Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel Kit - 17756.21


  • Rugged Ridge | Part Number: RUG17756.21

Dusty Trails Rides and Deep Water Fordings. Anyone who takes their rig off-road is likely to encounter these conditions. 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 also the first snorkel designed with the modular functionality of a Pre-filter Low Mount and Ram High Mount air intake design. Unlike other snorkels, you don't have to give up flexibility for functionality. Not only did we engineer our snorkel to allow the windshield to fold and doors to be removed, we built it for use with our dual battery tray, windshield light bar and windshield light mounting tabs. Because what good is having a snorkel to cross the river, if you have to leave your lights and the dual battery (to power your winch) on the other side? Note: Windshield light mounting tabs only compatible with low mount. The Modular XHD Snorkel System comes standard with the Pre-filter Low Mount. The Pre-filter Low Mount relocates the air intake to just below the windshield and draws cool air from outside the hot engine compartment. The optional Ram High Mount design allows the air intake to be extended up an additional 21 inch to the top of the windshield. The two air intake mounts are easily interchangeable to give you the modular functionality best suited to your needs. The system is manufactured from premium thermoformed plastic, mandrel bent aluminum and hi-temp silicone connection hoses. Built in manual drain valves channel away excess water to prevent it from entering the intake system. It installs with minor modification 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. Just attached the factory upper air box, chose from the Pre-filter Low Mount or High Mount design and go! Patents D687,071 and D687,072, and 8,960,347

Hi, I am planning on buying this snorkel. This means my secondary lights will no longer fit. What kind of supports or lights do I need to buy so they fit once the snorkel is installed?

Hello, With this snorkel the only option you can use is a hood light mount or move the lights to above the windshield frame. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask, Thank you.
