The problem is that the drains in the bottom aren't big enough. Fill that box full of water+ a little mud and see how long it takes to drain out. If it gets full and you turn hard to the left etc. I've been thinking of placing a 1" 1 way valve in the bottom of the air box until I've got the $$$ for an AEV hood and snorkel.Just to get the facts straight. What was the Dealers 'Offcial' writeup of the damage to the JK?
Why? Here's a pic of the JK intake (from my JK - I have an AEM system with an Outerwears prefilter):
The water would have to come in, go down the intake tube, then back up and through the filter (while not draining out the holes in the intake). If the OP submerged the JK then 'maybe' but.....somehow I don't thing we're getting the whole story.
