Is faster better than slower because you are pushing the water away from the jeep?

Why do some lock up in 10 inches and others will go through this. Are they making changes to the air box or something?

watch all 3 vids again... in one you see rooster tails flying, and in the other two you see splashing, but they lack the big flying water of the first....

the difference is mostly common sense...

WatchThis! True but it was still a hydrolocked engine that would turn over. The one in the video could have had something along those lines happen to it.

The condition you describe is the RESULT of a hydrolock being relieved by a part breaking, not the hydrolock itself. Trust me.... if you are hydrolocked, that engine will NOT turn over....water is an incompressible fluid.

I think this one was a simple case of electronics flooding....

Pop open your hood. It will be right up top by the passenger wheel well; should be the only black box in there with a 3" diameter tube coming out of it and running over to your throttle body.

Fingers are crossed sneck! Please keep us posted.

jk'n If you think the squeaking is from dirt that got in, try using one of those circular sprinklers that uses a stream of water broken periodically by an oscillating weight that causes the sprinkler to move in a circle. Slide it under the jeep. Move the jeep after about 15 minutes. Do the front and back. It'll clean all the dirt off of the frame and suspension.

Sorry to hear this... this isn't the one making noise is it?

Could it be dirt in there?

sneck My wifes family is from Voluntown/Griswald, (think I spelled those wrong). Brother in law took us on a few of the local trails. So don't worry, I can't give up the trails because I honestly have no idea where I was, something about "well over there is rhode island, you can tell because all the trail gates are locked because rhode island sucks! and over there is CT, you can tell because the trails are open!"

it does seem like there would be some nice club rides down there, the 2 trails we were on had alot of good pull off areas, and seemed pretty well maintained. alot of low trees and a few areas needed clearing, but otherwise well kept. there must be a club out there

Obligatory flex pics. Lots of long grass so not a good shot but oh well.
Hey, where in CT?

CrazyBull Anyone have a snorkel yet for the 12'? Quadratec says so far no one has cobbled one up yet.
10-02-2011 08:02 PM
Pebbs What do you do if this happens? I'm guessing that's why jeeps have snorkels??? LOL

tribangle @sneck - Nice!

Not to mention the, "Oh my feet!" hahahha
10-02-2011 07:29 PM
jk'n You lock up in 10 inches because of speed. Water aimed at the exact wrong angle as the jeep processes through the water gets sprayed into the intake and then hydro. Water crossings should be slow and deliberate. Anything else is asking for trouble.

not hydolocked...

[QUOTE=C.L.;1621046]Always fun, but watch your speed. Especially when kicking up alot of water on the passenger side. Your air box is over there; water likes to deflect off the underside of the hood and into the air box. People have hydrolocked in water WAY lower than the box due to the spray effect.

Here's a JKU hydrolocking in ~10" of water...


You can hear at the end of the video, the engine is cranking over.....believe me when I say.... if you hydrolock an engine.. it WILL NOT turn over....seen it done a few times....

I think this one was a simple case of electronics flooding....
