Depending on use of truck I.E. play mud rig with occasional deep water fun, hunting rig that goes through occasional deep water, back country camping rig.

I would do it if it was needed if not then no but its your truck bub do what ya want cause in the end if your happy what does it matter what someone thinks.

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.

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.
