bad driving :lol: just kidding... you shouldn't submerged the piaa's when they are on.. lens will shatter... so make sure to turn them off when you're playing in deep water... I just re-placed mine a month ago... forgot to turn them off when i played in the water.. broke both lenses and water and mud got inside of the assembly.. that eventually killed both lights... :mecry:

PIAAs were off but they are a pain in the ass to take apart and clean out when they are full of mud haha

I would definately check your rear diff fluid pronto. There is a thread on how to do the scuba. It is not difficult. Not sure who sells a kit.

I would definitely check your fluids to make sure you didnt get any water in the dif You can buy the SCUBA mod kit from FJNewb. I just ordered mine and kt will be here by Friday, I think it was $65. Check out this link. :cheers:

Most people would benefit more from the SCUBA Mod than the snorkel. Get the SCUBA Mod first, at least.
