The Land Rover brand name is renowned in the 4WD industry and the Discovery 2 was an impressive car for its time. Featuring creature comforts like rear adjustable air suspension and traction control that were unheard of at the time. The Discovery 2 also had impressive 4WD capabilites with great approach and departure angles and a solid low range. With lots of varieties produced over its run the Sherpa 4x4 Snorkel will suit them all and improve the performance and economy.
Air Ram Head
Sherpa 4x4 utilises a 2 piece injection moulded air ram head. A simple, yet effective 4 vane drain system prevents water entering the vehicles intake for added security. Finishing off the snorkel head is a stylish and durable, laser cut, 316 stainless steel grill. Attached to the main snorkel body using a 316 stainless screw clamp allowing the snorkel head to be easily rotated to face any angle. This is useful in conditions such as snow, sandy, muddy and dusty environments, and provides a key advantage over modern integrated snorkel heads. While the standard snorkel kits come supplied with a stainless intake grill, Sherpa 4x4 can also supply grills with a tough powder coat finish in the colours listed above.
Constructed as a single piece LLDPE rotomoulded snorkel body. Such a production process is designed to give Sherpa 4x4 snorkels the highest integrity and uniformity. Internal shaping and pipe diameters are developed to allow increased, unrestricted and excess air flow to your engine. Avoiding circular delivery pipes prevents inconsistencies in cross sectional airflow, regions of low pressure and whirl pooling as seen with many snorkels.
Sherpa 4x4 specifies only the highest grades of LLDPE plastics for the construction of our snorkels. Being an Australian business we understand that our customers 4WDs are exposed to some of the harshest conditions in the world. All plastics used are seeded for UV and colour stabilisation. Shorter chain branching and a low deviation in molecular weight distribution allows for good shear resistance, high impact and puncture resistance as well as environmental stress cracking resistance. These features along with just enough flexibility and polymer extension means you have one tough snorkel that can handle outback conditions as well as contend with vibrations and flexes in your four wheel drive.
Sherpa 4x4 stands by the quality of our products and all snorkels come with a peace of mind 3 year warranty. However, independent plastic testing and weathering results show that these snorkels and components will be functioning on your vehicle for decades.
