It is very cool I just don't like how much space you lose with the snorkel plumbing under the hood and relocating the battery and can't run twins that way ....Not bashin but I think I'll go with the AEV . Nice Jeep.....Very nice !

Anyone know any advantages/disadvantages there are between the river raider and the AEV snorkel? I really want to get one, however, I also want a roof rack...doesn't look like the racks I am looking at would work with any snorkel system I have seen?

The best advantage of the RR snorkel is the fact that it's made out of metal. I know of at least one guy that has stated his snorkel is what kept his windshield from getting jacked up on a particular area of the trail.

River Raider can change the mount for a extra charge if you have know the space needed with the roof rack.
I think the River Raider is made much better and stronger than the others!

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.
Sweet! I haven't seen you around Oly. We live up in the north end of the county. Got 2 JKs, An '07 X with lift and 37's, half doors and soft top. And an '08 Rubicon that'll get lifted soon enough. Both are Unlimiteds.

mrsig, did you check your differentials after the water crossing in the second pic? Water higher than 18 inches submerges the diff breathing tube.

I think my owners manual said 24". I'll have to double check. At any rate, I recall seeing my diff breather tubes running up near the top of the radiator and the rear going up the fuel filler tube? Both of those are well above 24-30".

Pg. 292 of our owners manual:
Standing Water
Avoid driving in standing water deeper than 20 inches,
and reduce speed appropriately to minimize wave effects.
Maximum speed in 20 inches of water is less than 5
mph (8 km/h).

That's awesome. Is there a kit for that or did you put that together yourself?

Cant you somehow put the tubes through ther airfilter box so they would use the snorkel system to breathe? I dont know if this is possible... Total noob on this but seems like if you could that would make everything waterproof up to the snorkel level in theory
