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 dont 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 dont have to "hack and tap".

Do not attempt to install this snorkel kit unless you are advanced, creative, patient and have an extra set of hands available. The process took about 6 hours to install. You will require some extra tools that you may not have in in your tool box. You will also have to buy extra items to complete the install successfully.

Comments about Rugged RidgeModular XHD Snorkel Kit:

I recommend the product, it looks good, specially if it is what you want, lots of patients needed for self install, ignore videos about the product, because you do need to cut the fender even when in the videos they state no cutting. installation instructions is 22 pages long. they state it fits 2012 thru 2015, i have a 2014 and the lower plastic portions those not align perfectly, the molds need

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    How much cutting is actually involved in the mounting. Is it just 2 cuts with the size in the directions or do you have to guess the size of the cut?
  • Q:

    "I have a Gobi Stealth roof rack, which mounts to the front pillars. Will the Rugged Ridge snorkel fit with that rack installed?"
