New snorkel for WK.
 
Just got emailed from the manufacturer that he has released the WH/WK diesel snorkel. Think petrol is still on the cards as he released the diesel and petrol WJ ones a couple of weeks ago.
I get the updates on the Jeep ones as helped design and wrote the fitting instructions for the petrol and diesel XJ snorkels.

Edit Never mind. Honestly, i think it looks terrible. I thought it would look more like th XK commander model. That airflow WK/WH Snorkel is fugly.

wk/wh is too roundy to have a snorkel look good

it might work perfectly but when you are not 'wheeling' there is no way to hide that thing. i think a REMOVABLE thing might make sense.

I really think the snorkel on the XJ and TJ and XK and JK looks great but that thing is in need of some re working.

I think I'd rather risk a hydro lock than tool around with that stupid thing on the front of my Jeep.

Can't say I am a fan of they way it looks either. Could have bended at least the last part above the wheel arch better!

seems to me a better design would be to run it under the hood and then to come out near the wiper cowl/windshield

I was thinking just that. But point of the snorkel is to be able to keep the intake high and dry. That area would suck in a bunch of water if you managed to get the hood under a wave/wake.
