will a snorkel help when all the electronics are flooded? or does it only need to buy him time to back out.Yeah, looks like he dumped a fair amount into this rig. Next time spend the extra for the snorkel I guess.
I think his floor should already have water before dropping into the hole.I hate water crossings. I do ‘em, but they’re never enjoyable unless you’re just talking little baby crossings.
They said they did have a walker but you have to remember the Jeep is a lot wider and a lot heavier than your walker. Mud in this area can be exceptionally treacherous and should be avoided.I thought you're supposed to walk the crossing first if it's one where you can't see the bottom. Guess that didn't happen here...
Right? My primary interest in watching was to find out where the heck is water like that. It's a clickbait move. Not impressed.Really weird editing for the promo image. Makes it look like the Jeep is in a swimming pool instead of a silty river, and Matt has no legs.
The electronics aren't the primary concern. At least not directly. The engine compartment isn't watertight so electronics are already fairly well protected from water intrusion. But your power supply is susceptible and that's where the problem is. Battery terminals and alternator do not fare well submerged.will a snorkel help when all the electronics are flooded? or does it only need to buy him time to back out.
The max water fording depth is just above the lower door hinges. The JL is designed to have water on the floor. That's why the floor has drain plugs. So the rule of thumb is that the moment your lower door hinges go under, your priority must immediately shift to finding shallower water. Either change direction or back out.I think his floor should already have water before dropping into the hole.
I'm from the area. There are places where you can find water like that but they're very rare. I did not recognize the photo as being any one of those places. (turns out it's not a place like that)
Relax - it's water. It's not like he's in a skimpy bikini talking about a broken axle, etc
