Ok so as promised i started working on the snorkel. I had been researching about homemade ones since i bought the jeep and could not find anyone who home built on the passenger side. So i decided not to follow the pack and make one that i wanted. I started with the standard 2 inch PVC pipe and went to town.

I had to come up with a filter box idea that not only would fit in the space but would hold a filter as well. Found a performance air filter that goes into 4 inch air intake piping so i used two reducers and made the box out of 4 inch PVC.

Don't worry zip ties are temporary and the whole thing is going to get painted.

Then i realized the coolant overflow was in my way. But i didn't stress it because i figured that it would fit where the stock air box was and boy was i right fit like a glove.

overall im happy with the little project and i just wanted to be different and not have the dam thing in my vision on the drivers side. I also wasn't a fan of running the pipe all the way from end to end on the outside of the fender as well.
