I don't know why Jeep didn't do it on the newer models, but Ford has been doing it on many of there cars for awhile. I've seen these intakes on the excursion, the escorts and many of there van lines. Just through the fender but not the cowl. I've ran a snorkel for the past 18 years. While it worked fine, the questions I got from random strangers at red lights was getting old and driving me nuts. This setup gives me a lot of free space in my engine compartment. And I'm moving on to flat fendering my Jeep next week and dumping my body lift. It was time to move into a new chapter with my Jeep as it's been much the same for so long. If I was going to ever sell it, I would leave it alone. But after 20 years she's a keeper and it's time to move her forward.
Why doesn't Jeep do it from the factory? Don't know. Why don't they make them with more lift and bigger tires? Why don't they go back to the flatfenders? Why did they make a new SUV that looks more like a Nissan???
