wheeling without doors?
 
hey Im new to the wheeling world. Ive taken my jeep crawling a little bit. also Ive taken mudding and was curious if wheeling without the doors on would matter if i went into deeper water? i understand the water will come into the jeep im not worried about that. i guess a better question would be is it common to go into fairly deep water without the doors on?

lol i have been sitting in water many times in the past. just open the back when you get home and spray her out with a hose.

yeah i already removed the carpet and bedlined the inside so im not worried about the rust. mudding without doors is messy so ive had to spray her out a couple times haha but im planning to go to an offroad park soon and was just curious cuz i love riding with no doors and dont feel like lugging them up there haha

Stay out of the mud. You'll be cleaning for weeks. Trust me lol

If its your first trip to that place I would go doors on. I will always wheel a new place with top on and doors on also just to test the water. If its not to bad I will go doors off and topf off also next time.

look into raising your axle and transmission breather hoses and install a snorkel.

I am with this. My JKU was ruined because of mud. I went into red mountain mud and it caked onto the underbelly of the Jeep and would never come back off.

I really don't like mud.. I just enjoy decent water fording and crawling. Either you're a mudder or you're not. :thumb:

Mud sucks. I try to avoid it if at all possible. I hate wheeling with doors, but in CT sometimes you have no choice. It's so much easier to see where your tires are without doors. I should have gotten the heated seats, maybe that would have helped. :D

My old jeep in the pic - no doors, but top cuz it was raining. It wasn't too deep, just enough to come in over the sills a little bit.

Nope. CT sucks. We usually end up in MA.

Aside from a wet butt and tree branches in the face its fun. If you're like me and love the mud the cleanup is an afterthought.
