Default Mudding Snow Peak Oregon

Me and my friend went up to snow peak, got muddy, had fun. I finally let myself have to much fun on this trip snapped my exhaust, broke the hangars and broke my front bumper lol. The exhaust broke because i went up a hill climb at a weird angle and sat on my hitch,

and my exhaust was dug in the ground, i could have easily backed up but my buddy just HAD to pull me out lol. as he yanked my blazer out with his lifted toyota t100 my exhaust broke off the hangars and bent in half. ended up snapping it off but its fine now. my license plate is now attached to my rola roof rack (i hope this is legal) other then that such a fun trip. heres the video of us just messin around.

haha it was pretty cold out, snowy, rainy, and like 20 degrees haha. we just wanted to film really fast and get back in our trucks as fast as possible. it was fun, my engine is covered in dirt and i have stock intake. i let it sit for a bit and seemed fine.

Eh, from my understanding Hydrolock happens when water is at the level of the air intake. You'd have to come into the puddle at a high speed for it to reach your intake in a large enough quantity to hydrolock. And it also depends on your intake set up.

At my husband's barracks back when he was a Marine, there was a valley in the road that created a small river when it rained. Laughed my butt off when an Eclipse decided he could make it through... totally Hydrolocked it because their intakes are low low LOW lol. Funny thing is, if he had common sense he could have taken the other road and bypassed it... but the don't call 'em Jarhead for nuttin. lol.
