I have stock diffs and I have been reading on theses threads that when water fording you need to worry about you air intake and your diffs. Is there a way to seal them to water can't get in? Same with the axile? Thanks in advance

Dude I am going to give you a nugget of wisdom but I am not going to post it on all 3 threads you have going at this time about the same thing.



Stay out of the water!!!!! You are going to ruin your Jeep and piss the nice people that bought you that Jeep off. Do yourself a favor and listen to me, you will kill your Jeep and regret it.

You can ask different questions in threads you start. Your the creator of the thread... especially since all 3 of your threads are the same thing.

You NEED the vents to allow air to go in and out as the axle and transmission cools and heats up. If you plan on going in water deeper than the bottom of your door or so, I would extend the breather tubes. Super cheap and easy. Always check your oil for foamy or creamy substance after you go in water or deep mud. If you HAVE to go in water on a trail thats deep, as long as it is below the air intake (say bottom of headlight) you can do it, as long as you go right home and change all fluids.

All the fluids would be the diffs the oil and the trany right? Do I have to take both diffs completely appart? Because that would be a pain in the ass. Thanks for the useful information by the way.

For the diffs you just need to pull the diff cover off, let it pour out, reapply either RTV or a lubelocker gasket (much easier), and refill with gear lube. Tranny/transfer case just remove the drain bolt, let it drain out, and use the fill hole to fill it back up.

A snorkel should not be installed to enable you to go into deep water or mud. It should be more of a precaution aiding when you accidently wade to deep. Yes, we should all check the depth beforehand but it does happen.

With that said I have gone through pretty deep water before and you don't have to change all the fluids, etc when you do go through water. Just be caution and informed about it and always check your fluids after going through deep water. It is not a submarine but can handle some pretty deep water if it needs to.
