Just one look at the Rugged Ridge AmFib Snorkel System for Wrangler JL & Gladiator JT models and you know this is not your typical snorkel. We designed the Low Mount Snorkel to make a visual splash by devising a base that blends seamlessly with the factory cowl panel and then topped it off with a low air intake that instantly becomes the focal point that you can’t take your eyes off of. While making such a big splash is great, our quest for a superior snorkel went far beyond the visual. We engineered the entire AmFib snorkel inside the Jeep to literally make waves, by designing a system that is over-engineered to be less invasive, performs better and installs easier than any snorkel we’ve ever built before. The entire system and its components look “at-home”, as though they we’re part of the Jeeps original design. But where the rubber really meets the road is where the AmFib Snorkel truly shines…Quickly swap the low air intake for the High Mount Intake and you can defy water crossings with total confidence. Patents Pending and U.S. Patent 8,960,347.
Read the small letter, you’ll need the low mount in order to use/connect the high mount. I bought the high mount just for the looks but after it arrived I was forced to buy the more expensive part in order to even be able to connect it to my Jeep.

My wife always wanted a “real” Jeep so we picked up a 2020 JLU Willys in Sarg Green (looks awesome). As you can expect we had to start doing things to it, and this was one. Even tho her Jeep will probably never come within 100mi of any type of stream we liked the looks of this. We bought the short snorkel kit. Install was fairly easy, instructions were spot on for the most part. I installed the hose clamps on the side of the tube to allow for more good clearance (the clamps hit the hood liner and the hood is harder to close). Added a K&N drop in filter at the same time and it gives it a mellow rumble when floored.

Snorkel is great. I painted it to match the color of the Jeep and now it looks like it is stock.

Fairly simple install, looks great and works well. I had a slight difficult time getting the front grill off because I have a winch so it was a little tricky for me. I had to also order the rugged ridge pre-filter because I live in a place that has torrential rains. All in all either with the ram air intake or the pre-filter installed its it's a great product. I've tested it in East Africa were I'm currently stationed and it has done a great job. I've noticed my air-filter is noticeably cleaner for longer periods between changes specially after days of use where there are no paved roads. As far as getting cleaner cooler air into the engine this is an outstanding option. I can not say wether its great for forging deep water as I have only forged water up to about 3 feet. But with forging water there are other things to consider not just the snorkel other items need to be changed or upgraded, not something i'm interested in anyway. All in all i'm very happy with the snorkel for the way I use my jeep.
