The cowl has vents on either end of it that drain the water. As long as your snorkel end going into the cowl box is setup correctly, there's nothing to worry about. I've taken my truck into crap 95% of the members on this board wouldn't even consider and that snorkel never let a drop of water into my intake box.
Just the water breaks over the hood...not driving through water thats up to my hood. I would probably get stuck in that.

During one of the past rainstorms I went out to a campsite by okechobee and we were running down a couple trails with this other jeep (just me and him) and he offered any help to pull me out if I needed it, so I just took it to the max. I burried her several times, and I broke water over the hood, it was awesome, but my filter got wet...I dunno, I want to do something like this, but I don't want to drill into my cowl. I'd almost rather have it a different way, but there isn't many choices!!!

Yeah itz a u-pull-it. Go find what you want then drag Fonze out there and he will tell you how much. Pull it off and pay at the office. Last time I was there I know I saw at least two airboxes. They have a bunch of older rangers there but not too many new ones. I am always up for a trip there. I will let you know when I will be home next but in the meantime if you want directions give me a call. They are also in the southern chester county phone book.

Just to give you an idea John I paid 50 for a factory hitch, 20 for all my OHC mod, 20 for my light bar with 2 KCs, and I think 2 or 3 for my extra foglight switch. Wow I got off topic....but at least it was good info.

It will be all hidden under the hood and in the cowl. You can't see it from the out side. Look at page 3 or 4 of the snorkel sticky and you will see pics of the one Travis had.

Cool, Luke, thanks.

I remember a snorkel topic where Gil went on and on about how snorkels aren't necessary, but then he never wheeled Wharton, lol. And we now have two guys in the local group who have hydro-locked bad enough to have to replace their engines (Mike and Jay).

This is a good idea for sure. My airbox modifications have kept me out of trouble so far, but one of these days I'm going to hit something deeper and all bets are off...

I know what you mean John. I see you building one that extends to the roofline since you are 2wd and have to hit stuff hard. I feel I will be ok with it just in the cowl cuz I can be a lil more gentle about the wave I make since I got 4wd but thats not gonna matter much either in a few months when you got some big axles under there.
