|The Safari SS1055-HF snorkel is tough and stylish and has been designed to deliver a huge volume of the coolest and cleanest air possible into the standard air cleaner assembly of the Jeep Wrangler.
Right from day-one, Safari took the decision to design a snorkel system that exceeded the air flow requirements of the gutsy 4.0Litre inline six cylinder engine.
Close attention to the internal cross sectional profile and area, air velocity and flow path through each and every point along the entire length of the snorkel system ensures that the greatest air flow is achieved.
This of course applies to components that are not visible. For example in order to achieve the optimum air flow from the snorkel into the standard air intake assembly inside the engine bay area, a special one-piece steel air cleaner housing adaptor was engineered. This adaptor is installed and positively sealed to the air cleaner assembly and forms a tough mounting point for the air intake hose to be installed to.
The specialized over-sized air intake hose that copules the snorkel body to the air cleaner assembly hose is specifically constructed to be exceptionally strong in order to eliminate any possibility of hose collapse under suction - and super tough to withstand high under-hood temperatures. The result is maximum engine performance and bullet-proof durability. The hose takes advantage of the tight spaces that would preclude the use of traditional hoses - but with the advantage that the desired internal cross sectional area is maintained at each and every point along its length.
In other words, maximum engine performance and the best possible fuel economy, but also the best structural integrity for a lifetime of hassle-free motoring over and through the world's toughest terrain.
Huge air flow is but one aspect of the ultimate in snorkel design. The Safari air ram is designed to perform two very important roles. The most obvious is to funnel cool clean air into the snorkel body - but just as importantly, the Safari air ram acts as a highly efficient water separator to remove rain water from the incoming air stream - thus ensuring safe engine operation through even the most torrential tropical storms.
In addition, the detachable Safari air ram can be rotated to any position. This means great peace of mind for those who plan to travel in cold or high altitude conditions where heavy snow falls are anticipated.
By rotating the air ram to face away from the prevailing wind/direction of motion, the air ram delivers additional protection from the choking effects of snow build-up inside the air intake.
The Safari Snorkel body is manufactured to the highest standards in durable, UV stable, cross linked polyethylene material. In addition, the substantial material wall thickness delivers huge physical strength to ensure that the snorkel breezes through the toughest off-road conditions on the planet.
The Safari Snorkel system is supplied as a complete and comprehensive system that includes every nut, bolt and bracket required for installation - right from robust zero-corrosion stainless steel studs, self-locking nyloc nuts and large diameter anodized body washers through to the tough plastic A-pillar inserts.
