Jeep Wrangler Easily Handles 2 Feet Of Water Without Snorkel!

The Jeep wrangler is such a rugged SUV. This thing can easily drive through 2 feet of water without any snorkel gear or special additions. This thing is basically stock. The Wrangler can also do some amazing rock climbing.

The Jeep Wrangler is soooo tough..

Hahahahaha yeah he did have a snorkel...he just seemed to have difficulty differentiating between a "small pond" and one of the Great Lakes...

Be wary taking your Jeeps through water that deep. Earlier Wrangler transmissions like the AX-5 and AX-15 manual transmissions, and the 30RH and 32RH automatic transmissions are vented and their vents are open... not extended upwards via rubber hoses to be out of the reach of water like newer TJs have. That means taking your Jeeps through water that is 2' deep is likely to produce a flooded transmission... especially bad news if you have an automatic. The axles and transfer case have remote vents on even the early TJs... but not the transmissions. It was starting in 2000 with the manual and 2003 with the automatic when the remote vent hoses appeared.

So how deep can the newer TJs go without issue?

Not that I plan to be crossing any 'small ponds' but if I end up driving through deep water, how deep before I need to drain all the fluids and replace them?

The remote air vents are extended up to about the gas cap level. Trusting of course that they are still properly connected and water tight at the other end

it's on the front of the transmission just above the input shaft. It can be modified to move that vent opening to the top and add a vent hose to it but the transmission has to be removed to do that.

Is Chadwick the dude that "claimed" he was trying to impress his girl and drove into a small pond. Only to post pics of his jeep being removed from the Atlantic Ocean? I remember him.
