Don't wanna be a buzz kill, but I don't know that PARKING your Jeep in deep water is the best idea.
But at to least to at least add to the thread, here is me and my sister splashing through a mountain stream.

Here's a link to a vid of a few of us crossing a river in northen PA, in mid-May. The day before this vid the crossing was impassable for most of us, too deep from recent rains.

i know it isn't too bad as long as your transmission or differential aren't completely submerged. i don't want to park in too deep of water! lol

Well, sometimes it happens...







We've had to pull plugs and drain oil a few times. Never had one damaged internally.

Ptoncannon, Growing up in Harlem Georgia and being stationed at Fort Gordon twice, I used to find water at Clarkes Hill. Always wanted to cross Savannah River but never knew where. I know there are several spots that are shallow enough.

did the jeep survive??? haha, i would be entirely too scared to take it that deep!! haha, also, i thought if you got water in your engine it would hydrolock and essentially be shot?? if i were you id invest in a snorkel! I've been wanting to make my own even though i don't do anything that deep! haha

Haven't lived there in almost 20 years. You might check out a local club for current locations. I will email an old buddy of mine for some ideas.

But all that "blah blah blah" is why we still have trails to go on. Without it assholes would ruin it all for no one else to enjoy. Have some respect man.

Don't listen to these assclowns. They didn't even inquire as to where and how you were going to ride. You are right though. Too many environmentalist wack jobs that selectively address the problems. I ride mountain bikes and see more trash and destruction from hikers and campers than I have ever seen from wheelers.

i cannot stand when people litter like that and see it ALL of the time on the mountain bike trails and very rarely see it on wheeling trails... imnot saying lets all just go do whatever we want and trash whatever we want and ride absolutely everywhere we want, destroying wildlife and plant life making everything look like shit in the mean time, i agree with the conserving the rivers and lakes but i am no extreme environmentalist who says no riding anywhere... and the lake i would be wanting to ride in is only populated on the banks by bass, bream, and gar... not really anything worth conserving and killed every day by people eating them, much worse than the damage, if any i would cause... crazyjz and krisbman i FULLY agree with conservation, as i am very involved with the savannah river keeper and love me some creek and river fishing, but you don't understand my area... our creeks are polluted to hell and back, almost no fish living in there, our river is the 4th most polluted river in the nation and does not have any valuable fish such as trout or anything.

and i know what you're about to say "this pollution is caused by people like you!" no, its caused by a nuclear power plant (SRS) and all of the dumb ass pot heads and the low life population we have in this city... i did not want to start anything and i am sorry if i raised tempers but the bottom line is, i believe in conservation and i am VERY active in it, hate people that trash the river and do what has been done to it, and do not want to go tear up everywhere i can get my car to. i simply want to go camping and possibly attempt to take my car into shallow water for kicks!

Red Tj was just a guy I worked with who asked me to take him out he couldn't get enough of the water, me I like to get in and out as fast as possible, 15yrs or so seen my friends custom Jeep on 44's 1/2 floating 1/2 driving down a not so slow moving river until hitting solid ground , some scary stuff, if it wasn't for his nerve and keeping his foot on the gas?? wish I had a pic of that, better yet a video. Tread lightly though, should really try and stay out of rivers during certain times of year I would think.

My hoods in the lower part of the picture, the water was over it for a little while. My buddy in the Yota ended up hydrolocking his engine because his intake is right by his headlights.

October 15 to April 15 is considered the trout spawning season.

Best to avoid creek crawling during the winter and early spring months in trout (cool clear mountain streams) waters.
