Safari Snorkel Fits 5.9L, 5.2L and 4.0L ZJ Grand Cherokee Models The Safari snorkel is tough and stylish and has been designed to deliver a huge volume of the coolest and cleanest air possible into the stock air cleaner assembly of the 4.0L, 5.2L , and 5.9L models of Jeep Grand Cherokee. (the ’93-’95 4.0L requires model requires a relocation of the ABS module and additional installation steps.)
Right from day one, Safari took the decision to design a snorkel system that exceeded the air flow requirements of the stock engine configuration and delivered the greatest engine protection possible at the same time.
Close attention to the internal cross sectional profile, 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.
In order to achieve the optimum air flow within the engine bay area of the Grand Cherokee, a precision molded duct as well as a specialized cast alloy mounting duct was engineered to deliver a huge shot of fresh air directly into the air cleaner assembly. These tough ducts closely couple the snorkel body to the standard air intake assembly and take advantage of the tight spaces that would preclude the use of traditional hoses – but with the advantage that the internal cross sectional profile of this duct can be altered while maintaining the desired cross sectional area 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. A bonus is that the use of this special duct and hose delivers the maximum convenience for those who wish to install additional under-hood accessories
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 nylock nuts and large diameter anodized body washers through to the tough plastic A-pillar inserts.
An accurately marked template is also provided to ensure that the installation of the snorkel body to panel work is as precise as possible and to eliminate any guess work where holes need to be drilled.
Breathe Easy – The genuine Safari Snorkel is positively sealed and delivers a continuous and cooler supply of air for the best engine protection on the planet.
