Will an ARB snorkel fit?

Hi,

I found a person that wants to sell his new ARB snorkel (he bought it 2 years ago but never installed it) for 1/4 of the original price.
Now i have to know if it will fit on my TJ because I have a lightbar in front my windshield.

Do you think it would fit?

Here is a pics:



Thanks in advance.

thanks for the link...!

one more picture from the drivers side. but on the passengers side it´s the same.:


looking at this picture i think only the air intake on top of the snorker wouldn´t fit, perhaps it can be modified a bit?

I dont think it will fit but you can always sell it for 1/2 the price to someone else that can use it. Hint hint.

i agree
buy it, dont make the whole!!!!!!!!!!, dry fit it, if it doesnt work then go ahead and re sell it

and it looks like if it is made to go a little higher it will clear,so you could buy some pvc pipe, paint it black and just raise it up 3-4 inches and then the intake would clear it

thant is of course assuming that it is round at the end, which it looks like it is

also remember it makes it a pain to take the doors off!!

i have always herad how difficult it makes taking off the doors but i dont see how. i understand that when installed it sits almost flush with the doors but if you can still open your door the full amount then how would it be harder? as long as my door is opened (not securely shut all the way i can slid the door off the hinges). is this just what everyone has heard or is there anyone that has the personal experience. just curious cause i plan on getting one soon (not that i need it but i think they look bada$$)

I looked at getting one a while back, but after wheeling with a few guys with snorkles I changed my mind. I spend ENTIRELY too much time in the woods to warrant buying one. I get hung up on limbs as it is, I can't imagine how bad it would be with a big black plastic hook sticking up. For me, it made about as much sence as adding ground effects.

Sorry for the hijack. :o

The snorkle does hinder easy door removal (not impossible, but not a piece of cake) and agreed it gets in the way if wheel'n in woods with tight trails, Frank has bent and replaced the head once already.

$100 NIB ain't bad at all. Flip it and make a little money off of it. Then put that $$ toward another mod.

shipping 4 bushwacker fender flares from quadratec to me would cost +120$. i think it should be something like that with the snorkel.

when you say its hard to take the doors off with a snorkle on are we talking about full doors, soft doors, or both?

if you think you may get water in your intake, then you can do this:

wont get hung up, and it is all you need, unless your really goin in, but then you have to worry about other stuff

has anyone tried this? it sounds like an intresting concept but how do you filter out all the s*** that gets inside the tube? and I'm also confused about what water would get into the filter box.

sorry about the hijack.

water into the ARB b/c of rain, i think there is some, but not much, b/c it can only get in while ur moving forward.

as to the cowl intake the cowl has a grate, and the way i understand it it has a drainthat lets water out, therefore if you put the intake near the top of the cowl, water wont get in,unless there is a lot of wind and it somehow doea, and the debris will just go to the bottom, unless again there is alot of wind

never tried it though, this is all in teory, but you would have the same problem with a arb snorkel so it seems ok.

I have had my cowl get clocked buy thick soupy muddy water it clogged the little drain with soot and mud then found its way into the intake for the blower under the dash and seized it up. I couldn't see doing that it really doesn't change your fording abilities that much if you think about it anyway.

i disagree, if your coming down a embankment into water it would help a lot, granted it's not gonna help if you go over the headlights, but if you come in from above the front end will dive in, and the stock intake would get water in it, then once you get completely in it would be level.
Plus i know im not gonna be fording water any deeper than the headlights or a little lower because it owuld mess up other stuff and get me soaked!!
but i havent tried it yet, nor have i been around much water, so idn,
and maybe the little cowl scoop would help a lot turned back towards the windshield, there would have to be a huge splash to get in that way and they're only like $40
