PCM and IDM are both located below the airbox, and neither one plays well with water. Chances are if you are fording regularly, you will be dead in the water (pun intended) long before you have a chance to suck any H20 through the intake.
I hear ya on that and its a good point but if you did plan to have the need for a snorkle regularly couldnt ya do a relocate on them and fix the issue or make a sealed box for them somehow? Either way its time consuming and expensive to do just to go through some high water.
Get a junker to do that stuff to, as stated PCM and idm would fry quick if you get that deep anyway
Exactly. There's a reason I own a danger-ranger. Big truck gets me to the trails, little truck gets me down them.
So many things working against 3/4 and 1 ton trucks when it comes to off-road capability. Long, wide, takes a empty five acre field to turn around, heavy *** engine hanging off the front, no weight over the back, parts are expensive when you break something, tons of (relatively) exposed electronics hanging out in the engine bay.
If the truck is a toy, go right ahead. If you plan on driving it on the street be warned that forced induction and snorkels are a bad combination unless you have the engineering know-how to do it right.
