constant source of cool, clean air is available. Manufactured from premium quality polyethylene, Safari snorkels are incredibly resilient and UV They’re individually designed to suit specific vehicle models, and are available for a broad selection of 4 wheel drives.

Price: $200.00
Pros: great for better breathing engine specially during water crossings
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: ARB snorkel is a valuable addition when having to do water crossings in order to keep your engine breathing right. Also works well in the desert in order to get the cooler air up higher than on the dusty trail.

Price: $175.00
Pros: Cheap, good fit. (I got the Chinese made version from eBay)
Cons: The ram air head was split apart a little bit, but the clamp holds it together fine. If it breaks I'll buy the safari version instead of the cheap knock off.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got the Chinese version of the snorkel found on eBay for Christmas. The install wasn't too bad as long as you can find the right size hole saw and have a good drill.
I had to use a dremel to cut out the inside of the fender since it's metal on the early zj's (plastic later on).
Was a little disappointed the ram air head was split, but it's only at the bottom and it is held together with the clamp just fine. If I break it I'll buy the safari version.

Price: $275.00
Pros: Durable. Won't fade.
Cons: You have to remove two small bolts holding the snorkel in place in order to remove the doors. It's easy to do but it just adds more time.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If installed correctly, this snorkel is great. In my opinion it is the best you can get for a TJ. Won't fade in the sun. Mine has taken a few hits from limbs and rocks on the trail and it is holding up nicely. If you are looking for a snorkel, I highly recommend this one.

Price: $375.00
Pros: Like the look
Cons: Makes taking the doors off hard, probably wont get much use, had to cut the quarter panel
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The snorkel was installed on the jeep prior to me owning it. I like the look the snorkel adds to the jeep but it has its downfalls. It blocks the hinges on the passenger side door so taking the doors off becomes more difficult (still possible). I cant see myself using the snorkel to its full effect in the near future, another downfall. I have had no functional problems with it, only cosmetic.

Price: $300.00
Pros: great looks and functionality
Cons: Install required some disassembly of right front of jeep under the hood. The instructions had implied that the structural mout that the battery tray is bolted to had factory cut holes on both side to pass flex hose through. My 03 had a hole only on one side. I ihad to unbolt and remove this piece to cut the second hole . i am having a problem finding a roof rack system that doesn't interfere with snorkel at mounting area, and can't use a cab cover.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: product looks good, all hardware seems to be good quality except for the two screws that fasten the tip to the upright. they rusted up within a week. Have been in deep water on jamboree and had no issues.

Pros: Cold air intake & protection from accidental water intake
Cons: it eats a lot of bugs
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought this from someone who ordered it for their Jeep but totaled their Jeep before the snorkel arrived. I love the upgrade! Drilling a 4" hole in the side of my Jeep was a bit scary though!

Price: $371.99
Pros: Cleaner, colder air. Decreases possibility of hydro-locking.
Cons: Tree limb magnet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Prior to my ownership, the previous owner of my TJ had installed this; otherwise this is probably not a mod that would have been near the top of my priority list.

Furthermore, living in the midwest, trees are a abundant part of wheeling in this region. Snorkels do NOT like tree limbs!! I rip the top screw mounts off EVERY time I go wheeling unfortunately. Therefore, I'm never w/o replacement hardware.

. . . that said, I LOVE the unique quality it gives my TJ.

DISCLAIMER: Just because you have this product does NOT make you impervious to hydro-locking!!! Your belt-driven radiator fan can still pull water @ your engine while running in bodies of water . . . hence electric radiator fans.

Comments: I have a 2001 XJ installed ARB snorkel and cannot find a windshield washer solvent reservoir to fit correctly, any ideas on what mid 90s will work? Already tried a 96.

Price: $350.00
Pros: Pre-formed parts that fit pretty seamless. Allows for more comfort (mentally) in water passages, a small increase in gas mileage, fresh cool air to the box.
Cons: Took a little longer than expected to install, intake noise is a little loud with top down (not obnoxious).
Recommended? Yes

Comments: After install you will be happy with this product. I would suggest using a better sealer than suggested and take your time with this install, mistakes will be costly. If you want this unit for looks, think twice, it does give an extreme feel and look to your jeep, but again, mistakes can be costly for an appearance only part. Look forward to being the first guy in the group to test out that "new hole" and be weary of the guy that says "yeah, I've been down this stretch before, why don't you take the lead though?"

Pros: Looks good, works, and could save your jeep from hydrolocking
Cons: Permanet hole in the side of the jeep and screw holes along the a-pillar
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I didn't install the snorkel, it was put on from the previous owner. I like it because it makes my jeep unique, and I have only seen one other jeep with a snorkel, and a land rover with one

Price: $350.00
Pros: Protects your engine and I think it looks great. Has one of the best and simple sealing systems. Water tight like a submarine.
Cons: The Install manual sucks!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: After it was installed I loved it and still do. But the installation was a pain in the neck. The instructions were horribly written, and the stencil they give you to cut the hole was off by a half inch, dropping the snorkel down so the doors couldn't be taken off. Took some time but with some redrilling and a little shifting, I got it the work right. If you by it from 4WD or FourWheel Parts house I recommend spending the extra money and let them install it.

Pros: Helps the engine breathe some cooler, cleaner air. Avoids water intake.
Cons: 3.5-4 hours to install on a TJ.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Well, there are only two ways to keep water out of your airbox on a 97 TJ. One would be to avoid water on the trails. Since that's nearly impossible, I took the other route and installed this snorkel. Had one on my XJ and I loved it. Works & looks great!

Price: $225.00
Pros: Keeps the air intake point high away from water and the hot air under the hood.
Cons: It takes about a min to take the passenger side door off because of needing to move the snorkel.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Personally I would have to say installation was easy. But I find most stuff easy on my Jeep. I have seen a small bump in gas milage but nothing really amazing.
