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".
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!!!
I have this low mount snorkel. Can you tell me what A-pillar light mounts will work with it? This is for a 2008 JK Unlimited

Hello Jeep Geek, the Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel Low Mount part# RUG17756.06 will work with any of the pillar/ windshield brackets and lights. The snorkel sits low enough to clear the brackets. Thank you for your question.
