Big Puddles!
 
its raining like crazy and today i took my jeep through some massive puddles (for on a regular street) to the top of my tire.

Cars were getting stuck but my jeep was going through fine, i was just wondering, it doesnt harm my jeep by doing this right?

Yes, it can cause serious problems, like completely ruining your engine. I would avoid water like that whenever possible

Meh, it's a Jeep, it's made for this. Just make sure you don't get deeper than where your air intake is. If you ever have a need for that, look into installing a snorkel.

If you start fording water, don't stop until you're in the clear.

Just dont go too deep, or too fast; or both like it did. Water wont compress like air does and something has to give :(
