Good way to hydrolock JK8

Good to see dealerships fording water properly with new inventory.

Good grief.

I will say, that is a good looking rig. I'm normally not too fond of the JK8s or the Sidebiters, but that thing is pretty damn sweet.

I'm pretty sure that Chrysler was targeting close to 400 for the year and dealer demand has already been well over 500. My numbers may be a little off but I think I read that somewhere.

Wow! Tough going! Looks like the kind of stuff I used to do with my 78 Monza stationwagon (Vega) growing up in Montana. Totally no need for 4X4 or a vehicle that costs $50K.

Just in case anyone cares, the "river" is actually nothing more than a storm drain canal, and I am pretty sure that it runs through the property of the dealership.

Would live to see the ad on this one. New Jeep, smoke free. Then you see this video with the salesman stepping out with a cigarette in mouth. So not only is it used but it's been smoked in. I smell huge discount!

Uhhhhh, people, how come no one noticed that the thing is entirely branded to the dealership? It has the website on the windshield, hood, and the bed. This is an advertising dealer vehicle, not a jeep for sale. Also, while he was going too fast, there was never really any risk, the intake is in front of the wheel, and has a "seal" to the top of the hood. Very good design by Jeep.

If he was going faster or deeper maybe, but it didn't get that bad right there.
Sure they were knuckleheads about how they drove it, but as stated this is a promotional vehicle on the dealer's lot and they're showing it off for the camera.

Just curious, where was the danger of hydrolocking? It didn't look like it ever really got that deep. Driving too fast?

I wouldn't want to buy from them it that were my vehicle, the smoking bothers me more than the wheeling.

The last JP mag, Chrysler estimated 2-300, but sold 400. IMO those #'s seema bit low.

Doesn't matter if it's on their property, they don't own it. Nobody "owns" any water resource regardless if it's on their property. All of those tributaries, creeks, rivers and whatever you're calling a "storm drain canal" are owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. But, that's fine. Let them destroy it. My wife is a Water Resources Engineer, so she'd likely be called in to fix it...YAY for job security! More money for mods!

If that were in Minnesota and they got caught doing that the dnr would probably own that jeep and the dealership who put that jeep together.

It's the Passaic River, it's not a storm drain, click the video for the information.

I'm sure this violates some rivers and stream act.
