If I were to consider running through water deep enough to warrant a snorkel, is the snorkel the only accessory I need. It would seem to me that there would be other associated problems with water travel, such as;

a. alternator
b. ignition
c. dipstick
d. late model underhood water sensitive electronic
components.
e. axle venting

Yea, yea, I know, close doors and windows if so equipped.

Need some suggestions on how to solve or where to purchase.

Thanks

Sounds like you have the basics of it. Alternator there isn't anything you can do about, anything done to try and seal it from moisture is just going to keep more heat in it and fry it sooner. Silicone your distributor cap for sure. Use a dialectric grease on your plug wires/coil wire. Run axle vent tubes up and either into the snorkel or install a one way breather on them. Give all the sensors a shot of silicon spray before fording water.
