and it didnt get all over the belt?
interesting.
i had my waterpump replaced about this time 2 years ago. should be ok, but ill check. it makes more sense if my lower hose is leaking tho cuz it prolly got scraped by some ice in this one ice/water hole we got in...
OH i forgot to post those pics..ill have to do that

some pics others took from the offroading meet


my jeeps current appearance

the ice hole where most of the damage occured. i was the only one to get all 4 tires on the other ledge. everybody else was only able to get the front 2

he got stuck up it

so did he

my turn. taking my bumper off cuz it was getting knocked around


thats right! zj powa! only one to get all 4s on the other side of the hole. the ledge right behind my back tires was like a wall when u hit it

got stuck going like 2 mph. just sunk. .got pulled out and plowed right through it afterwards

getting pulled out

later on going through a different mud pit, my 242 decided to disengage from 4lo.. and i was sitting there in drive and reverse not spinning a tire. popped it back into 4 lo, backed up and ran through the pit no prob

[YT]99HkIjyFoMk[/YT]

the guy that made the video doesnt like gc's and says theyr a waste and not a real jeep. blah blah blah. hes one of my friends tho so we always give each other ****.
and he says i have a laredo in the vid
everybody else had some trouble with that hole. it was much easier for me for some reason. the explorer even has a limited slip in the back and mickey thompson baja claws...lol
its a jeep thing

ah and the comment in the very end about chris getting pulled out by a chevy, while pulling a jeep; thats after my cv joint blew and i only had 2wd. hes trying to make gc's look bad

yeah i agree, but watching when i watch it and remember what all is messed up, it doesnt seem that bad. it looks alot worse than it really is.
the only thing that hole did to me was cause a slight coolant leak, which escalated the next day, leaving a giant puddle of coolant in my driveway
my header panel got a couple cracks in it, but it already had like 1 or 2 starting
and i messed up a fog light, but iv got an extra sitting in my garage so thats ok lol.

Just watched the video. That's funny you lost your bumper and grill. But it looks like the Wrangler didn't do any better then you, weird.

i didnt losoe either, just took them off while i was in the hole. they were getting bashed around.
a vid didnt get taken when i actually got all 4 of my tires up on the ledge, but a pic got taken, i posted it a few posts back.
the wrangler was stock and kept getting his front tires stuck when he got them up
