Anyone else notice the driver-side air intake on the 3.0? If snorkel/raised air intake manufacturers wanted to avoid redesigning exterior plumbing for the 3.0, routing the internal plumbing to the passenger side looks like a near impossibility with a number of items in the way. Likely to delay availability of these mods for quite some time regardless of solution.

I put my faith into the aftermarket to figure it out.

They may just make a driver side snorkel like Nissan SUVs/trucks, Jeep XJ cherokee and some Defenders use. I doubt it’s too distracting. It could actually be a cool unique look for the diesels!

That's probably the easiest thing for aftermarket manufacturers to do, honestly. I had a good feeling there would be delay in aftermarket intakes regardless since this is a new engine for the platform.
