Snorkle

I hate the idea of cutting a hole on the fender to put on a snorkle for my TJ. I like the idea of the new JK snorkle kit with the AEV Heat Reduction Hood. Anyone try this with their TJ? I would assume you would need less hoses and you have the comfort of keeping your a/c. If not then I'll be the guinea pig.

I haven't heard of anyone doing it yet but if you do attempt it please keep posting updates because I am in the same boat as you. I really want one but do not want to cut into the fender!

It takes only 2 minutes to cut the little hole. What´s the problem?
And you can keep the A/C with an ARB safari snorkle.

cutting is not that bad get a hole saw in the size you need the hole to be and measure several times before you cut. if you use a hole saw it will look like it is supposed to be there.



a 3" metal cutting hole saw will cost you $20

My take was that its easier to replace the hood than the fender. I have the necessary tools, I just wanted to try something new.

Ok i have searched the forums and google. If i get a 4.0 snorkel will it work with my 2.5? I know the ARB just adapts to your stock air box.
