My Compass has completed another challenge

The northeast just got punched in the face with a ton of RAIN today. Streets flooded every where. I get to a certain street that i always take to work.... and i see water everywhere. There's also a car parked in the middle all of this street pond. The water looks about 6 inches deep on the parked car. I'm about to turn around because i say to myself "I dont want to be that guy who's stuck in his car and they have to resuce me with a boat" ... then i say "wait a min... i have a jeep damn it... i'm going in!" I floor it! Water flying everywhere... not a single issue...piece of cake! Mother nature 0 w4rh4wk 1

Six inches? Please... my Compass has already traversed 12 inch deep street water and two feet (yes, that's 24 inches) of muddy Florida swamp water, ha ha ha! Still, keep pushing the envelope and have fun doing it.

"There's gold in them hills" (and I'm still stuck in Florida!) ...well, in south Miss now, lol

Unless you want to crawl boulders (unlikely), your only limitation will be your tires. Oh, btw, if you regularly traverse water on any off roading, I HIGHLY recommend you relocate your horn from behind the front bumper cover up to just in front of the battery. Will save time and money . Oh, and double check all your wiring harness connections to prevent moisture from screwing with your sensors Above all, just have fun out there
