flyin-lowe Is Chadwick the dude that "claimed" he was trying to impress his girl and drove into a small pond. Only to post pics of his jeep being removed from the Atlantic Ocean? I remember him.

it's on the front of the transmission just above the input shaft. It can be modified to move that vent opening to the top and add a vent hose to it but the transmission has to be removed to do that.

That means taking your Jeeps through water that is 2' deep is likely to produce a flooded transmission... especially bad news if you have an automatic. The axles and transfer case have remote vents on even the early TJs... but not the transmissions. It was starting in 2000 with the manual and 2003 with the automatic when the remote vent hoses appeared.
So how deep can the newer TJs go without issue?

Not that I plan to be crossing any 'small ponds' but if I end up driving through deep water, how deep before I need to drain all the fluids and replace them?

Jeep Wrangler Easily Handles 2 Feet Of Water Without Snorkel!

The Jeep wrangler is such a rugged SUV. This thing can easily drive through 2 feet of water without any snorkel gear or special additions. This thing is basically stock. The Wrangler can also do some amazing rock climbing.

The Jeep Wrangler is soooo tough..
