Hey guys,
I am looking to take my jeep out maybe Saturday or possibly Sunday. I like the idea of going to the wash. How was that? I have a k&n cai and a mechanical fan, will these be problems out there?

You don't have to drive out into the water unless you want to. Just know your limits and walk it first, esp if you are alone.

I would want to. I used to have a 4runner that I would take deep, into the water, but with the exposed filter in my jeep, I am concerned. I would rather have the stock box, unless it rained more, then I'd get a snorkel, but I don't see the point being in a desert.

Snorkels are supposedly useful on dusty roads as well. May be just a sales gimmick though?

You don't want to go out too far. There is a 10 - 15 foot drop off as it hits the Colorado River.

Another reason why I won't go alone. Ideally I'd run with people who know what's going on out there.

I wouldn't bother with a snorkel unless the engine absolutely would need it (i.e. underwater). Reason? I have tried breathing through a straw before; not easy. I cannot imagine it is much more helpful for an engine - the more airflow the better for me and my engine.

Agreed, and that's why I haven't gotten one, it seems unnecessary for my driving. However the exposed air filter of my cold air intake, I will not take it in too deep water. That's why I want to go back to the stock air box, at least when I get to the mud or something like that.

They do make pre- filters for CAI. Not water proof per say but probably just as good as the stock air box.

So, anyone interested in a week day run? Local trails or something close, I don't know what is out here, just trying to get something started.

I'm hoping to hit up the mall and maybe a couple loading ramps with mine one evening next week if anyone is interested?
