    That was my original intent, to just get the intake away from the noise. It works quite well at the air intake cover. When I came across the Jeep snorkel, I could not resist...

    I would not disagree with this assessment of the snorkel part of this install. The air intake cover should be high enough and far away enough from the nose to resolve most water traps. Truth is all a snorkel does in water is give piece of mind to prevent water lock of the engine, which is a big deal. The engine is done if water gets in there. Your point though is the truck is dead if you get in that deep and I would agree. For cleaner air, I think the snorkel works well especially with a working pre cleaner. Note I said working pre cleaner, since on the I5 engine, the correct for snorkel 3 inch size does not kick in until around 2,500 rpm. So there is no pre cleaning untill the higher rpm range. The size below (2 inch) tops out at 2,500 rpm. The I5 runs from 2 cfm to 80 max cfm 50 cfm is at around 2,500 rpm on the I5.

    Glade to hear it worked! That must have been some deep water, your truck sit high.

    I agree with 58Bisc. I am thinking of doing this mod and its for 2 reasons. 1) a peace of mind. Lets say I do cross something that is very deep I would hope to deal with no issues but Id rather deal with replacing electrical issues instead of dealing with electrical issues AND rebuilding or replacing the motor due to hydrolock. Reason 2) is for cooler air. The air coming in through the fender is probably warmer then up top away from a hot engine.

    unlessed I missed it. how are you sealing up the stock "intake box thingy"? There are so many ways water can get into that area since its just held on bu push clips. I must be missing something. You gotta be sealing that thing up some how.

    The top section comes with a rubber seal but I used silicon to assist!! The actual cover I cut just big enough to slide my 3" pipe in and used the silicone to seal!!! Worked really well!!
    Once u have it in place u tighten the clamp to your rubber 45 underneath the fender.. (that's the hardest part)

    I never considered the snorkel a solution for underwater operation just for accidental temporary submersion while moving thru some water. Stopping would be a bad thing but could happen. Fuse box is my first concern.
    The OEM filter box is fairly good. It's not sealed and could use a gasket.
    Another old school prevention is to place a tarp across the grill so water coming in is not sprayed around by the fan as easily.
    Some people seem to have luck with just the stock setup! Not me, no way on purpose. Notice that I am the one behind the camera.
    These are fun to bring up when the discussion renews.

    Silicone can be used on the box because if u ever have to break the seal u just scrap it off and redu it.. Some people use water resistant greece like vasoline to repel water!!
