Thanks.

Cyalume It's the Passaic River, it's not a storm drain, click the video for the information.

I'm sure this violates some rivers and stream act.

speeddrive1 If that were in Minnesota and they got caught doing that the dnr would probably own that jeep and the dealership who put that jeep together.

Doesn't matter if it's on their property, they don't own it. Nobody "owns" any water resource regardless if it's on their property. All of those tributaries, creeks, rivers and whatever you're calling a "storm drain canal" are owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. But, that's fine. Let them destroy it. My wife is a Water Resources Engineer, so she'd likely be called in to fix it...YAY for job security! More money for mods!

Mopar2Ya I wouldn't want to buy from them it that were my vehicle, the smoking bothers me more than the wheeling.

The last JP mag, Chrysler estimated 2-300, but sold 400. IMO those #'s seema bit low.

salmonshark Just curious, where was the danger of hydrolocking? It didn't look like it ever really got that deep. Driving too fast?

If he was going faster or deeper maybe, but it didn't get that bad right there.
Sure they were knuckleheads about how they drove it, but as stated this is a promotional vehicle on the dealer's lot and they're showing it off for the camera.

SilverSport Guess you could say it passed the test.

pasteris71 Would live to see the ad on this one. New Jeep, smoke free. Then you see this video with the salesman stepping out with a cigarette in mouth. So not only is it used but it's been smoked in. I smell huge discount!

Thinking the same. They will probably close a trail in Utah in that rivers honor.

tjt94 Wow! Tough going! Looks like the kind of stuff I used to do with my 78 Monza stationwagon (Vega) growing up in Montana. Totally no need for 4X4 or a vehicle that costs $50K.
03-17-2012 06:43 PM
wrangler0 How high of a lift is on there?
What kind/size tires?

Pretty bad ass lookin jeep
Very disrespectful drivin'...

4fit Good grief.

I will say, that is a good looking rig. I'm normally not too fond of the JK8s or the Sidebiters, but that thing is pretty damn sweet.

Good way to hydrolock JK8

Good to see dealerships fording water properly with new inventory.
