You took a pretty good angle at crossing the water...

Holy hell, you sure did get yourself stuck there. Kudos to you on using the thing for its intended purpose though! Too many people nowadays are buying shiny new Jeeps and babying them around town...

The whole axle assembly is being replaced now, I'm curious now to see if this was also the cause for steering problem

Everyone gets stuck in mud at some point.

Jeeps don't get stuck; they just pick inopportune times to stop and rest sometimes...

Hopefully that fixes everything! And when you get it back, you should weld a track bar going opposite of the stock one!

Well it wasn't intended at first. At first u followed those tracks filled with water to come in here. The water got deeper and deeper and there was a fallen tree lying across. No way the wheels would have grappled on to it. I started backing out and my friend gave me silly idea to do the k turn right there...

Now when I look at it it doesn't seem like it was the best idea.

Yeah. Imagine my surprise the first time I got stuck. I thought driving a jeep pretty much guarantees you don't get stuck. I had to prove that theory...

I'll tell you though, it has much better offroad capabilities than my previous Mercedes lol
