thanks for the very nice write-up and pics. I'm waiting for the ups guy to start my installation.

Concerning water fording, Did you guys raise all of your breather tubes also? I know that the diff breathers are pretty high from the factory (front is at top of radiator, rear is tied to the gas filler neck). But my trany breather was way down the filler tube and the T-case breather was laying on top of the tranny! I extended those lines up to the top of the firewall, along with the intake for the air locker pumps. You should also install an electric radiator fan.

So now I feel comfortable going in over the tires, that'll be 31" of water.

Great install.

I took one look at the sewer hose you used and laughed.

It's generally not air that flows through those!

You like my creative use for ABS pipe?

As far as raising the breathers and waterproofing the distributor and such, I didn't do anything else. As a matter of fact, I have the 32RH which has its breather located behind the torque converter, no extension possible without drilling and tapping the case. But as I said before, I really like to refer to this as a "cold air intake," rather than a snorkel.

I avoid deep water; I will not go into a crossing unless I know how bad it is. On top of everything else, I wheel in a muddy region and I will not go through a pit that looks deep. If I ever get that interested in water, I'll invest in a jet-ski.

I'm getting ready to do this myself, just wondering if this would work since I cant find any hummer caps like the one you used.
