    If you're fording deep water correctly, it will create a build up of water on the front of your Jeep and potentially to the point where water comes up and over your hood, even if the actual water level is significantly lower that in. The ensuing bow wake will cause the water to drop away and so locating the intake further back alone can be a significant help to keeping water out of it. At least, I think that's the idea anyway. My rigs all sit pretty tall and I've never felt the need for snorkel and would never want to cross rushing water deep enough to want one.

    Very well made video you two!
    I am not a fan of snorkel-looks, maybe anti-fan, but when I first saw this type of snorkel I liked it, I mean the low profile one. Really clean look, fits the JL/JT perfectly. And the technical fit seems to be really good. This oval shaped pipe between those huge hoses which goes from the front to the back isn't fixed, is it? I am thinking about rattling noises...
