The river raider options (there are 2 they sell) are at the bottom. There is also an ARB snorkel that isn't out for the 2012's (I don't think at least). There is also a "volant" snorkel that is overpriced and looks like a squid on the hood. So here is the copy paste job.
EDITED FROM ORIGINAL POST: The RR with air ram will not let you lift up your wipers to clean them easily. That could be an issue if very muddy or if they ice up.
To be fair I'm not sure you really need the air ram. I think just having the small cowl location would take care of most of the splashes.
Other options to look at are the AEV( also sold as Mopar) being sold currently on Quadratec now for the 2012's. I'm pretty sure that this one is molded around the antenna. It's also beefier and allows more air flow then the previous version.

Looks like someone photoshoped this one pretty bad right were it goes into the air ram.
This is a picture with the pre-filter option(on the older version) that removes dust.
You can also put a donaldson TopSpin prefilter on and then you never need to clean the bowl. The downside is that it dumps crap down if your doorless (i hear) http://www.donaldson.com/en/engine/s...ary/000207.pdf
You can also get AEV china knock-off's from ebay for about half the price. From what I have read the plastic is not as sturdy, and I doubt they would work with the 2012's.
makes a couple versions

This doesn't allow you to keep the factory antenna location.
