RUGGED RIDGE DEVELOPS UNIQUE SNORKEL SYSTEM FOR ’07 - ’11 JK JEEPS®

The standard low-mount snorkel system from Rugged Ridge.

The standard Modular XHD Snorkel System comes with a low-mount intake that is located away from the front of the vehicle, a safer position that prevents dangerous exposure to water during fording of rivers and streams. An optional high-mount ‘ram’ accessory moves the air intake up an additional 21-inches to the top of the windshield for deeper water crossing. The new design also benefits from the ability to draw cool air from outside the hot engine bay. Rugged Ridge’s snorkel is manufactured from durable, heavy gauge plastic, mandrel bent aluminum and high temperature silicone connecting hoses. A built-in valve allows owners to clean and drain a catch basin, preventing water from entering the intake system while out on the trail. Because this system retains the use of factory style air filters, it is not compatible with other aftermarket cold air intake kits and snorkels. "When JK owners were asked online what they would like in a snorkel design, the response was overwhelming,” said Matt Stanesic, Director of Engineering at Omix-ADA. “Feedback poured in, starting an amazing interactive process between JK owners and our engineers to work together on a totally new concept. After extensive research and development, the new Modular XHD Snorkel System is finally a reality, delivering on the best of these ideas and creating a revolutionary new product.” Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel Systems are covered by an industry leading three-year limited warranty and are available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide, starting at $319.99.
