cold air intake vs snorkel

I'm thinking about putting either a cold air intake or a snorkel on my Jeep. What do you guys think is better. But I'm leaning more towards the cold air intake. Please help me out in my decision.

Re: cold air intake vs snorkel

intake for regular driving/ I would only do a snorkel if I was going to do serious mudding off road stuff. That is just me.

Roll with CAI unless you plan on fording rivers, streams, etc. a lot.

Re: cold air intake vs snorkel

Higher priced is K&N but you can get cheaper ones like Spectre, AirRaid, Volant and Injen. Prices range from $85 - $300 on Carid.com and other sites.
