Honestly, I don't think he's trolling. But the kid is absolutely clueless, it's almost hard for me to believe someone can be this naive.

Dude, EVERYTHING you asked + so much more is already available. Please insert some common sense into that head of yours and learn to research just a tiny bit. This has gotten to the point of ridiculousness. Hell, if not for us then at least challenge yourself to see if you can find the information yourself instead of asking to get spoon-fed info that's already been widely discussed for years.

Tom125 Questions are great, We all ask them from time to time. But most of us do a search before we start posting new threads. Sometimes searches need to be worded differently to find the info that you are looking for. Chances are if you have an issue, someone else on here has had the same issue and if you SEARCH you will find it yourself. Without pissing everybody off with too many posts.

allblackedout Alright I don't think we all should be comming at him this hard now. He's asking wuestions because he wants to learn, we've all been there. Maybe think a little harder before you create too many threads as there are already many on this forum. I've asked many questions on lifts but thats because when i joined I didn't know very much and was eager to learn. I think his questions been answered, lets let him be.

My hood doesn't line up post??? Can I get a link?

IWANNAOFFROAD Do you guys not read what I just posted? You misunderstood me. When he said that I went and look through all my threads and could not find it" I DO read my threads. When I said No I don't I was referring to having another thread where someone answered this question

You asked in another thread how long a jeep would last, well now that I have seen this thread, your jeep wouldn't last you too long. Since you mentioned that you don't have any tools, I wouldn't even think about water crossings. You have no way of changing or checking out fluid. Not trying to offend you, just trying to help.
I understand and I'm going to take your advice. No point in abusing my DD. I have thick skin don't worry I'm not offended

mudmagnet63 A few words from a river rat, 90% of my wheeling is on a river nearby. We have been playing there for over 20 years now. I have never had a mojor issue due to water unless I slipped off in a hole ( it happens). We frequently drive through water at or above the rockers for a mile or more. There are jeeps, blazers, bronco's, sammies everything you can dream of following the same route every weekend. Anyone can have water intrusion with bad seals, gaskets or being pulled in through a breather tube. Bottom line is stay out of the deep stuff because nothing but the super jacked up can ford those crossings and you should be fine as long as your rig is maintained

Just my.02

Jerry Bransford I hate to say anything that could possibly be construed to encourage deeper water activities with a TJ but 2002 and older automatic transmissions will suck water in via their front vent hole just above the front input shaft like a shower drain.

2003 and newer 42RLE transmissions have a remote vent tube that is designed to keep water out from mild immersions.

But as said above.... our TJs are not boats, they are not submarines... despite the TV ads that show Jeeps conquering water, water normally/eventually just causes all kinds of serious problems. Take the above advice to avoid trying to ford deep water. I know it is hard for you to accept such advice but....

And yeah, it seems like you post threads & ask questions, we answer the questions in those threads, then you post more new threads that often ask the same questions again. Do you read all of your own threads? Really?

Um hate to tell u this but the do and depending on what year u have depends on how it is this is what a pre 03 looks after I redid the vent line to raise it higher to keep water out

Dextreme I really think you might consider getting one of these Terraquad thingy's. It might better server your needs.

Stay out of the water!!!!! You are going to ruin your Jeep and piss the nice people that bought you that Jeep off. Do yourself a favor and listen to me, you will kill your Jeep and regret it.

listen to him, i went through some deep water and ended up with out a clutch didn't know you couldn't open under water.. anyways water/mud breaks stuff. I'm going to miss it but i like not having expensive repairs. I did have the miss conception that jeeps were submarines tho
