Snorkel Options

So what are my snorkel options for a JK? What manufacturers make them and are there any differences from one to the next other than appearance? Any advantages/disadvantages to the different exit points? Do they all have spots for the axle & tranny breathers too or will I need to drill them?

Pics would be nice too!

the search button is right---------------------------------------------------------------------------^^^^^^ there

but to answer your question the 2 main snorkel providers are AEV and river raider. with the river raider you cant run a dual batt setup. and neither have spots for breather lines. but not that hard to add. HTH

Yeah, that's the one I liked, the River Raider one. Looks nice!

Side question though, how hard is it to keep that matte finish clean on your Jeep? Is that paint or Vinyl?

I like my AEV, pretty easy install after the first cut. As for breather tubes, river raider sells the smilin bobs breather hose extension kit that cuts into your existing engine breather tube to your factory air box.http://riverraider.biz/index.php?mai...jb3njs1b3gm5a3

The river raider is very nice.
I Run the AEV and really like it. Its ABS and bombproof.

Riverraider is aluminum.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Hate to pick on you, but THATS precisely why I like my ABS AEV
