Re: Waterproofin\' the diffs via the snorkel pics...

Under the hood! I ran the hoses into my snorkel simply by drilling a couple of holes in it, inserting the hose, and puttin' a thick layer of silicon around 'em. Note how my snorkel fits nicely around the air filter intake. Well, I gotta find a better way of keepin' it in place, as it has a tendency to vibrate out slightly and break the silicon seal... Also note that there should be hoses coming from the t-case and the tranny. Well, I bought 20' of hose, thinkin' that would be plenty, and I was sorely mistaken. That's OK, tho, as I decided to run the T-case and tranny hoses into the rear-diff hose via two t-connectors, saving me more holes (read "possible leaks") in my snorkel.
