Sorry for the story but I feel its better to get my point across
So two friends and I were doing a little south central PA wheeling yesterday. I am driving an essentially stock 1998 Tj sahara 4.0, only thing new is a K&N air filter. They were in ford trucks...(ranger with 33s and a bone stock 2011 f150). All was even with performance(wrangler better in the mud
)until we got to a creek crossing....Now rest assured this creek was in flood stage...but we were going to cross it, which we have done before. The water was probably 2 1/2 feet deep except for a little area right at the end where it was probably 4 feet. The fords went across "no problem" except for a little rough idle. I did not cross
I am ashamed to say I was too worried about messing something up and didn't feel like losing my Jeep. It def wasnt sitting as high as either truck. Would you have gone in my situation? what is a safe depth? and is water just a bad idea all around? Please let me know. I am going back today and am debating going through.
Thanks for reading!
