Snorkels are COOL!! Congratulations. I thought of adding one to my ZJ until I learned that my distributor would be under water before the water entered my air intake, so that vision dimmed a little. Two weeks ago I went on a two-day, 100-mile drive through the Mojave Desert in Southern California. At times there was no breeze and the dust was everywhere. A snorkel wouldn't have helped me in that situation. But I'd still like to see a snorkel on my Jeep.

Again, congratulations.

Jay

Thanks! I took the pre filter option hoping it works as stated. Its supposed to trap the dust before it enters the tube. We will see!

WoooooHoooo.. A mid-life crisis is an AWESOME reason to do stuff that you have always wanted to do but never had the cahones to do before. I say if it feels good...DO IT!!! I am going through the dress rehearsal for mine. I hope to live very long though so mine hasnt really kicked into full blown crisis yet.

Good luck with the snorkel. Let me know how it turns out.

I was thinking hood first also but I have all these cool holesaws that i can borrow from work, just waiting to get at my hood. The cutting instructions seem cut and dry, and are very thorough.

Yea.. I dont think a snorkel would have helped much in SoCal, but I bet you got some wicked Mojave pin striping. Do you have pictures??

ScarlettRuger,

I don't want to hijack this JK thread, but the genuine Mojave pin striping doesn't show up. I've posted photos on my profile.

Keep the shiny side up.

Jay
