So I was trying to do a little water crossing at GWNF and it got deep real fast. Basically the intake went below the water and it sucked in water until my engine shut off. Luckily my 4 banger didn't hydro lock and she's still kicking today. I changed the oil 4 times then it was time for some more wheeling. The water was about 5 feet deep. Completely covered my 33's, left fender, and up to the dash. And the water was really cold.


Getting winched out w/ my buddies Rover

Great pics looks like you had a good time even if the water was freezing at least you didnt get hydro lock.

YJs don't float? I thought they could do everything.

Glad its still running.
