Going Off-Road Snorkeling with your Jeep, well sort of.



If you are like a lot of people who have just bought their first Jeep Wrangler and dreamt about days spent out in the middle of nowhere jumps bumps you threw caution to the wind and went places without looking to see what is there. Then you found yourself stalled out in a big pit of water and wished that you had one of those Safari Snorkel for Jeep Wrangler YJ 1987-95 by ARB that your other Jeep buddies told you they bought from Xtremeterrain.com.


A snorkel will move your air intakes from a low point on the engine and move it up and out into clean air where it will always be able to safely provide intake even in extreme situations. This means that you can leap before you look without worrying about putting the air intake underwater and stalling and or ruining the engine.

The Safari Snorkel for Jeep Wrangler YJ 1987-95 by ARB is great because it comes made in materials that will withstand the harsh UV rays of the sun. They are constructed of stainless steel to keep as much water and dust out as possible. And it also has a cool system that evacuates any rain water or built up moisture without fear of it getting into the engine. This helps to keep it clean and also keeps any built up gunk from making its way back into the engine.

Anyone who buys a Wrangler and likes to take it to parts unknown needs one of these air intake snorkels. The price is usually around 400 bucks which is much cheaper than having to call a tow company to tow you from the depths of a mudding trip or also much cheaper than having to replace the engine all together.

It also looks kind of cool and helps separate the roadie Wranglers from the kind that people like you drive. The snorkel sits right behind the passenger side wheel well and runs along the front window which means that it won’t cause any extra blind spots either.

  1. I didn’t think the snorkel was available until the 90’s models and I have an 88. Guess that’s what I get for thinking instead of checking. I’ve already had to have the engine rebuilt because of water damage so the snorkel could already have paid for itself had it been in place. I really appreciate all you put out for your readers. It’s like an on-going class in how to take care of and enjoy your Jeep to the fullest.

  2. Installing a Safari Snorkel has made a big difference in the performance of my Jeep when I’m crossing streams and playing in the mud. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.

  3. How come I’ve never heard of this before? This is soooo me! I’m always getting flooded and I can’t seem to resist the call of the water. Oh, I enjoy the rocks, hills, and mud, but the water I can’t get enough of. I’m going to get one of these very soon. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
