regarding air intake improvement.

If you go for two snorkel setup, be sure that one looks like a snorkel and the other one like a periscope ... if you dont want to be called a CHICKEN!
