XHD Low/High Mount Snorkel System, Diesel by Rugged Ridge ('07-'18 Jeep Wrangler JK)
This XHD Low/High Mount Snorkel System was designed for use with 2.8L diesel engines. The XHD Modular Snorkel is the first snorkel engineered with the versatility of interchangeable intake heights. By relocating the vulnerable stock air intake through an internal duct system just below the windshield, the XHD Modular Snorkel helps to eliminate dust-clogged air filters and the risk of hydro-locking your engine. Jeep owners can easily swap the standard low-mount intake for a 21-inch, high-mount 'ram' intake on the Rugged Ridge XHD snorkel system for whatever off-road conditions they may face, including tackling harsh dusty trails or deep water crossings. Each snorkel is also engineered to function with a host of other Rugged Ridge products, including its Windshield Mount Light Bar, Windshield Auxiliary Light Mounting Brackets, Sherpa Roof Rack, and the new Exo-Top System. Installation requires only minor modifications to the internal fender flange and avoids any cutting or drilling to the Jeep's exterior that other snorkel kits may require. Patent No. 8,960,347.
Snorkel relocates vulnerable stock diesel 2.8L air intake location to help reduce dust clogged filters and the risk of hydro-locking. High mount raises intake for dusty areas and allows cleaner air intake. Minimal modifications to vehicle are required for mounting. Vehicle can be returned to stock configuration if desired. High mount ram intake location allows for cooler air to be delivered to intake system while allowing use of most aftermarket lower windshield light mounting tabs. XHD modular design allows for addition of other XHD snorkel components at a later date. Including high mount ram intake and high mount pre-filter intake. 5 year limited warranty. 4+ hours.
