Smile Rugged Ridge JK Shots with snorkels

I was walking past the Westin in Las Vegas tonight and parked outside was a couple of JK's Rugged Ridge items both fitted with there snorkels. It was dusk and I had to use my cell so sorry for the quality.





I will be posting more photos from the SEMA show on my Facebook Page and my website

That doesn't look too bad. Still haven't seen one in person.

If they are parked up there tomorrow I will take my camera and get some better shots, also the 2 door had the new aluminium front bumper fitted.

It looks white to me and they look like RR D-Window Steel wheels painted in the center to match the Jeep.

Thanks for the information!!!! I like them but would prefer aluminum considering my JK spends a considerable amount of time at the beach and marina.

One thing I just noticed with that 2 door JK is the half doors. Those are Rugged Ridge half doors (notice the TJ style handles) with door tops. Currently the tops have not been available as far as I can tell.

Rugged Ridge has shown the JK community this snorkel for a while. Looks like a couple of their company "show off our parts" JK's. Displaying your parts on cars/trucks running around Las Vegas for SEMA is a smart marketing plan. I would probably do the same in Las Vegas for SEMA.

The Project is moving forward.

RR snorkel

You guys need to redesign the upper portion so you can mount it with lights on the windshield bracket. That's how a majority of Jeeps are set up. I would of made a prefilter attachment like the Military hummers use if you did not want the upper half. You gotta a pic with it mounted with your windshield light brackets? I almost bought a pair but the looked pretty cheesy. You guys might want to let guys that work for the company have some input. I work for Trans American your parent company and would of loved to have some input on this project. I am not an engineer but I am a hard core off-roader!

That one looks a little better than the pics I saw posted on one here on the forum. It looks like they have no gaps anywhere on theirs.

Has anyone noticed an increase in your MPG after the snorkel has been installed?
