snorkel

hey, i have a delema! i like the look and stuff that the snorkel will allow the jeep to do! but honestly dont think i will be going in any water like that! So my question is, since the K&N cold air intake and the snorkel are similar costs, what type of performance enhancement do each do? Torque/horsepower!????

try a search first

K&N Air Filters?

maybe try something like this, I am going to try it. It is basicly a KN filter sticking through the cowel so you get both.


or a better version than this

IMO don't do either and put the cash towards a lift. I run an intake and it looks cool and all, but I don't think it really does all that much. The snorkel looks cool too, but are you really going to bury your jeep up over the engine? And if you do, there are more issues to address than just the air intake. Again, that's just my opinion, take it however you like.

450 is the min. for a 3in suspension lift

i am going to do a 2 in. shackle lift AKA BB lift and then a 1.25 in. body lift totals is about 330 (BB=230 BL=100) as well as this www.jeephorizons.com/tech/cowl.html because it seems really cheap and good insurance, cheap, keep the stock filter, and get more water clearence

Well shame on you then

Did u have any other problems besides an intake? Like electrical? Submerging an alternator is probably not a good thing.

I understand there are people that do this, I'm just saying it isn't necessarily something that one should AIM for.

If you're willing to do 2", then yeah, go 3". Same amount of work, still a small enough lift where you aren't going to need to add a bunch of stuff.

What type of lift you get depends a lot on what you are going to do with your Jeep. You can do a budget boost, 2" for around 100 bucks. You could also add a body lift of an inch to that for another 59 bucks. This will allow you to add up to 33" tires. It will ride pretty much like stock. I would do this for a daily driver that doesn't see trails on a constant basis, or as a stepping stone to a better lift in the future.

Check out Rusty's lifts, they are good quality and inexpensive. If you are going to be doing a good bit of wheeling, then I would go with their 3" Basic kit. If not, then a budget boost and body lift will do the job. If you do a 1" body lift, the only thing you must change is the position of the radiator fan shroud. Just drill new holes in it for mounting. For a body lift, I wouldn't go more than 1". These are all fairly easy to install. If you can put on shocks, you can install these lifts.

kinda hard to do an add-a-leaf on a vehicle with coils both front and back.
