That's what I did.....then as luck would have it....the new jeep was less than 26 hrs old and some f*ckstick pulled in front of me and I rear ended him. Th best part was.....he was driving on a suspended license.

How do I post pics from my phone to here?

CarolinaBound Keep your stock intake. If you really want to relocate it move it to the cowl so that if your nose dips you have a chance, but then you have to worry about the drain in there unless ya go H1 style. Extend your diff and tranny breather tubes and be happy. In water the rule is slow as possible, quick as necessary. Always check the depth before hand with a stick or antenna.

Finally had to have it towed......any ideas?

icicle It's wet. Distributor, ignition system, electronics. Just let it sit for a while and dry out, the amount of time can vary depending on where you live. You also may have water in the cylinders, which is no bueno, consider pulling spark plugs and looking with an inspection camera or finding a way to get it dried out if so.
