Re: Big Puddles!

And if you do, go VERY slowly. VERY VERY SLOW. But I would never go that high.

Re: Big Puddles!

Be very, VERY careful! Many folks have drowned their WK's with even quite mild water crossings.

Jeep certainly doesn't take wading ability very seriously.

It's supposed to be a pic from Racing Solutions of my engine after i went through a deep puddle. I did make it up to the shop to see my oil pan and where the connecting rod had punctured it, but i never really saw the engine at this stage. I guess they could have pulled a fast one on me with the pic...


Just found a pic of a hemi engine build. This pics looks similar to mine above

Re: Big Puddles!

Take it from me, don't mess around in water. Went in a little too deep back in 2009, let's just say rebuilding the engine has cost about 8 grand since..........
