Here are a few of mine.




The filter can also be relocated under the hood for wet weather.

It is two inch pipe. I have the I6. I will try to take some from the inside. On the grand there is a hole that is next to the air box that I went through. Just seal the stock box. It was not bad.
Here is the link to what I followed.

I just did ont mess with the paint can. I used the stock box and sealed the holes in it.
I got the guts from the picture gallery here if you search the xj and snorkel there are some really good picks.

^ its a dryer vent from home depot. The whole set up was under thirty bucks. took an hour to install. works great for when your nose suddenly drops into a water you didnt know was 4" deep.

No. you need alot more than rain water to stall or hurt an engine. just steam cleans the top of the pistons. lol

If your worried about your nose dropping into 4" of water, then you have more problems then water in your engine.

It looks great mounted flush and thats how i would want it to be. What im thinking is when i get to a trail, being able to raise it up a foot or two. and then for everyday driving bring it down flush again.
