Oem snorkels is cool. But if you go in water that deep, does water enter the cab lol?
My truck as at home, but if I remember correctly our trucks use double rubber door seals. But more importantly, if you end up in that deep of a water fording situation, you will care more about the engine not ingesting water than your carpet getting wet. :D

So the answer is, not that much water will enter the cab. But what is "not too much water"? That's going to be pretty subjective.

The cab is mostly sealed. There are only two spots on the firewall, high up, with heavy rubber grommets for the wiring looms. The doors are indeed double gasketed. But no-one is going to give you an "ip" rating on these trucks. So your question doesn't have a straight forward answer.

Love smartass replies like yours though. My knowledge is restricted to a couple medium-deep water creek crossings. No water intrusion. But I haven't driven through a lake yet.

Hi JJ,

Well...not to answer your queston of cab sealing, I spent a month in Australia and chatted up a few folks that had snorkels. These guys used the snorkel to get into cleaner air on the back roads than to ford water...

Best,

That was always my understanding; for the infamous bull dust in Oz.

Not sure what folks use a snorkel for over her but I do usually carry a spare air filter in case of too much dusty driving !

Agree, it's a good looking truck. And those stripes are growing on me !

Is that the trend now for pillar lights ? Is there a down side, like back-refection in dusty or foggy conditions ?

Sadly, still no SVT style "Lightning/ Thunder" version of the Ranger which would be fit for street, track and towing.
