Dusty trail rides and deep water fordings, anyone who takes their Jeep off-road is likely to encounter these conditions someday. The new Modular XHD Snorkel System from Rugged Ridge relocates the vulnerable stock air intake location to help reduce dust clogged filters and the risk of hydro-locking your engine. It is the first and currently only snorkel designed with the modular functionality of a pre-filter Low Mount and Ram High Mount air intake design. Unlike other snorkels, you don't have to give up flexibility for functionality. The Modular XHD Snorkel System comes standard with a Low Mount pre-filter and the Ram High Mount extension. The Low Mount pre-filter relocates the intake below the windshield, drawing cool air from outside the hot engine bay. The Ram High Mount extension moves the intake up an additional 21" to the top of the windshield. The two air intake mounts are easily interchangeable to give you the modular functionality best suited to your needs. The system is manufactured from durable heavy gauge plastic, mandrel bent aluminum and hi-temp silicone connecting hoses. The built-in manual drain valves channel away excess water to prevent it from entering the intake system. This snorkel installs with minor modifications to the fender, but without the major cutting and surgery that other kits require. The new lower air cleaner box installs in place of the factory unit, so you don't have to "hack and tap".

Comments about Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel Kit:

This thing def. takes 2people to install. The instructions were right on. I can install just about anything but I don't mess with gears and it was easy. Just plan to devote a WHOLE afternoon. The best part is you can return everything to stock without hurting your jeep. Just keep your old parts. It does require the factory air intake. I already had a cold air intake on so I had to trade out with a buddy. (Thanks Jeremy!) so far works great. Looks even better. I get tons of compliments. Can't buy gas without someone saying something. Two downsides- def need a off road antenna or the factory one will clank and drive ya nuts. And I couldn't keep my lights mounted on the windshield brackets so I bought their big bar to mount my lights is 3 more. It says compatible w windshield light mounts but couldn't make it work. Otherwise awesome!

  • Q:

    This Snorkel fits my jeep and I am planning to install it soon, but I was wondering how it works in terms of efficiency. Does it reduce or improve efficiency? And would including a cold air intake help? Because I hear rumors of both things happening.

      Thanks for the question. A snorkel usually doesn't affect efficiency of a stock air box as it normally replaces the silencers that many manufacturers attach to the box. I have not found a snorkel capable of working in conjunction with a cold air intake so to get the best flow out of a snorkel setup I would add a good free flowing filter such as the AFE unit you can find here
