I know this is an old thread but...
Here is mine...
As for maintaining it... Check the silicone spots every once in awhile, make sure look at the bottom of your air box every once in awhile as well..

Love the River Raider and had my old AEV (Donaldson Company) Pre cleaner to install on it. You can buy the precleaner direct from Donaldson.

No its the Tite Top from Avenger Supercharger. Just a hair diff than the jk8 kit in dimension. Made for the 2DR. Only thing you get is the top and bulkhead. All your panels remain the same!

I like that, I'll check it out - it would be handy to have the back open.

This is one of the cleanest Jeeps I have seen in a long time, very nice work picking everything out and making it all look right.

Can someone point me to a CARB approved snorkel? I havenít found anyone willing to pay the Peopleís Republic of California CARB extortion money to get on the approved list.
FYI I have a great recipe for Spotted Owl, But you will need to get some Bristlecone Pines to grill it over, and itís best to do it on a no burn day.

Oh man, donít do that, only rich movie stars have those here. If I had one I get locked up and accused of clubbing baby seals. I have a recipe for those too by the way.

Is the river raider snorkel the only one that doesn't require hood or exterior fender cuts? Looking specifically for a 2013.

I just ordered the River Raider mostly because I wanted to keep my rigid lights.

Friend just got his installed, unfortunately since mine will be more flush, I'll have to relocate the antenna to driver side.

This looks like a good solution, easy to modify before you wheel (with an extension tube). Doesn't look absurd in the mall parking lot. You don't want something all blinged without no dents, scratches, and/or missing parts.

Do you have a Pic with the RIver raider installed with the A-Pillar lights. thats one of my big concerns as i want to be able to use lights (RI D2's most likely) on the A-pillar also and some snorkels seem to interfere with that.
