"Off Road Garage" Snorkel??

Has anyone here bought/seen this snorkel before? FJ Cruiser 2007 2015 Exclusive Air Intake Snorkel | eBay I'm not a fan of the logo/branding on it but I definitely like the mounting location more than having to drill into the fender. Its on the expensive side at $449 plus $55 shipping but pretty sleek if you ask me..

Any thoughts?

Never seen that one before, looks interesting. I'd be more interested in how it sucks air from the cowl to the engine and how you have to reroute the antenna.

It looks to me like the part replaces the cowl and has a specially molded piece that goes through the plastic above the firewall into the engine bay. I tried to post a picture of the piece but it doesn't seem to have worked.. If you click through the pictures on the eBay page you should get to the one which shows what I'm talking about.

Pretty cool if it fits ok. Same as the River Raider in routing. Had to do hood hinge cutting to get remotely enough clearance, but maybe the larger panel replacement helps

Re: "Off Road Garage" Snorkel??

Doesn't the ARB use the OEM filter box on the 2010+?

I can see how this would fit in a 2010+ but with removal of the oem filter box.

Also installing this looks like it would prevent one from installing Izalusky/Shrokworks washer reservoir relocate kit, which is the only one that really works in a 2014. Not a huge deal, maybe.

I would be interested in a snorkel for the ultimate CAI, dust protection second.

Without being able to turn the intake around I don't know if this would achieve that?

It looks like its flow under....its held off the roof a little. I was concerned about water drainage but I think that offset helps both issues.

I like how it replaces that whole cowl under-hood panel. I just left it out on mine with the weatherstrip just laying there :/

Re: "Off Road Garage" Snorkel??

Looks like it would only work on the first-gem FJs while still retaining a filter so I guess the advertisement of being able to fit 07-14 FJs is false. Furthermore, a relocated washer reservoir/2nd battery/sPOD/whatever else that space can be used for might get in the way. This reduces the market but its a cool idea nonetheless.

Re: "Off Road Garage" Snorkel??

They talked about this on the Facebook FJ group some a few weeks back.

I rolled the dice and ordered one.

So far they seem to communicate pretty well. They did ask for under hood pictures of my FJ.

Once I get it, I will document the install.
