You hood disappeared, most likely, because of the bow wave. The water BROKE over my windshield (coming up the hood) when I went through 37" deep. In such a case, the "seas are parting", lol and if you don't get stuck, you're cool.

Those of us who do end up sitting in it, usually do because we find our 35" tires in the 39" to 44" deep RUTS dug by the "big boys", lol!

actually the ruts would be 19 1/2 inches to 22 inches deep because half of the tire is above the axle...

your right heck what was i thinkin.

i guess i didnt know u went with me on that trip.


when the truck in front of me his 40inch tires disapear it usually means its deep enough that a stock ford rangers hood will disapear whether there is a wave or not but then agian it was prolly a wave.

Oh, I was forgetting you were stock! Well, even lifted I had the "great bow wave" (actually it scared the crap out of me as the word "hydrolock" hovered before my eyes...) in less than 40 inch water.

Man, my friend had a new Mazda 6 with a K&N filter and it sucked up a whole lotta water from just hitting a puddle in a parking lot. they pulled the heads off and turned the crankshaft and water started gushing out.

K&N's are not a good idea for offroading, from what I've read (or any gauze filter really). Foam is better because it rapidly "clogs" with any real quantity of water and shuts down the engine. I'm not sure what the new nanofiber ones will be like in heavy water barrages.

I was at a hardware store playing around today and figured out how you could run a stock airbox and snorkel, cuase it's been bothering me lately for some stupid reason...

A butterfly valve!!

You could put it on the outside of the airbox to close off the stock tubing and close it when you want to use the snorkel only... Plus, the snorkel will let in a little extra air when not in use.

Re:

I was thinking along the same lines. I wanted to set up a snorkel like the one pictured @oramagazine.com without the stupid looking base or platform it's on. The intake I've had my eye on allows enough room between the cone filter assembly and the MAF. I just need to figure out a way to install a valve. Once I found something that'd work it'd be a snap. But alas I need to find something first. Any ideas?

Yeah, I have the K and N FIPK on my truck as of now. I am trying to figure out how to do it correctly and safely for the truck... It is easy to hook up to the intake tube.. The problem is getting a filter in there somewhere!

that's the intake i want but from the pics i seen (maybe not ranger specific) there doesn't seem to be enough room between the cone assembly and the MAF. Any way you could take a pic?
