    High mounted air intakes are popular Down Under on all kinds of vehicles.

    That and when they turned on the windshield wipers when only a few inches of windshield were above water.

    not a bad design idea actually, makes drafting easy. Strainer on the intake and drive into the pond/lake/river and start going.

    Would that be called drive and pump??

    They could use the deck pipe and drive around in circles!

    That would bring new meaning to the phrase "flooded suction pump."

    Not a bad item for Special Service rigs for use in Wildland Firefighting or Search & Rescue. Currently available to the U.S. market are snorkel intakes for the 2010 and earlier Ford Super-Duty F-Series diesels. One must remember though, modified roof height exhaust outlet and also roof height breather lines for the transmission, transfer case and axles as well.
