I have the airaid in my 2012 JKU. Best bolt on cai I have ever had. Nice boost in power, drop in fuel economy and awesome sound.

Can anyone confirm this is the case? I've spoken to the local ARB outlet, who was very unsure of how it fitted up.

The material Safari use to construct their snorkels and pipework will need more than a stick or stone to violate it. They are a very high quality bit of kit and you'll need a fairly serious incident to cause a problem.

But running the duct inside the wheel arch is just plain nuts. That's a major clearance issue for those wanting to run slightly oversized tyres on stock rims or even many aftermarket rims.

Go the newer generation for Pentastar AEV snorkel for sure.

I've had Safari Snorkels fitted to my 4bys for probably 20+ years now, and can attest to their quality in material, fit and finish, never once having an issue with them once fitted.

But due to this routing of the Safari snorkel in the wheel arch of the JK, I think I'll be going with the AEV one this time round.

We've fitted quite a few AEV, ARB Safari and other snorkels to JK's before. This is hard to not sound biased but the AEV one (especially the new 2nd Gen version) is the winner hands down. Its huge 4" inlet is much less restrictive than the version it replaced and follows the clean lines of the JK's tapered front end. There's too much air turbulence with the Safari and other imo.
We've got over 40 of the new 2nd Gen AEV Snorks to suit Penta coming in May and 20 of the 2nd Gen ones coming for 3.8 & 2.8 !

I've got a CRD not a pentastar but if I were to get another snorkel it'd be the AEV. I got the Safari fitted by the dealer when I bought it 3 year ago but the way it runs up through the engine bay is so convoluted. Congrats to them for actually managing to find a twisted route up through the engine bay but I still have issues with it hitting the steering arm. It used to happen all the time until I got the dealer to look at it again and they basically strapped it up with a zip tie to keep it off the steering arm. That worked for a while but I noticed after going off road last weekend I have a clean stripe around the steering arm again from where it's rubbed on the snorkel. I guess it must happen when flexing up off road as that must push the steering arm over at a different angle. I'd take the damn thing out if it didn't leave me with hole in the front fender.
