Wading depth

OK so the North of the UK is suffering from some severe flooding

With the current model Grand Cherokee, what is the safe wading depth of water

Not interested in what Jeep say, what the real life experience in water

Re: Wading depth

Just above the front bumper to be safe. The bottom of the air intake is actually a couple inches above the top of the bumper, that's what you have to worry about.

Thanks. That's a known trail, I had seen other vehicles go through and I let my Jeeping buddy on 35's go first!

I had to go through there 5 times - my Jeeping buddy was using my semi-auto camera to shoot the pic, and he wasn't familiar with it.

Re: Wading depth

nav18tor,

hope you're not suffering any losses through the flooding - have a friend whose family are in the Cumbrian town hit really bad - they're ok and helping others out - hopefully you can put the WK to some good use?!

I am a long way from Cumbria, but thanks for the concern. I am less than an hour from London, my home is near to the East Coast port of Harwich

Given the chance, I will put the Jeep to the use intended (after 2pm tomorrow when I collect it from Swindon!)
