I realise that snorkels have probably been done to death but, since I have just come to the civilian world of 4wd's I was chasing a snorkel for my WJ Jeep, nobody makes them as I have been told but I have seen a WJ fitted with one and wondered what they used, any Ideas out there????
I dont want to drown the engine as I nearly did on Bribie beach recently, dont ask !!
WJ Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7 V8 has the intake behind the headlight and with standard height as yet.

You ask the local 4x4 store like ARB or TJM about it. I know they do make up snorkels using Stainless steel pipes and rubber jointers which look good. Donaldson makes the jointers and can be purchased from their site or from a supplier.

No , they claim to have a prototype but have ben saying that for over 12 mths,
thanks. I was emailing Airtech who sent me a pic of their prototype but when I queried why it was on the wrong side for a 4.7 and why it was so skinny as to strangle the motor they stopped talking to me ???

Well it sounds like your only option is to make your own. Plenty have done this using stainless steel bent up by a muffler shop or even lenghths of PVC. Maybe you could try a searching on a few of the US Jeep forums to find some examples.

Yes you can buy the Donaldson air rams etc from a good Truck parts store but I don't think they are cheap. Places like TJM (and maybe some independednt stores) would be into this custom made stuff.

Just remembered somebody had just emailed me a pic of a home made snorkel. This will give you an idea of what can be done.
