wheeling without doors?

hey Im new to the wheeling world. Ive taken my jeep crawling a little bit. also Ive taken mudding and was curious if wheeling without the doors on would matter if i went into deeper water? i understand the water will come into the jeep im not worried about that. i guess a better question would be is it common to go into fairly deep water without the doors on?

If its your first trip to that place I would go doors on. I will always wheel a new place with top on and doors on also just to test the water. If its not to bad I will go doors off and topf off also next time.

look into raising your axle and transmission breather hoses and install a snorkel.

I am with this. My JKU was ruined because of mud. I went into red mountain mud and it caked onto the underbelly of the Jeep and would never come back off.

I really don't like mud.. I just enjoy decent water fording and crawling. Either you're a mudder or you're not.

Mud sucks. I try to avoid it if at all possible. I hate wheeling with doors, but in CT sometimes you have no choice. It's so much easier to see where your tires are without doors. I should have gotten the heated seats, maybe that would have helped.

My old jeep in the pic - no doors, but top cuz it was raining. It wasn't too deep, just enough to come in over the sills a little bit.

Nope. CT sucks. We usually end up in MA.

Aside from a wet butt and tree branches in the face its fun. If you're like me and love the mud the cleanup is an afterthought.
