First time off-road!
 
My buddy and I spent Saturday afternoon doing a bit if off-road driving. I went through some water that was a little deeper than we initially thought and he jeep stalled - water got in the distributor. We dried it and she fired right back up.

Thus git me thinking... Aside from sealing the distributor, what other types of prep should I do before our next trip?

Check all of your fluids. Water could have seeped into your diffs and transmission.

Prep your mind that it's not a boat and say "no" to anything deeper than your bumpers. :thumb:

Never understood why guys want to take their jeeps in deep water. Nothing good can come of it. To much stuff to go wrong.

Haha! Understood. I am going to lift it with a rough country 4" and replace tires at some point before summer.

This is true, I'm done playing in deep water, as it has not been nice to me.

I hit a pretty good hole when I was out. I definitely will be avoiding deep water. I prefer trail driving more than water.
