Screwed

Being the owner of a Jeep and a Wee is ridiculous. Throw in some guns and screw yourself completely!!😂🤔😯🤓&# x1f641;🤣

Often

I've often thought ownership of a Jeep was a sign of an inferior intellect. Not sure a Wee is significant.

Had a friend that was into serious off-roading many years back. He built up a number of vehicles, but never a Jeep. Asked him why, and he said, with a Jeep, you basically jack up the radiator cap and replace everything else.

Perhaps they are better now.

Hey, I had 2 jeeps. A 1965 CJ5 and a 1966 CJ6 Tuxedo Mark IV. Fabulous fun.
They weren't over priced back then.
If you don't like Jeeps, your taste is all in your mouth. It's the quintessential start of what became the off road market.
Although, there were some tracked and 4WD Model T's.

I've never seen much purpose in having a snorkel. Of course, I've never needed to ford a river while in a vehicle in order to survive (and probably never will)... At any rate, by the time the water is deep enough to enter the cabin and destroy the interior and wiring, the engine is still mostly above the water line with the standard intake well above it...

Perhaps the units with factory fitted snorkels are also hardened against water ingress to the cabin and all the wiring connectors?

Can someone with a snorkel enlighten me some? I've always been a little curious as to how they are typically used and what their limitations are.

The snorkel is more useful for getting the intake higher up out of the dust. Doesn't do much good in deep water unless the rest of the engine bay is waterproof.

Only crossing rivers. It also helps keep the dust out of the air filter.
Edit: Mine is a CRD. The potential deep water electrical issues are minimal.

I learned more about working on vehicles in 75,000 miles of CJ-5 ownership than in 1,250,000 miles of Toyota ownership.

But damn it was fun taking the doors off and putting my left knee in the breeze. Been thinking of another Jeep recently. Send money......
