Waterproofing a CJ7

I've attached a picture of the canal I want to make it through. I still haven't learned to put the picture in with the text. The owner of the mud bogg park pays $200.00 to anyone that makes it unassisted. He usually keeps his money. The picture is of a Toy and there are deeper holes. It's all gumbo clay and black mud. I have a 304, Ford T-18,410 gears, Detroit's front and rear. electric fan with t-stat and manual control. 7 inches of total lift with 35's. My biggest concern is keeping water out of the carb without a snorkel. I'm thinking of attaching a piece of sheet metal to the hood that will fit in front of the air filter when the hood is closed. Any other suggestions appreciated.

Re: Waterproofing a CJ7

It depends on how radical you want to be. What do you have against a snorkel?

My guess is that you have to protect against flying spray more than full submersion. Is that right? If so, you could run the air intake hose through the firewall somewhere. It should be pretty dry in the passenger compartment.
