Innovative Modular Design Now Available for 3.6L V6 Equipped 2012-2013 Jeep Wrangler JK
Suwanee, Ga. (October 30, 2012) – Following the overwhelming feedback from Jeep® owners online and the success of theRugged Ridge® Modular XHD Snorkel System for 2007-2011 Jeep Wrangler JK 3.8L V6, Omix-ADA®, today announced the availability of its new, patent pending Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel System for two and four-door Jeep Wrangler JK models from 2012-2013 equipped with the 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine.
The new Modular XHD Snorkel System is available in easily interchangeable high and lowmounts, and relocates the vulnerable stock air intake through an internal duct system justbelow the windshield. This new design provides optimum performance and protection aswell as a great look over existing, more conspicuous options. Installation requires onlyminor modifications to the internal fender flange and avoids the major cutting that other kitsmay require.
Featuring the option of a high-mount ‘ram’ design or the standard low- mount intake, JK ownerscan easily customize the installation and functionality of their new Rugged Ridge snorkelsystem to best suit the needs and off-road conditions they may face, including tackling harshdusty trails or deep water fordings.
The standard Modular XHD Snorkel System comes with a low- mount intake that is locatedaway from the front of the vehicle, a safer position that prevents dangerous exposure to water during fording of rivers and streams. An optional high-mount ‘ram’ accessory movesthe air intake up an additional 21-inches to the top of the windshield for deeper water crossing.The new design also benefits from the ability to draw cool air from outside the hot engine bay where the factory air box
Rugged Ridge’s snorkel is manufactured from durable heavy gauge plastic, mandrel bent aluminum and high temperature silicone connecting hoses. A built-in valve allows owners to clean and drain a catch basin, preventing water from entering the intake system while out on the trail. Because this system retains the use of factory style air filters, it is not compatible withother aftermarket cold air intake kits and snorkels.
“When JK owners were asked online what they would like in a snorkel design, the response was overwhelming,” said Patrick Bennett, Product Development Manager at Omix-ADA. “Feedback poured in, starting an amazing interactiveprocess between JK owners and our engineers to work together on a totally newconcept. After extensive research and development, the new Modular XHD SnorkelSystem is finally a reality, delivering on the best of these ideas and creating arevolutionary new product.”
