Almost lost the WJ in a puddle today

Look out all the seats, ripped up the carpet and shop vac all the water out. Hoping it dries out in the sun tomorrow

Looks like a clearance issue. You just needed more speed. :P Hope you cut it off before the motor sucked up any water. Be sure to change all your fluids, filters, plugs, etc and let it sit for a few days before even trying to start it.

Was all good until you stopped eh? Get the carpets cleaned before you put them back,and x2 on the fluids. Don't need the water in the axles or tranny at all.

. Looked like a normal puddle then I just fell in could not go forward anymore and slammed it in reverse but could not make it back out. It was real slippery down there once I was swimming in it lol and yes I have to change to fluids

Just rent one of the home steam cleaners or such should do it. If left they can smell not so nice.
