ARB’s line of Safari Snorkels are trail proven and trusted by adventurers worldwide.

Safari Snorkels
Back in the ’80s, Safari invented the concept of the snorkel as a custom-molded, vehicle-specific, carefully engineered product. The fitment of a well-designed and strongly constructed snorkel protects your engine from dust while traveling along dry dirt roads. A snorkel repositions the air intake to a much higher and cleaner location to greatly reduce the amount of dust passing through to your airbox and filter. Safari snorkels utilize a UV-stable polyethylene body, which ensures a strong and robust fitting to the outside of your vehicle. High-grade stainless steel and plated hardware for corrosion resistance is included.
Applications: Wide variety available
MSRP: Varies
