I don't know what to think?????? You can't wash a JEEP under the hood but you can take it mudding???? I alway thought if you put a snorkle on your jeep you could damn near submerge it. ???????????????????????????? I guess this is why me jeep never leaves the pavement, and my ram 4x4 is always dirty.

You cant just put a snorkle on and dive.. You have to water proof stuff.. Like raising the vent tubes on the diffs and tranny and TC.
Put lithium grease in all light sockets and electrical connections ..
I personally spray silicone spray..( camp dry) on all the electrical connections and the distirbutor cap. .. There are several types of waterproof spray..
I sprayed all the plugs and stuff.. and Like I said .. I raise my hood and I spray everything ..
Alt. Dist. Battery ... Everything.. My engine looks brand new right now and Its been under water several times.. It is always covered in mud.. And I just wash it off..
BUT ..... I dont take the blame if you spray yours and something goes wrong..

Just saying what I do.. Not telling anyone else to do it..


Just another soccer moms Grocery getter....
