Re: snorkle

Upload the pictures to a webpage account, or to one of those online photo albums, then just link to it.

I WANA SEE!

It must be snorkel season, everyones getting one.
Must be that, I just got the whole damn thing back together for the summer, and it's working, now what can I do to mess it all up again, mentality.

Do you think insurance will cover the carb if it some how "teleports" behind the tires of a 350 with dualies?

Re: snorkle

why would anybody what a snokle with all the computers on today vehicles, that is the quickest way to fry a electrical system. No matter how tight you seal a motor it will still fry. If you want to play in water get a boat.

Re: snorkle

Re: snorkle

My Jeep has virtually no electrical systems, they have been pretty much ripped out, the only thing that might explode/blowup/short is all my dash crap, but its been replaced so much, it's hardly a challenge anymore.

Re: snorkle

Brownbagg,
The real reason for a snorkel is not to "Play, in the water like a boat"
I am including some reasons below for you:
1. A snorkel is like an additional insurance policy. It can help prevent an engine from becoming hydro locked (you know what that is right?) Every real jeeper on this BBS has probably forded some type of stream or waterhole that crossed their favorite trail. Compare the cost of a new engine to that of replacing a computer.
2. By moving the air intake to a point outside the engine compartment, you allow fresh, cool air into your engine which makes it run smoother, cooler and can even add a slight HP increase (it did for mine).
3. I have traveled around the world and there are many countries where just about every vehicle has a snorkel for the reasons above. The snorkel I have on my CJ is made in Australia and I know those guys go 4-wheeling over there.
I have included a useful link for you since you are so interested in boating.http://www.boatersworld.com
If Qjeep wants a snorkel, it is his business.

Re: snorkle

you have never met the redneck in my neighborhood, weekly they take new models tj through creeks and river. I can count on over ten computer fry in the last year, I can understand prevental maintance but the other to cross a creek on purpose. I have learned after a thousand dollar transmission rebuild to stay out of the water. I still stand by my opinion that a computer controlled motor cost to much to tear up ten minutes in the water. It is not the question if it will tear up but when it will tear up, they all do. you cannot waterproof a motor tight enough to cross creek. So burn me if you want.

Re: snorkle

"A Jeep's not a submarine."

Some people said going faster then 60MPH was impossible.
Some people said that powered flight was impossible.
Some people said that going faster then the speed of sound was impossible.

So if we can make big fancy relay dishes orbit the earth, and if we can make a man walk on the moon, and if we can drive a car at more then the speed of sound, then I can sure ass hell make my Jeep go in one side of the river, and come out the other.
