CJ Snorkel?

Where can I get a CJ Snorkel? Everywhere I look they have them for the YJ, TJ, and XJ.

Please! Don't screw up a perfectly good CJ with a snorkel. I and many others have forged creeks, stream and rivers in the midwest and never needed a snorkel.

Leave it the guys with YJ and TJ to screw up a Jeep hood!

I'll scare up some pics that'll show you why. Better than a chunked motor. Yes, we will swim the river on one of our trails, and soupy mud that'll cover a 35" tire.

Also have found that on dry dusty trails, air filter stays cleaner, as you are "breathing" cleaner air up high, without the stirred up dust.

edit: BTW, I think the PVC snorkels look pretty cheesy, like something from Kmart or off of an H2. But it allows you to be pretty creative for not a lot of money, tools, or fabrication time.

An ugly A$$ snorkel is an airflow restrictor on the trails.
It will also cause a rich mixture.
Your snorkel is only as good as your other engine components.
Your distributor, coil, ecm, plugs/wires all have to be water proof.
Just about everything electrical.
You better make sure that your snikeler has zero leaks

What I've read a lot about is people just putting the air intake into the drivers compartment, that way there is no way that mud and such will get sucked into it, and you don't have to look at a snorkel while driving.

A guy locally has a Toyota w/about 4" of lift, and has a snorkel.. That's gotta be the stupidest, ugliest, most useless thing I've seen around here. Up in my corner of CT, we have no trails for even mild wheeling. Where they heck does he plan on submersing it to the top of the windshield??

While I agree that a snorkle has limited uses, if someone want's to install one, good for them. How about some positive feedback for this guy. Much better than pissing him off and leaving a bad impression of the forum.

they are not made for the cj or any carberauted jeep engines beacuse when idleing you heed greater air flow than the snorkel can take in but with fuel injection you can have one beacuse of the map sensor and it adjust to the air flow

WWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Stop whining
I would expect a want for a snorkel from a tj owner.
A snorkel is completely useless except for using it for a submarine jeep.
It looks like crap.
It restricts your needed airflow.
It's going to suck up every bit of dirt/dust.
For the geniuses with the home built non filtered snorkel
it's going to get something kicked up into the opening and
drop down into the combustion chamber. KAPOOWIE
Sure, if you just have to have one get one. It's your jeep
But don't cry if you get flamed for it.
Whiner

ok, then i Have a question. While i am driving my CJ-7 through mud, or even hitting a puddle of water on the street. For instance I was pulling into a gas station in the rain and i hit a puddle that was about 3-4 inches deep, water flew up everywhere. My engine died down and i had to run it for about 2 minutes before i got enough power back to drive. This happens at mudholes and on the street. The little For instance i left was the worst it has happened, I noticed water in the intake opening while i was letting it idle.
i have the stock intake housing, but i do not have the little tube that runs from the intake housing to the radiator area. If i got another one of those tubes would that solve the problem.

I dont want a snorkle because I dont do river crossings and stuff. I just want to solve my water/intake problem.

Sounds to me like you need to seal your ignition as much as you need to seal your carb area.

83 cj7 all stock except lift and tires and all the drive train.

I would not have started this thread if I knew it would throw some people into a$$ mode.
I never stated whether it was for my jeep or a friends. Also I never asked if I or anyone else should get one. I just asked if anyone knew where to get one or if they made them.

I have learned a hell of a lot here and hope to keep doing so. Childish flaming BS or not.
