this thread makes me think...... Wonder if it would be feasible or easily done to create your own system that relocates the inlet to the inside of the body, like behind the glovebox. I know buggies do this, but that is a simple process there. I think it would be loud though.

I am not crossing a river that is 1/2 mile wide, I am crossing a creek or canal with a duration of 5 to 15 seconds tops moving constantly.


I have done water crossings in other vehicles and if you have also, then you know with constant steady forward motion in a crossing the vehicle forms a trough under the vehicle as the front of the vehicle pushes the water forward and around the vehicle and comes back behind the vehicle.
If the vehicle is submerged above the hood and front grill of the vehicle, well then, all the dynamics change, water is everywhere.

Sometimes it gets deeper than you think, this was a couple years ago in my YJ started out fine then just got deeper and deeper. I had doen this same crossing before just not this early in the year after the snow melt.

You always check depth and bottom conditions IE: Muck mud or sand, before you cross unknown waterways, even if it means getting yourself soaking wet, hell of a lot less expensive than water locking an engine and walking out.



The ones I am talking about in my situation are well know to me for depth.
