One of the Worst Images to come out of Hurricane Sandy

Saw this on my Local new site - this is a poor YJ that got battered by Sandy down in Mantaloking. This post by the way is a Satire... I work down there and there are many worse images but thought it was appropriate for Jeepforum...

Exactly - see this is why I thought this picture was appropriate for this forum! What the owner may have seen as the end of his good old jeep we just see as a starting point for a dedicated trail rig!

Looks like a great chance for the owner to do a headlight swap .

In all seriousness, I agree with above posts. Fliper over, turn the key, I bet it'll drive away.

Unfortunately I know where this picture was taken and the jeep was probably also under 4-5 feet of water... So it may be a bit water logged and rusted by now. A guy I know who has a Cherokee with 8 inches and 35s left his jeep at his house about 5 miles inland where he lives (lived) on the bay and he has water in his cup holders when he finally got back to it days later. The jeep was a total loss - everything is being stripped and put on another Cherokee.

Always hate seeing stuff like this... All the good cars/trucks from the 90's are getting harder and harder to find.

That sucks. I know a lot of people by the south shore (Long Island) who literally couldn't find their vehicles after Sandy.

I was fishing with my buddy in one of the bays and we were constantly hitting new wrecks, I bet some were cars.

I know exactly what you mean - about 2 months ago they pulled a Mercedes E class out of the bay that had been sunk since October (see picture). I read that there are still about 30-40 cars that are still "missing" from the Mantaloking to Seaside Area!

Yeah no ****! Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a 90s model Dodge Ram 2500 with a Cummins and a manual transmission? Jesus...

And people think their ****'s made of gold when they do sell it.

I'd wheel it. My first ZJ was in my shop when it burnt down in Feb. 2007, it got so hot that the Jeep letters in the front bubbled up and split the copper colored metal foil around them. Not only that but it was like -3 out when it happened and the fire department thought it would be good to put like 10 inches of water/ice inside of the jeep through it's open windows. To this day that Jeep still drives great with minimal electrical issues that they all get. (battery draw, and short inside of the VIC)

Why? It's not like they are broken and look round
