I was watching the vid of a couple of pre-runners doing a lot of playing in the water.

Obviously, you don't want water in the air intake, but are there any other areas that you would need to dry out after doing something like that? Breathers in the diff? any places / seals that water might get in and do damage?

I know everything under there is ment to take spray from the rain, but saoking in a couple of feet of water seems a little more htan the engineers were designing for.

The only other thing you have to worry about is the diff breathers if they get clogged your gonna blow a seal. Personally i got some dirt or something in the yolk and it ended up scratching it, which caused a leak that the seal couldn't seal, thats the only thing that ever happened to me when i used to play in the mud.I try to stay away from that now. It's a pain having to clean the filter on an intake all the time.

There are instructions on the diff breather extensions in the Cheap Tricks section and here:

Is it worth doing the breather extension if it will be a once in a while occurance?

I stay pretty much on the road. But I am not going to shy away from some water if it happens to cross my path.

I think it's worth it, it really is a cheap and easy mod. A little less to worry about. Sometimes water is just unavoidable, might as well be prepared.

It's worth it - consider it cheap insurance.
