Re: Snorkel on CJ7
well since the original question had something to do with a snorkel on a cj-7 lets see... no, don't believe that i have seen any companies that make one, but who would want to spend that kind of money on something you could put together yourself for a few bucks right?
anyway, if you are running the world famous carter bbd then you should know that it just so happens that you can take an intake tube (from throttle body to air box) from a 2000 tj 4.0L and it will fit nicely on top of your carb. if you pull the air cleaner hoop (the thing with the screw for the air cleaner) off of the carb and cut about 1/2 inch off of the bottom of the tube it fits perfectly under the hood and mates directly to the carb (just make sure you leave the hose clamp on and tighten it really well). from there you can do all sorts of things for a snorkel. you can mount the tj air box and run a snorkel out from that, or you can just pipe the intake all tha way out and run a cone filter on the end, or you can run it through the firewall and have it draw from inside the jeep. its all what you feel like doing, but alas, i do not believe that anyone makes a kit. hope this helps.
