Any news on this? Finally got my diesel now I'm ready for a snorkel :clap:
Can't find one for the ecodiesel yet. I would be shocked if there is 500 Ecodiesels being built this year. So I am not sure how motivated the manufacturers are jumping to developing a produce as of yet. They may be waiting until the diesel comes out for the Gladiator before they put a lot of effort into the after market of something that requires a new design. That is my guess.

Yea I was hoping for this year with that rugged ridge cowl-integrated snorkel but they’re going to need to solve the issue with the plumbing obstructing the filler caps at the back of the driver-side engine bay and they have a tiny market as you say...with probably zero R&D access to a 3.0.

I might consider one but it would have to be engineered super well

Honestly, I’d just be happy with a mopar unit.
AEV might do one, but I’ll be dead before it’s released.

If AEV does one it won't be available for at least 2 years. They can't get anything to market fast and sure don't do a great job in guessing release dates...one thing for sure...they will miss the first couple of they even give an estimate.

They can’t even get anything to market slow. Who brings the same bumpers to SEMA for three straight years without releasing them? Especially when the rear is the same steel and an almost identical design to the JK variant...

I had the Rugged Ridge on my 07 JKULR.
That’s what I will be buying again once it becomes available.
Maybe I can get on the prototype list again :)

When the 3.0L V-6 EcoDiesel was released, we learned that - unlike its 3.6L V6 Pentastar and 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder brethren - its air filter box is on the left-hand side of the engine bay. That means that current snorkel offerings for the gassers won't fit the diesel.

For those of you who own or intend to purchase the EcoDiesel, would you buy a snorkel as well? If so, which of the snorkel systems currently offered would you like to see engineered for the diesel?

There are plenty of other threads on this forum that deliberate the pros and cons between diesels and gassers, and plenty of discussions on the pros and cons of snorkels as well. Let's leave those discussions to those threads. My intent in creating this thread is to canvass the diesel owners (or prospects) to get a sense of how many would want snorkel systems for their rigs.
Thanks for this information. It is useful to know which gas mods won't work on the diesel.
