No matter the expedition, a shakedown trip is always in order. The worst time to find out that your pack is poorly constructed or your boots aren't as waterproof as advertised is halfway up the mountain. The same could be said for our snorkel for the 2019+ Ford Rangers. So, to make sure our kit was up to snuff, we made sure to shake it down through different forms of testing.
Before we started testing, however, we still had a gap to fill, literally. The whole concept behind adding a snorkel to your off-roading rig is to entirely relocate your primary air inlet location out of harm's way, but a means of blocking off that inlet didn't appear in our last blog post. So we wanted to make sure that it got the spotlight it deserves.
