If fitting a snorkel is high up on your list of "must haves" then a raised transmission breather kit should be higher. This is possibly one of the most important but least considered upgrades you could give your Land Rover. The real likelihood of a flood or river crossing being deep enough to require a snorkel is far less than the 18” of water that could potentially cost you a considerable amount of money rebuilding differentials. A submerged axle will likely suck water in through the seals mixing with the oil. Dirty water will quickly wear seals, bearings, and gears, and in no time cause failures. The more of your vehicle that is likely to be submerged, the more items that will benefit from breathers being extended.
Terrafirma offers a range of kits for Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Defenders to cover all of the common casings. Breathers are raised to the highest point of the vehicle, commonly the snorkel. Fitting raised transmission breathers does not guarantee that water will not enter the axles and transmission, especially on vehicles persistently used in deep water, but it has been proven to significantly reduce the possibility and should rank as one of the most important off-road accessories to be fitted.
