Got a new Snorkel and had some fun (but not with the snorkel)
Well, I got the River Raider Snorkel (love the quality and sound). This was a case of closing the barn door after the cows got out (that's the last I'll publicly say on the subject). But, I also found some great fun wheeling in the NW.
Go find power line roads. They are the best. Here are some pix from the weekend. Oh yeah, only high center if you have a buddy or tree to winch you off. And, before I forget... all that armor under a Rubicon is worth its weight in gold.
I wish I had the time and energy to install all my Jeep stuff myself. But alas, I like to have things done by professionals. My Jeep dealer installed and painted the snorkel for me.
I only noticed a difference in the sound when I installed a K&M air filter in place of my stock filter. Note: The snorkel uses the stock air box in an ingenious way. I will post interior engine compartment pix as soon as I have time.
I love mine too and it works great with the Hypertech Max Energy Programmer Lots of power now! After putting on the RR my mpg went up to 2 mpg. And now I am getting over 19 + mpg with both.
This is how I hooked it up!

Yes, they are Xenon fender flares. Thanks for the compliment. I have a 4-inch Superlift and the tires are BFG M/T 35/1250's. It looks tall on the one shot because I am high centered on a hump in a gravel pit. I was waiting to winch off when the pix was snapped.
I live in Olympia. But, I bought my Jeep in Longview. The dealer down there is great. My brother works for the dealership. Those most recent pictures are from the A-line area of Capitol Forest. There are some great road/trails there. We are stoked about trying the power line trails. They had some wicked hill climbs.
You can also wheel at Tahuya. There is no snow there now. Have fun. Check out the NW section for wheeling. I will post next time we go out in case someone wants to join us.
Check the River Raider web site for the installation guide.
When you retro fit the box it is 100% water tight! River Raider gives you all the parts you need to do the air box!
Over 2 years now and still looks and works great!
