Is there a solution between driving slow & installing a snorkel? I've stomped puddles in every vehicle I've ever owned except for my '84 Ranger and now my 2011 Jeep and hate to give up that fun of watching water spray up as high as my windshield.


This is maybe 12" of water & mud from this last weekend, with the current intake on this JK (next picture), I may have to watch from the sidelines next time.


Note the dried muddy water inside the intake horn, is that lucky or not a problem?

I've done the same thing. That doesn't seem to be a problem. It's when you go through over and over as I stated earlier.

Here is a video of a properly designed off-road vehicle crossing deep water. 100% stock, no snorkel. The air intake is in the right place and has a cyclonic separator to deal with water and coarse dust before they enter air filter / box..

That's the difference between a real off-road vehicle and a cheap imitation..

Interesting to note that the official Jeep Wrangler water fording video recommends using a TJ...

Wow, that sucks for the guy, but maybe the engine isn't toast. If I was him, I'd pulled the plugs and crank it over to remove excess water. Then dry it out a bit and see if you can get it to start, it may not have damaged anything, although I know bent valves are pretty common.

The FJ is a "real off-road vehicle" but the Jeep is a "cheap imitation"?? Really?? Oh you're killing me . . . I'm laughing so hard I'm crying a little.

Edit: Feeding the trolls just a little bit.

I'm not saying the FJs aren't good off roaders--they certainly are. It's just that most off road publications that I've seen do comparisons of the two pick the Jeep as the better off roader. Real lockers, sway discos, two solid axles, better visibility, better clearance, etc. But even if we just say it's a "toss up" as to which is better, suggesting that the jeep is a "cheap imitation" while the FJ is a "real" off road vehicle is asinine. That may be the conclusion of guys on Toyota forums, but I've never seen a reputable publication come anywhere close to that.

Edit: Consider the troll fed.

LOL! That wasn't even off-road. That was showing off on-road!
