raising the air intake

So looking at the engine bay I've noticed the air intake is pretty low on this model and being that where I go there's a solid amount of water fording I'm hoping to fix that. While snorkel is the obvious option there aren't alot available for this model and I'm hope to get something less extreme. Just getting the intake to point up instead of forward would be very helpful. Anyone done anything like this or able to offer any advice?

About all you could do without going to drastic extremes of hacking sheetmetal for a gaudy snorkel, or hacking up your airbox and losing efficiency , would be to get some PVC pipe that will fit in The flex elbow. Have the PVC pipe fitted to run up and to the passenger side toward the computer box area as high as possible Then, when you need to ford, all you need to do is detach the flex elbow from the airbox and insert the pcv pipe and lay it up in the corner of the engine compartment.

I don't mean to hijack the post but where is that computer box?

If the computer gets wet our jeep will die anyways.

Up by the cowl hanging from the passenger side fender. Silver box with red plugged wire bundles coming out of it. They are water resistant, if not water proof.
