Well, had an interesting day yesterday. Took it out to the trails for the first time and wouldn't ya know, something happened...
I was NOT happy at this point. Engine hydrolocked, interior full of water, and jeep stuck in mucky, sandy crap. We eventually get it to this point:
At this point, there was no pulling left. It doesn't look like it but the front right tire is buried in the sand. All we had were fourwheelers and side-by-sides to pull and weren't getting anywhere fast.
While I was gone getting oil, my buddy pulled plugs and shot the water out of the pistons and got it started long enough to drive it onto dry land and shut it off. Changed the oil and drove it 30 miles home. What a beast of an engine these jeeps have, I was so impressed.
Sorry I don't have anymore pictures, I was going to take some but then this issue occurred, lol. All in all it was a blast and I had a good time. Going to change all my fluids today and do a tune up. Looks like I'll be ripping out my carpet soon, lol.
