    VIDEO : RUGGED RIDGE AmFib SNORKEL Install - Jeep JL Wrangler / JT Gladiator Truck

    As any self-respecting overlander knows, you need a snorkel to complete a good overland build and when Rugged Ridge first debuted their AmFib Snorkel for the Jeep JL Wrangler and JT Gladiator Truck at the 2018 SEMA Show, everyone and their mother wanted to get their hands on one. Why you might ask? Well, unlike most snorkel kits, the AmFib requires no cutting of the hood or of any body panel for that matter and it requires very little modification to get it installed. Also, Rugged Ridge designed the AmFib to be installed in two different configurations, as a Low Mount cowl intake that looks totally factory and as a High Mount intake that gives it a traditional snorkel look that most people are familiar with. In this video, you'll see just how quick and easy it is to get one on your JL Wrangler or JT Gladiator.

    Oh, and because I know it's coming, yes, I know what the 3rd rubber fitting under the air box is for. I just had a brain fart

    Looks like a fairly easy install. Good thing you got it done before the weather moves in. Looks like you guys will be getting some snow.

    Oh, that’s the most I’ve heard you say nipple in one sitting.

    Great video coverage of all the steps. I don't see our JT leaving pavement, but if we get a JL, we may have to install one of these to tackle the Colorado puddles

    LOL!!

    Yeah, needed to get this one done before the big storm this week. Hell, it was still cold out though but not as cold as it's gonna get

    Pretty solid kit. The low mount looks really good. The extension is cool too... if you need it...

    Speaking of extension.... have you considered:

    I have the rugged ridge snorkel on my Jk… I love it for 2 reasons... I can hit puddles fast without worry when they surprise me, and in high dust driving it seems like the higher air intake helps the filter to not get so much dust! Ok maybe there is a third... when little kids come ask me at the gas station if I can drive underwater...

    Looks like a well thought out product!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
