I followed a signature link here and it is intresting reading .

You got me thinking with this write up . I understand the concept and all, but my real question is. Do you guys actually get in water that deep? If so what do you do about the dash i.e., radio, gauges, controls, and not mention, driver and passengers? Do you have the tub all sealed up or just try to go through as fast as you can before the tub floods?
Just curious in case I ever get to much liquid courage in the vicinity of a pond or mud hole.

my quesation is, how do you go about sealing up the rest of the crap under the hood, distributor, fuse box and all that stuff, my last truck was so damn tall I wouldnt have thought about crossing water deep enough to swamp it, so I am a little dumb on this

Coat all electrical, spark plugs, sensors, etc. with Dilectric Grease. This will waterproof everything electrical. You can silicone around the distributor if needed.

^^^^^AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE ABOVE PIC, THE SNORKLE SETUP WORKS.
THE WATER STAIN ON MY SOFT UPPER DOORS WAS WHERE THE WATER WAS.

P.S. I picked this 94 YJ for $700 Do you think it was worth it?
I am going to attempt to install one similar to this on my 91 4.0, except since my hood is already got a scar on the right front, I was thinking of sealing up the factory intake hole in the front of the airbox and going straight out the side of the airbox in the space right by the left rear hold down clamp for lid and then coming straight out thru the hoodmaking a 90 back and then following the windshield frame up, I already have a K&N drop in, and I think I can cut the hood and roll the lip back so there aren't any sharp edges, and possibly use some rubber to seal the gap around the hole and the tubing. This way I don't make any holes in the body, and don't have to relocate the overflow bottle.
Can anyone think of any negative effects this may have? Because I truly cannot.
Here is a rendering of how I plan to set it up.

You can use the setup i made for the mc2100. all you have to do it get a longer hose that goes from the air hat to the air box, or make one yourself.. it is pretty straight foward...

Ok, so a couple questions:

1st: How do you know what to connect the snorkel to under the hood? What specifficaly does it attach to in order for the engine to breath?

2nd: How do you switch from belt to electric fan (list of what else you have to do before deep diving)

3rd: What would you have to do with your radio, CD player, etc. inside ? If water were to get that high, it would ruin it..

-Thanks

if you read all of the above post and if you click on the link in my sig you will see what you need to get and use to connect your snorkel.

if you do a search on electric fan setups you will find many ways of hooking up and setting up an electric fan in your rig.

if you tub is pretty tight and you have all holes and stuff sealed you dont have to worry about too much water getting into the jeep, also these setups are designed to help you get across deep water crossing and not designed for a jeep to do deep sea diving, if that is what you are planning then i would suggest getting a submarine,, and if you plan on driving in water that deep for a long time then i think your radio, cb, etc should be placed into a water tight compartment and sealed, just like a black box found on air planes.

if you look or search thru some of the pictures that i have and others have, you will see that i went thru some deep stuff and i have never had any problems with my electronics. and if i was to get stuck in deep water and was to fill my tub that high , i would be looking for a new radio, cb, etc. at least my motor would be safe and i would be able to make it home, once i got my jeep out of the water and dried off.
