So as some of you may or may not have known...it is flooding BIG TIME in MD. Oh, and I haven't been on in awhile (planning for July wedding). Anyways...just wanted to give an update on my WJ.
The lift and tires and supernerfs have been wonderful. My fiance and I and the pups have been camping like crazy and taking the WJ on some nice 4x4 and camping trips. Only problem is the bigger tires have been keeping us from going too far because the crappy mileage.
But thank god for these tires and the WJ because last night coming home from my parents, I saved a car and his family from the rain and got crazy soaked in the process. Coming down Rt. 29 north just south of Rt. 32 is a deep dip in the highway. And it was filled about 1.5' full of water (knee high), completely covering the roadway. Not to mention it was extremely dark due to the dense cloud cover. So we get to the bottom of the hill and see a car completely stopped in the water (guess he thought his accord would float across). So I think...do I rooster tail through this baby and wave as we go by
or help them out
...I decided to help them.
So I drive into the "river" of water and yell to the guy that I'm going to help. Long story short, it was a ***** finding a place to hook my tow rope to, but found a hook under the rear bumper and ran back to my Jeep...thankfully, have my husky liners in...yay....saved my carpets! My pants and my entire body was soaked from the downpour.
So without any issue, I was able to drag the accord out and off to the side of the road. He was extremely thankful and I was happy to help and was extremely impressed with the way the Jeep handled and especially the tires.
So anyways, just thought I'd share. Hope all is well with you guys!
