Time to change der brake fluid!!! Good part starts at 15:40.BTW, few years ago I watched a movie on TV, where 1 of the off-road enthusiast (I think he did it partially for bussines) took older, open roof Jeep and fitted 12' snorkel to it.
He actually drove via 10 ft deep water and scuba-divers made some pictures.
But older Jeeps did not have much electronics and fluids were easier to change.
We might say:Time to change der brake fluid!!! Good part starts at 15:40.
Apologies to President Kennedy if they are needed...We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For
space scienceJeep modification, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of pre-eminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war. I do not say that we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of spaceJeeps any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that spaceponds can be explored and mastered in Jeeps without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours.
There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in
outer spaceour pond as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, the Moonpond? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas? [Why do people convert commercial Sprinter vans into campers?]
We choose to go to the
Moonbottom of the pond. We choose to go to the Moonbottom of the pond...We choose to go to the Moonbottom of the pond in this decadeJeep and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too.
This is debated but yes, in my opinion, it should face rearward. The idea you are getting any ram air effect is a little suspect. It would take courage to show up with a backwards snorkel and risk all the people at the trail making fun of you though. So there’s that.For trail dust, shouldn't the snorkel face the rear?
When most of factory air inlets do have shielding on front, what will kick heavier dust from entering, typical snorkel sucks it right in.
Also the colder air is closer to the ground. Higher you go, warmer it is, although probably with negligible differences.
Than what kind of dust we are talking about? My Ford Truck had HD air filter, where manufacturer claimed it will eat 2.6lb of dust before call for replacement. Filter had a gauge on it from the factory.
Than the linked article says the snorkels have systems separating rain water from going into the engine. I can't see it in any design, although would not mind to be proven that the good designs exist.
There is lot of snake oil on the roads.
