Good thing it did not hydro lock. hard to believe it did not.
When you ford water correctly you actually create an air pocket in the engine compartment, the water going over the hood a little bit is no big deal. If he had stopped it would have caused problems. IIRC jeep rated the wrangler to ford 3 feet or so of water?

I think what most people are trying to say is that you should check all of your fluids(if they look milky then you need to take some serious action... as your vents were most likely under water... without a snorkle that was not the smartest move... down in South Florida we have some serious water hazards... most relocate vents and install snorkles, silcone up elec. connections... the biggest hazrd you managed to avoid is the cr^p that was under the water! consider yourself pretty lucky. you clip a fire hydrant or something similar and your gunna do some serious damage...

not to mention how those fans love to flex and take out your rad!
