The new Modular XHD Snorkel System from Rugged Ridge relocates the vulnerable stock air intake location to help reduce dust clogged filters and the risk of hydro-locking your engine. It is the first and currently only snorkel designed with the modular functionality of a pre-filter Low Mount. Unlike other snorkels, you don't have to give up flexibility for functionality. The Modular XHD Snorkel System comes standard with a Low Mount pre-filter. The Low Mount pre-filter relocates the intake below the windshield, drawing cool air from outside the hot engine bay. It is easily interchangeable with the High Mount #17756.07 (Sold Seperately) to give you the modular functionality best suited to your needs. The system is manufactured from durable heavy gauge plastic, mandrel bent aluminum and hi-temp silicone connecting hoses. The built-in manual drain valves channel away excess water to prevent it from entering the intake system. This snorkel installs with minor modifications to the fender, but without the major cutting and surgery that other kits require. The new lower air cleaner box installs in place of the factory unit, so you don't have to "hack and tap".

Comments about Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel Low Mount:

I love my snorkel kit. It took a little bit to put it in, but the overall experience was good. I wish it came with clips for the factory air box. One broke while switching it over to the snokel box. Other than that, I love it!!!

      Hello, yes the Rugged Ridge Snorkel Kit will work with the Smittybilt XRC Armor fenders. We have installed them together and the only slight complication is that the plastic inner fender is pushed forward slightly due to the size of the air pipe coming from the snorkel, its barely noticeable and everything still functions without issue, if you never point it out, it'll never be noticed to the naked eye. Thanks.
