It's just a little hard to see with my hood propped open.
Dang i bet that thing works great. Why buy a huge snorkel when you have two or three laying around the house! Haha

To my eye, having the snorkel facing forward would it to suck in more debris and rain than if it were facing backward.

It is very likely getting dirtier, not cleaner air, since that snorkle's air filter is not as good at filtering air as the factory paper element filter is. Not even close.

It still uses the stock air filter, just instead of it taking air from your engine bay, it takes air from above the jeep

As a matter of fact I did, you'll also notice I did not answer the original post or even comment on whether either of my Jeeps are equipped with snorkels.
My reply was for the follow up posts passing judgment on a fellow Jeepers instead of just answering the OP's original post.

Had one, got tired of it hooking trees when I was in the woods. Plus you can fold windshield with it. I ended up selling it

When I go wheeling, the dust is pretty much everywhere (not just in engine bays).
You can hardly make out the headlights of my TJ in these pics.
Mine stayed cleaner than per snorkel but I was trail guide. When I was in mid or back of pack it made no difference.

JB I figured you of all people would do research before bashing a product. My ARB snorkel used factory box and filter with option of second filter on top.

Not to steal, but since we are talking snorkels...since its out of what I would consider hotter than average engine bay, does the cooler air from the snorkel help. And I don't mean gains like hp or gas mileage. Engines like cooler air, right? But I know In my short time owning a Jeep, things don't always pan out the same in Jeep world as the do in the rest of the world, lol. Like K&N air filters for instance, lol

Personally, I like the snorkels, it's just another tool, another ability, another 'can I go there?', yep, sure can. As someone pointed out earlier, that mud puddle is 10 feet wide, 60 foot across and could be 10 inches deep...or 4 foot. We have a lot of those kinda puddles in New England. If everyone's Jeep looked the same, why bother owning one... Boring. To each their own
