Inspired by heavy duty industrial and military applications around the world, AEV’s JL Wrangler/Gladiator Snorkel Kit improves engine performance by drawing in the cleanest, coolest air charge possible, even in the worst conditions. If you are serious about off-road adventure, the AEV Snorkel is one of the most important modifications you can make.
These Snorkel Kits are extensively tested in both real-world and controlled environments, and unlike other manufacturers, AEV Snorkels are manufactured in the USA out of a high quality, cross-linked polyethylene. Lightweight and extremely strong, this material offers the best combination of strength, UV-resistance, and long-term durability. This material also has exceptional thermal stability in extreme hot/cold temperatures.
The AEV Snorkel for the 2.0L Turbo, 2.0L 4xe, 3.6L Gas, and 2.2L CRD mounts on the right-hand side of the vehicle, whereas the 3.0L EcoDiesel Snorkel mounts on the left-hand side of the vehicle. An optional A-Pillar Mounting Bracket is also available for customers who prefer having the option to fold down the windshield on their Wrangler or Gladiator (excludes 3.0L EcoDiesel). This bracket mounts to the A-Pillar behind the windshield frame, leaving it free to move up and down independently from the Snorkel. AEV recommends installing the Snorkel using the standard mounting bracket included with this kit. This mounting configuration will be the strongest and most durable option for off-road use.
All Snorkel kits include a standard Air Ram inlet. Customers who live or travel in severe environments (high dust, sand, or silt) should consider adding the optional, self-cleaning Sy-Klone Pre-Filter.
The JL Wrangler/Gladiator Snorkel Kits are ordered according to your engine and OE fender flare style – which is either a “high” or “low” style fender flare. In North America for example, Rubicon models have a “high” fender flare option that allows for more tire clearance. They may look similar, but the “high” fender flare sits about an inch higher and is an inch wider than the standard or “low” fender flare. Export models may vary, depending on the destination country. Please refer to the graphic if you are unsure what style fender flare you have. The EcoDiesel Snorkel is only available for the high flare option.
EcoDiesel owners: Jeep has issued TSB 18-003-23. AEV recommends this TSB be performed before the installation of AEV snorkel system.
