Exactly, and yet some see no problem, probably because they've never experienced having 42 trails closed all at one time because of knuckleheads like this.
Its not even having the threat of trails closing, its that people see that and it gives us ALL a bad name...I mean the whole offroad industry gets little to no respect by anybody who isnt into offroading and its because of actions like this, sure it beats knocking over a liquor store and there's always a learning curve regardless of age (That goes for ALL of us!) but hopefully people wise up and realize there migh be no rules or government on trails but that doesnt mean they can do whatever they want and respect to the land needs to be paid.
He was just splashing through puddles. You can't tell me you have a lifted truck and you've never splashed through puddles before, I don't care how old or young you are. Everyone has that one action shot of their truck speeding through a puddle on the Internet somewhere.
Just seems like karma caught up with him, he was being a dick, and he ruined his jeep sounds like he got what he deserved.

Looks very similar to a Jeep commercial. He isn't doing anything wrong, as long as he is adhering to any speed limitations on forest roads and isn't trespassing. Glad it was only the distributor. Seal it up so it doesn't happen again. Have fun and be safe out there.

I don't. Never have and never will go speeding through puddles, especially deep ones. I like my Jeep to run, not suck up sh*t.

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.
I have never understood anybody thinking that fourwheeling is done at fifty miles per hour. That's not wheeling! At those speeds a prius would make it through those puddles!
To me, (and thats just me I guess) Knowing the issue Jeeps have with their exhaust system and cracking, and how alot of people wont wash their motor with clean water, why run it through mud puddles like its the first time seeing water?
