    They also filter out dust depending on how you have it set up.

    Running trails up here in northern Michigan, long water crossings are normal with out by passes, having the snorkel adds a level of comfort when you first put your down into the hole that you are not sucking water into that low intake. The upper cowl intake is better, but a high intake is best. Is it right for everyone, no, but if you leading groups through water crossings, it adds a nice level of security.

    Same could be said for large tires on a Jeep that never leaves pavement. Pointless functionally, but lots of people think it looks cool. Plenty of people do it.

    To each his own I guess. Why not buy a tank? Aren't you worried about the inevitable electrical gremlins?

    Iíve been running those trails in that jeep for 6 years with no issues from water intrusion. Ironically, the only electrical issue Iíve ever had was on top a Mesa in Moab. Completely self inflicted when a wire got pinched when I installed a genesis dual battery tray.

    In truth, Iíve only submerged jeep over the hood twice to where it would have flooded a standard intake. And Iíd be happy to never do that again. But when you leading thru a water crossing, itís good to know itís there.

    And although it would be fun, I canít drive a tank to work everyday, but I can drive my Jeep. Although it may save some time in traffic

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
