I was scared as **** when I noticed my milky brown trans fluid, and ended up flushing the entire trans and filter. LUCKILY, that only cost me a little over a $100, but it could've been worse. A new transmission woulda cost me bout $2,000 or so, so sorry man, but this stuff can sure get expensive.
only if you have an automatic with low breather tubes

We have a guy in our club who's jeep we call the Depth Finder. It rides on 39's and lots of lift If his front end goes under the rest of us turn around.

I think we have a winner. I'm guessing this jeep was on a ship sunk during WWII.

I can't find any better ones, but I have had the wake over the hood once or twice.






Didn't go so well for this guy, there were 6, yes 6, full size diesel trucks and 1 gasser hooked up to him in two separate lines . Just while I was there, I saw 5-10 straps and a couple winch cables snap.

This is Corbett, our regular wheeling spot in Palm Beach County. Not much fun if you hate mud and water. The blue Jeep is the Depth Finder.

Are there no laws against that kind of thing where you guys are? I live up in New England and if I got caught splashing too heavily through a puddle in the road I'd probably have all kinds of government in uncomfortable places. Not judging, just super jealous that these places exist.

Not the deepest out there, but it killed my alternator none the less.

I've been through water a little bit deeper than that, but this was the nastiest water hole I've hit.
