Not a Cherokee application, but a good place to start getting an idea as to how it's done.

This one's good.

Here's mine I used 3' black abs pipe, (2) 3' abs 45 degrees, and (1) 3' abs 90 degree street elbow I think is what it was called had a female on one end, male on other end, as for piecing it together. I then used a 2' or 2.5' electrical junction box were it goes through the fender then back to a 3' flex tube from pepboys to run to stock airbox. With the stock air box I sealed all existing holes and added a 3' connector for flex pipe to attach to. Also got from pepboys. And at top of snorkel I used a 4' dryer vent I think is the size to keep out the rain while driving. All the pipe from lowes and other stuff from pepboys I think I have about $75.00 in it. I used (2) 3' pipe hangers to attach it on fender and a-pillar. Also from lowes. It works great, does its job and I saved a whole lot of money. I think I have some more pictures in my album should be one in there also of were it attached to the stock air box.

aquickmopar That looks great. I almost thought it was one made by a manufacturer.

Hey thanx. No I just searched alot of threads to get an idea. And then just came up with my own design. All and all I thought it turned out pretty good and was happy with the end result. Thanx though glad you like it.

Not a fan of how PVC looks. I have used flex hose and ran it trough the fire wall above the fuse box. Had a cone at the end with a splash shield. It sounded sweet and worked real well. When I do it agean I will make one out of all steel and put it out side. Flat steel and tubing

any reason why you would need one running all the way to the roof?

I'd say 90% of the applications where a snorkel would be needed can be satisfied by a cowl snorkel like the one I'm running:

i could not ever do something like this on something I'm actually seen in driving down the road.

for an offroad only rig, sure...but it's just too redneck for me.

Lol I'm assuming your driving around in a lifted Cherokee an your worried about looking redneck? Lmao if mine didn't look redneck I'd be pissed. Maybe it's cuz I'm from Mississippi an redneck hillbilly is the way most people are. If u don't wanna look like a redneck buy a Beamer an call it a day
