If it did go wrong, I guess it would be a lot easier to get it recovered and fixed in the middle of a city, compared to being in the middle of nowhere....

It would probably take just as long to get a recovery truck to come and get you as it would out in the middle of nowhere. They'll all be busy pulling other non-Jeep vehicles out of the big puddles.

Yeah, but then you get to be "that guy people see on the news who tried to drive through a flooded street".

The other issue not addressed with driving through a flooded street is not knowing what may have washed in there. In the city, you may have all kinds of junk that could puncture a tire or break something hiding in that water.

As others mentioned, there could be an open sewer due to a manhole cover or grating being dislodged.

Plus, if water gets into the cabin that is contaminated with sewer waste, you'll never get the smell out and it will want to grow in all kinds of places where you'll never get it cleaned out.

Totally not worth it.
