Do you have a Pic with the RIver raider installed with the A-Pillar lights. thats one of my big concerns as i want to be able to use lights (RI D2's most likely) on the A-pillar also and some snorkels seem to interfere with that.

3JKs1H1 This looks like a good solution, easy to modify before you wheel (with an extension tube). Doesn't look absurd in the mall parking lot. You don't want something all blinged without no dents, scratches, and/or missing parts.

Vanne if you have a aev heat reduction hood, the aev snorkel requires no cuts..
01-12-2013 11:53 PM
WhiskeyMike Is the river raider snorkel the only one that doesn't require hood or exterior fender cuts? Looking specifically for a 2013.

Oh man, donít do that, only rich movie stars have those here. If I had one I get locked up and accused of clubbing baby seals. I have a recipe for those too by the way.

ViperKAG Can someone point me to a CARB approved snorkel? I havenít found anyone willing to pay the Peopleís Republic of California CARB extortion money to get on the approved list.
FYI I have a great recipe for Spotted Owl, But you will need to get some Bristlecone Pines to grill it over, and itís best to do it on a no burn day.

This is one of the cleanest Jeeps I have seen in a long time, very nice work picking everything out and making it all look right.

I like that, I'll check it out - it would be handy to have the back open.

wmphoto I know this is an old thread but...
Here is mine...
As for maintaining it... Check the silicone spots every once in awhile, make sure look at the bottom of your air box every once in awhile as well..

Its been hit multiple times offroad and still solid.
Also, remember not to push in clutch while submerged if you have a manual!

Terex Seemed to me that half the SUV's in Australia had them. This discussion makes me want to watch the snorkel scene in Dante's Peak. But that was a Suburban...

My pick also in this catagory.
IMO the best looking and best design, but I'd like to see some more examples of 2012 installs. Not that I have aproblem with 'em I just want more info about it.
