Snorkel on a 4cyl
i have a 97 tj and i would like to put a snorkel on the 4 cyl. does it reduce MPG? if so by how much? right now i have 5 inch lift. 33s. light bar. 4 cyl. and SRC front bumper.

if none of that reduced ur mileage yet i doubt u have to worry much

TBrownSTL 12-27-2011 02:33 PM

im down to 14-16 MPG right now

I put one on my 2.4 4cyl. It may improve a little and how you drive it. I took out the 4cyl. air box and put in a 6cyl. air box.

ok i usually drive it in 5th at 2500 rpms around 60-65 mph.

it seems to help .a slight increase in milage.Im getting 18MPG
with 31s
the biggest improvemant is climbing hills. paved ones, it pulls alot stronger.

I have 35's and 4.11's and drive in 4th at 2500 rpm and about 60 mph. I get the best gas milage in that gear about 20mpg. If I drive in 5th it's to floor and poor gas milage

wow sweet. looks like my next mod is a snorkel. now will a snorkel fit with a light bar?

bryanb 12-28-2011 08:03 AM

It should

sparkyjeep 12-28-2011 09:04 AM

it could depend on what light bar you have

I to say the least love tires.. Lots of reading and tire research over the past few years on AT and MT tires.. How do you like them? I don't know anyone who uses them on a DD/WW so I am intrigued to maybe get a quick first hand review from you on them

TBrownSTL 01-03-2012 10:36 AM

I love em. Little exspensive. But I've gone through creeks and mud holes and haven't had to use 4wd yet. Tires do all the work for me. People always know I'm pulling up to a stop light. Also makes mud fly. Love em love em love em. I'll post a picture up when I get home from work. Around 5.

OK. Thanks

Not a problem. Just bought them a year ago as well.
