Post 1 pic of your Jeep in water deep enough to need a snorkel that extends to the top of your windshield (running of course as that would indicate you actually waterproofed everything needed to make it really work) and I'll retract my statement.

Personally, between rocks and trees a snorkel wouldn't last 1 ride on my Jeep.

You dont need to go in water over your windshield to need a snorkel. If you have water up to your headlights, chances are you are sucking in water and Ive been hood deep a few times. And yes, everything else is "waterproofed" with grease and extended vent lines

Nice hijack, but I'll add to it.

The intake is behind the driver's turn signal. If you get into any real water and don't either disconnect the intake or homebrew relocate it, a snorkel is a viable option. If you don't, you WILL suck water into your air box.

If you do water on a regular basis, a snorkel might not be a bad idea.
