Took the "Wrangler" sticker off the sides. I'm worried nobody will know what it is now ...
Let us know if you start getting invited to Jeep Liberty events. :giggle:

I like them so far...it’s only been a couple hours. Needed them since, for some reason, my little girls like to stand on the sill and slide off. Wanted a little more protection from their shoes. I got these because the Mopar ones didn’t provide the coverage I wanted.
My boys do the same thing! That's how I lost one.. LOL

Guessing it’s not compatible with the Blind Spot models ?
I would assume not, it does not have the protruding portion that is required for the BSM.

Looks awesome, did a great job.

Honest question here, so please dont beat me up on it.

What benefit does that location have over a "regular" CIA that lies under the hood? That one is much more exposed to the element(snow,rain,dust) than one under the hood.

A snorkel where the inlet is at(or above) the top of the windshield does add some benefit for cleaner/cooler air. And the inlet faces foward allowing direct flow of air intake.

Just not getting the inlet being located at the A-pillar location

Like I said honest question truly curious

The term benefit is up for debate but I went with the river raider because I am an insurance adjuster and I have seen hundreds of water into the engine via under the hood CAI.
Lower induction point and even fender splash will funnel not only air but water.
The RR is a air tight system and I would have to have water over the hood before water would enter the system, not a huge fan of a tall snorkel for me it was the best of both worlds

Hopefully you never have water over the hood! However, water in your intake would be the least of your problems at that point

Actually I get water on my hood all the time when crossing water. You don’t have to be in water as deep as the intake is tall to get into trouble. I’ve lost power twice due to water splashing into the factory intake. Yes I was going too fast because it’s fun, but that’s not really the point. Lol.

I’ve been waiting on a better snorkel option for months. slim Pickens

One other thing that I haven't seen mentioned yet is that this is a high pressure area when driving down the road, so it could end up with a slight "cowl induction" benefit.

I am willing to try anything to help prevent broken windshields. Let us know if you think it helps.

The way New Bern has had to deal with high water the last couple of years ,it appears a smart move.

it seems to help some, but not completely, bugs large and small still make it through to the windshield.
