AEV Snorkel in Vancouver?

Does anyone in the Vancouver area have an AEV snorkel on their JKU? I'm thinking of pulling the trigger and would love to see one in person first.

I know there's at least one in the city cause my buddy's seen you before, I think you have a silver Ruby.

Thanks.

It's a great snorkel...put it on my last Jeep and going to put one on this Jeep once I moved back to mainland US. I would recommend going with the pre-filter (but make sure you get the clamp really tight as some have had the pre-filter blow off the top at high speeds. I never had that issue but occasionally would have to re-tighten it. The other option is to use a long bolt through the snorkel and pre-filter mounting points to prevent any potential slipping or knocking when going through off-road areas.

Look at JKO member BLUERUBI for pictures.....I would paint the pre-filter though. Got a lot of jokes about it looking like a popcorn machine!

Yeah I hear ya....easier to make the decision after seeing it first. I would offer advice to either get their Heat Reduction Hood (already made for the Snorkel and is awesome) or have a skill saw with carbide blade to cut the hood. I used a cutting wheel and it sucked but worked.

There are a few guys out here in the Langley area with the snorkel. I am pretty sure the National 4wd in Langley was a few in stock.

Then you can actually handle the thing and not have to order it!

There are a few guys on bcjeepclub that have them.

I have been trying to get them to join this site but no luck so far!
A dude with the screen name GeeBee has one installed I believe.
