WJ's in deep

Lets see some WJs in deep water. I will have pics to add around this time next month. Headed to Disney, OK for the weekend of May 11 and 12.

I may have a pic of my stock WJ from a few weeks ago. It is on a friend's phone. I will see if I can get it from him. It sure does love the water.

2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7l, Quadra Trac II, hail damage, bad heater core, shot SS, dirty TB, rear passenger window regulator is out, and a broken seat bracket.

No snorkel here, just launching the boat about 150 feet offshore:



Bear Lake has areas that very gradually slope down into the lake, and you have to back pretty far out.

No, you can still see a good chunk of the tire, I am only in about 30 inches of water, not much more than most people go into when wheeling in the mud, etc.

Very nice man, I bet it was as exiting as it looks!
Hahaha

And also, after seeing pics of all those trucks stuck in deep mud. I never go into any holes with checking the depth first..
I like mud and all but getting stuck is no fun haha

What size tires do you have? Look far from 30" to me...

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

35's. There is 5 or more inches of tire showing though, so I am really only in about 30 inches of water in that pic.

And Morhine, those pics are insane!

Oh ok, that seems plausible. Regardless it's a good photo op
