Mine is wired down the window and into the cab through a hole the enters the cab from the door jam it is sealed with expanding foam and covered by the plastic piece that pops off on the side of the dash when the door is open. I cut the plug off the light and extended the wiring so that it plugs in under the hood. I used two wires that fit between the body and the window then used black silicone to seal it into place so they don't come out. I have a Black Forest green so you can tell its there unless you look really close. (Black silicone)

ltsrapcon Darkfire I'll have to say I like your wives set up better. Now if was Dozer yellow... That would be the Heat.

Darkfire Sorry got tied up.

Here are close ups of my jeep and the wife's with the snorkel from what I can see and what the tape measure shows the 50" will not work with a snorkel using the standard mounts.
Measurements are from the bottom of the windshield

AGGIE_Rubicon Well thanks for the replies I will be looking for the additional pictures soon.

where the top of the snorkel attaches to the scoop, is 2 pieces with a clamp. you can shorten that piece a little to lower that scoop down. I was the same, I did not want to block the light either.

Which I did because the snorkel blocks part of the light bar if you do not trim it. Thursday I do some measuring of my wife's jeep and mine to see what exact issues there might be with installing it like you want.
Are you referring to the top of the intake where the ram air connects can be cut?

Except I am not sure how much that will help since you said yours is mounted to the garvin rack..... I am in the process of a build and just dont want to order things that I am not going to be happy with. My jobs is fitting the bill for parts and I am doing all the labor so I just am trying to save time and money if possible. Both of your jeeps look great BTW!
