Interested in fitting a snorkel to the 99 SE/TD to keep the filter cleaner on bush trips - (that wheel well entry point is a bummer).... might come in handy for water crossings too ! Would appreciate feedback from any Jack owners with snorkels - brand, supplier/fitters, performance, noise/vibration etc.

Banjo- I have had one fitted to my 99 TD Jackaroo manual, and to date no increase in fuel consumption or performance - Have been told that with performance filters can see improvement but still under warranty so not interested yet. As for noise, no problem inside the cabin with passenger side window up, a bit throaty at low speeds (ie minimal wind noise) but I like that. Yes, I get vibrations, noticed it straight away. Fixed it with 2xhiclones, seemed to move the air in a different way, but did not help economy or performance after extensive testing so I got my money back. Unfortunately, you will have to put up with vibrations at about 2500 - 2700 rpm but only minor and only localised to the corner of the vehicle the snorkel is mounted on. Not major and easy to get used to.

By the way, got a Safari with air ram on top. About $650 from O.L.

Hope this helps

Hi Banjo, only had my 2000 TD jack for four months,snorkle already fitted by Holden. Done 12000 k's with vibrations hardly noticable,but also have weather shields on both doors which make a little noise also.

Interesting Q....I have little to do with GMH (another story)....have not seen any static Jack snorkels yet to inspect .....do Holden use a brand and possibly have it fitted by a mobile supplier ?

G'day Banjo ... The ones I have seen fitted by Holden dealers look like the Safari units.

Sorry Banjo for late reply been working to many hours.

Snorkle is identical to Safari units, just has Jackaroo written on it. Original owner had it fitted by holden from new.

I have an Airtec snorkel fitted to my T/D 99 SE , no problems and paid $500 fitted . By the way it is a BIG job to do just ask any installer. Would recommend this type .

Good luck.
