Actually designed along the lines of a periscope, visually it does make a statement and might actually incite more attention than a Mercedes parked next to the snorkeled 4×4.
The basic idea is to sanitize the air inducted to the engine to the highest degree, much more so than it normally would be. This would not just involve the elimination of dust and dirt; there is actually a water separation system built into the Safari Snorkel. This is particularly beneficial, whereas on a misty or rainy day though the dust probably would not be present, the Safari Snorkel will keep water droplets, or worse, from getting into the engine.
The entire snorkel system is completely sealed, providing the engine with ultimate protection during the worst driving conditions in the desert’s dust, or during crossings of bodies of water.
Topping off those core benefits of a Safari Snorkel air and water filtration system, is that, like a submarine’s periscope, it is rotatable; that means that not only is that air induction port free and clear just above the roof line, but it is also rotatable, meaning that if for example you are traveling and have a snowballs the snorkel can be rotated away from the oncoming storm, therefore preventing a choking effect of the snow building up within the snorkels intake opening.
If you want to provide your 4×4 engine with the gift of breath, for the best engine performance under virtually any weather conditions, while making the statement that your 4WD is truly hard-core, a Safari Snorkel will provide both to your vehicle unlike any other aftermarket product.
