haha. I saw your post about locking your motor up and then i see this snorkel post for you...lol..Anyway, I cant find a snorkel kit for the rangers. But even if you could snork the air intake, there are a lot of electrical connections that could cause you to stall. Might be a lot of work. Just get a fourwheeler!

These guys put a snorkel for an '80s Land Cruiser on their '97 Ranger - maybe there are some good tips in there:

You just plug the exhaust with a cork! No water, no problem!
