The rain gave me another excuse to got out and play! I told my wife I was using the water to get the rest if the mud out of the undercarriage that seems to be mysteriously appearing in the driveway every night like it needs a diaper!

I do have a question, if I buy a snorkel is everything else under the hood already able to go underwater? Or do I need to get other equipment to waterproof the engine compartment

Looks like a lot of fun!

You'll need more than a snorkel if you plan on going deep. The electronics will need to be addressed as well as axle vents and more. It's not too bad to do though.. Search around in the JK section and you should find exactly what you need to know.

Sweet pic and looks like you don't have to go far to play in the water!
Yes you will need to seal up your electronics. But that can be done quite easily and like JD95YJ said you will need to extend your vents for axles, tranny and transfercase. Extend your vents is a good idea even if you don't plan on going deep. Just going through some mud puddles you can get stuff in them. I have extended all of mine just in case I go through something.
