I have also discussed that same mod with a couple of friends - and from what we can figure out - it should work without a problem.
Now - to find someone willing to let us try it out

well, I bet we have all seen the vented hood, not the same exact thing.. but you could come up with a design possibly...hey, I was wondering.... if u really wanted to, out up movve the intake filter to the interior of your jeep through the firewall? I know, it sounds kinda wierd.. but I cant see allot of water making it into the interior while river crossing.... just an idea guys
I don't like the idea of having the intake drawing air from the cab. Reasons being the noise, possibility of backfire fumes, and fire. I know the last two reasons are far fetched but but I would rather avoid those problems than take the risk of them happening.
I am thinking that a defroster duct from a CJ might work for the piece going through the firewall. I have never seen one so if someone happens to know the approximate dimensions please let me know. I think that a wide head vacuum cleaner attachment could also work if shaped correctly. Anyway, these are just some ideas and if someone has suggestions just speak up. I will take pics of the whole project and would like to do a write up but I'm not sure that I can with my limited PC knowledge.
Oh yeah, I have a buddy that wants the snorkel as soon as it comes off so it's basically sold.
