Holy crap that does look like my Jeep! (**Pause while checking driveway to confirm still there.**)



But, a few key giveaways make clear that, alas, it is in fact not me.

First, no Mopar gas cap. DUH, Jude. How could you miss such a detail! I paid full Mopar cost for that damn thing, it's like gold . . . And where's my lift?? You sweated yourself to put that thing on . . .

Second--and this one's more subtle--I am not a ridiculous ass clown like the joker riding that jeep. Good lord, how many times can you shift with your transmission under water?? (Is that only a concern for us manual drivers?) I also like early on when he tries several times to get out by driving full speed at the only VERTICAL surface available, then tries the angled surface that damn near rolls him.

Third and finally, the removal of my air dam was much less graceful. It also involved more swearing . . . though probably less beer.

Good catch man, this cracked me up.

Looked like he was having some fun in that hole, but I was wondering about the shifts too. I've read on this forum in several places that shifting under water is bad... Maybe the guy driving that Jeep was in 'learn mode' and just trying to see what no lift, street radials and no experience would get...

MAN! That was great to watch.
Yeah, I'm new enough that it took a minute to realize that those were street tires.

Still, that thing looked pretty happy wallowing around in that hole like a big ol' poorly driven hippo. (yeah, go into the deeps again)

Good stuff folks.

I would definitely call that a wallow. I'd say that was worse than walking out of the house forgetting to put pants on.

I don't know which was more impressive - this guy's supreme stupidity, or the fact that the Jeep could withstand this kind of abuse.

If one happens to be playing in the water/mud.... and realizes they've gone and screwed themselves and need to back out, how bad is it to shift into reverse to egress? I read that you can shift into first and 4wheel without clutching on a stalled engine by design, but what do you do when its still running? Just shift and hose it down later?

I honestly don't know what the big deal is about using the clutch while in water. That guy wasn't even that deep into the water and odds are the bell housing wasn't filled. The clutch probably got a very minimum amount of water on it.

But water will ruin it? Its about the same material as your brakes and they seem to do just fine when they get wet and are used. With the clutch, once its wet, the first time you start out it 2 hi or 4 hi its going to build up enough heat to dry itself off.

I've done it in a lot of vehicles. The worst one was my 75 K5 with a 3 spd w/granny gear. It had the whole bell housing packed with mud. It killed the started and the clutch still worked fine. I had to push start the thing/ park on hills for a week until I get the started swapped out.

I don't think you will damage anything instantly but sure will lesson the life of the clutch.

Most complain of noises after shifting through mud.

I believe you can shut the jeep off, shift and start in reverse without depressing the clutch if you needed to.
