I always wondered why snorkle companies put the holes on the side of the Jeep, and some low enough where it will get submerged. If you did have a failure the water would get sucked right in. Plumbing it to the top of the Jeep, like you did looks and sounds like it would make more sense.

You may want to also add radiator fan protection. I'm sitting at the dealership now hoping I get my burnt out mud clogged fan motor replaced under warranty. I killed it at the Jeep Rocks and Roads event, which they have invitations to here on the wall still, so I think it should be covered. The mud/water soup was about side rail depth, and my entire engine way was totally brown. My air box was actually full of mud, and my filter was muddy!

I spent 2 hours cleaning all that mud out of my engine bay... ruined the air filter as well.

I was there Saturday around noon. When did you go?

I have a question? What if you run the intake pipe straight thru the firewall into the cab, maybe under the dash? I know you'll probably hear air pulling into the filter, but you could probably get rid of the air box completely. This sounds to me like something I may consider, but y'all probably know better. What do you think?

Yeah, you could run it straight out into the passenger side. Then if you had your girlfriend riding with you, you could stomp the gas and it would suck her shirt off !

It sounds crazy doesn't it? But to be honest, I'm after functionality. Being serious, how much water enters into the cab?under the dash? From the TB thru tube to cab with filter-maybe boxed to control noise. Not much modifying, not much time, not much cost. I like river raiders snorkel(big bucks), and I think the work done on this thread is intuitive. Any ideas on this? I mean all this and a way to turn your ride into a sleeze machine. What more could we ask?

I don't know anyone that has done it in their JK but off-roader's have been doing this for years.

I love the look, but in actual thinking how much more did you gain from the original box to the cowl mount 4-5 inches in height, It looks great though--- very custom!!!

not so much the height that he gained, but the fact that he no longer has his hood channeling water straight into the intake, and that the intake is no longer at the front of the Jeep.

Jeep totally dropped the ball with the intake on the JKs, but its not too difficult to fix, this is just one option, and a good one at that.
