It's a Jeep so go through puddles

It's raining like crazy here in Northern California. Apparently there's a lot of areas with standing water. Cars were going around some "puddles" but for me, I decided that since I'm driving a Jeep that I was going through the water. Went through like a champ. This type of weather was made for our Jeep.

Fortunately, you're not driving an EcoDiesel...

I did the same thing when the street by my friend's apartment flooded due to the pipes breaking under the road. Everyone went around where I was flying through them Love when I get to do that!

Could be a problem in Florida when the puddle covers a sinkhole.

Re: It's a Jeep so go through puddles

Gotta love running through those puddles! I swear my A/T's are much more hydroplane resistant than the streets it came with. There is a limit to how much water you can run through though.. 1' (yes foot) didn't turn out so well hitting it at 35+ mph. It's hard to tell the difference between a few inches and a foot of water when driving through a flooded road.

Going fast through puddles and ones that you have no idea how deep they are...sounds like a great idea.

Or maybe our jeep was made for this type of weather.

I made sure it was pretty shallow. I wouldn't go through ones that look like it'll swallow a car. Yikes.

I just saw a guy roll his car yesterday going through a "puddle" too fast. He didn't look like he was too stoked with the results, as well as the people he ran into.

Re: It's a Jeep so go through puddles

When we get street flooding around here it has a tendency to blow manhole covers off in the intersections. I can imagine what kind of damage that would do dropping a front wheel into an open manhole.
