Can any one give me some tips on water proofing my internals. I live in Alaska and there are some deep water crossings. Maybe even some info on some snorkles=).
Thanks Josh

MAKE SURE you extend those axle vent tubes as high as possible for 1. I learned the hard way, had to put all new bearings in the front axle one month after it had been rebuilt.

yeah, don't forget your breather hose that runs to your transfer case. Get water in there and you are screwed.

First of all, I´m pretty sure that the vents of the axles are in the firewall, But beware of the TRANNY, because it has no vent line, I drove under 5 foots of water and the only thing that had water in was my Tranny, so try to waterproof your tranny and transfer.

Actually still have carpet, just left the doors off and it sitting in Reno for a few days. Amazing what heat and dry will do for ya. It really didn't suck at all, didn't get stuck, just drove through, was fun. Knew what to expect but the rest of the trail was tight and difficult so I wanted to have the doors off for that.
