Snorkel for WK2

Hi all this has been posted on a couple of other jeep forums so thought I'd put it on here as well, company requires 150 people willing to buy to put it in production, so if your interested send them an email.

Hi all<br />
Have just returned home from Dromana in victoria where airflow vector have had a good look at the wk2 grand cherokee . Michael from airflow says they can make a snorkel work for this vehicle, but now need genuine expression of interest before they will tool up to make it. Please contact them via email if you are serious about a snorkel for your grand.. info@airflowvector.com . They will have some more information on their web site and facebook with in the next week.<br />
thanks for your time <br />

Hi guys, Airflow have received 40 requests for snorkels so far, it's a good start but we need to get 150, so keep them coming, we need to support manufactures who are willing to make accessories for the WK2, so send them an email or contact them on face book.

Here's an up date on the snorkel.

Gidday again
this is just in from Michael at airflow
I have posted that we have started making the kit on Face book.
We have had about 40 responses.
So we have started making the snorkel kit. Should have a shape shortly.
I am doing some performance simulations to see what is possible at the moment
Will talk to you and a couple of other what it will look like soon.
This will cover the diesel.
We will need to check the petrol version to see if needs a different kit?
We are trying to get the web site fixed . Some nice person has hacked into the site.
Keep in contact
Please put this on to the site you are posting on please.
Kind regards Michael
great effort guys sounds like its happening

Why would you need a snorkel? Not as if you are going to drive under water... I only see them down here on old people's 4x4s towing caravans....

I have a genuine CAI on my Jeep, it works great and best of all I don have some ugly elephant trunk on my vehicle. Not until at least I retire and tow a caravan aimlessly around Australia.
