6) Change all your fluids, Oil, transfer Case, Transmission, Diff

Good to go!

I completely submerged my vehicle and Hydro locked it, Did the above and she is still running like a champ. Granted, anytime you hydrolock a motor, there is some potential for engine damage because water does not compress.

Hope this helps
Looks like you should have either waited for the snow speeders or the imperial walkers to help you out in these pics.

They did not run as well as a Jeep in the cold.

Thanks for all the help guys. I eventually got it out and started it up fine. I included a picture in the same mud hole from before I got it stuck really bad. I threw in a picture of my buddy getting his TJ stuck in the same hole, driving in the opposite direction as well. He got out from my buddy's JK and some tow straps.

^ Glad to see that you and your Jeep made it out. Having to leave a rig to get more assistance can be difficult. That being said, you guys might have better luck with this little mud pit if you were using mud terrain tires?

Heck that was just a puddle, and yes jeeps are better than snow speeders. The thing that was bad about that day was the weekend before my snorkel came in the mail, but I was too lazy to put it on. That will teach me for being lazy, the jeep gods where mad at me along with my wife.

Honestly it looks like a wimpy puddle but the ruts I got stuck in were made by 44s. Only sportimg 32s with no lift, bottoming out the way I did was inevitable. That hole was in Charleston, SC but I'm moved to upstate NY now and I'm enjoying the trailriding scene up here much better.
