Hydrolocked my engine with dealer plates still on...

So here's my story. I was out playing around in puddles...really nothing big at all. On my way out I made one final run, a little water splashed on the hook and the engine died. I still have the dealer plates on her and they towed me, after my friends got me out of the water, to the dealership. I've read some of the threads and seen some people say that it was covered by Jeep for the repairs. I have a video of my final death run and it shows I was not exceeding the limits of "the most capable offroad vehicle". She's a stock JK Rubi and can climb anything I point her at...water seems to be an issue. I would love to hear any thoughts on this, what it could be, best wat to prevent it (what is the best snorkel?) and if anyone has had this happen and had it covered by warranty I'd really love to hear from you so I can have a little ammo when I go in to fight them.

The case will be short lived as "owner induced" accident will be found and not a manufacturer defect.Just more $$$ down the drain making everyones insurance rates go up and the price of new vehicles to also go up.

Thank you
So if you take your Liberty off road, cave in the rear quarter, you wouldn't claim this "owner induced" accident on your auto ins?

I don't get the whole fascination with water when it comes to wheelin but, regardless, this is a good reason for why we all have insurance ... it's not fair for you to say when and why we get to use said ins.
No,that would be a waste of time and money as I could fix it myself for far less then my $250 deductable.
Way to side step the point! :brickwall

To the OP ... good luck, friend. :thumbsup:
