Snorkels

What is a cheap well built snorkel to purchase? It will mainly be taking place of my cold air intake for better mileage, but will also see light usage.

It's for a 98 Wrangler. But it should increase it by 1-2 since it makes your vehicle have a straight intake.

I've read up on the intakes and snorkels in this forum and from the factory the TJ's air intake is completely non-restrictive so anything aftermarket you put on won't help for your air intake besides fractional gains if any.

I know where you can get an ARB safari snorkel used for a reasonable price. It's here in the classified section.

Yeah I'm not saying that they're useless I was just saying that I don't think you'll gain anything performance or MPG wise by adding one.
