I am installing a snorkel on my M101 just as soon as I can

I'm not sure if I understand the pasttime of high-risk water crossings, but interesting video nevertheless. Thanks for sharing it!

Those guys are crazy but they would have had alot less trouble if they would take of the doors. This is less surface for the water to pusha gainst and that may have been enough to prevent the capsizes.Of course taller rigs would have worked wonders too!Originally Posted by ccd8541

Another Schmorkle Farkle video
Pretty impressive as even the snorkle head goes under water at one point. However, I wouldn't drive my truck through water that deep and fast for anything.
There's a real fine line between cool and stupid -

I love that video, it was the first promo video for safari snorkle I watched.
I'll pass on driving in with my truck, but hey might be fun to watch

super cool to watch, and not to be a downer, but i wonder how many pollutants get introduced into our water systems by crossings like these? i'm certainly not an expert, but it strikes me as not great "tread lightly" practices either...not judgeing, just discussing.
