First time off-road!

My buddy and I spent Saturday afternoon doing a bit if off-road driving. I went through some water that was a little deeper than we initially thought and he jeep stalled - water got in the distributor. We dried it and she fired right back up.

Thus git me thinking... Aside from sealing the distributor, what other types of prep should I do before our next trip?

Check all of your fluids. Water could have seeped into your diffs and transmission.

Prep your mind that it's not a boat and say "no" to anything deeper than your bumpers.

Never understood why guys want to take their jeeps in deep water. Nothing good can come of it. To much stuff to go wrong.

Haha! Understood. I am going to lift it with a rough country 4" and replace tires at some point before summer.

This is true, I'm done playing in deep water, as it has not been nice to me.

I hit a pretty good hole when I was out. I definitely will be avoiding deep water. I prefer trail driving more than water.
