Default off road video, jeep drowning his engine

video from last time out, jeep going through a deep water hole gets stuck and i got to pull his dead jeep out.

kinda a long video, skip to 3:00 to see the big stuck.


basically what happened was the straight-6 has the distributor on the side of the block, so he prepared for water by having a snorkel but the distributor got full of water causing the engine to die and the vacuum from the exhaust after the engine died sucked water into cyl 5 and 6.

the airbox and throttle body was dry but pulled the plugs for the heck of it and it was like a water show coming out of the back 2 cylinders.

Awesome! I also really liked where at 4:28 when you were pulling out the jeep, and you had the dirt biker in the crosshairs of your brush guard. He looked a little worried for a minute.

i hate dirt bike and quad riders at the offroad parks, they are the biggest aholes i run into just like that situation, move the heck out of the way i had to watch them the entire time not the truck i was pulling encase i got to close or the strap broke

even when we were pulling plugs on the jeep they will just floor it and spray crap all over the place when they pass you, 30 mph around blind corners, aint gonna hurt my truck any, and i got the camera rolling encase theirs a collision

It seems like in every "stuck" video on you tube there is always a bunch of idiots buzzing around on dirt bikes and ATVs. Annoys the crap out of me listening to those things! It's not like they're just driving by, they're a cloud of two-stroke mosquitos!

I usually don't like music or sound effects in videos. But you did it well, and I enjoyed the video you compiled from multiple viewpoints.

i got a good one for you guys lol. i took my truck to a swamp party. i took it out to a buddies swamp party. took the truck down the back straight and got stuck when the truck popped out of 4x4. then i tried again into a really deep hole. and made it nowhere lol. water was a foot in the cab and engine died. i just ended up getting pulled out by a tractor and pulled all my plugs drained the oil and let her sit for a while. the starter was so wet that it didnt wanna start the truck. i got about 5 gallons of water and oil out of the oil pan. but i still ended up driving her home. good thing i had an extra 5 quarts of oil in the truck!!

first picture was after getting pulled out of the first hole i got stuck in and the second pic is the hole that flooded the engine lol.

nice, i had a few k5s that i used in the same way and they always looked like that first picture. it would turn more heads then any sports car. just sucked cause it made a mess in the driveway. with the older trucks like this you can pretty much swamp them up to the spark plugs, as long as the air intake and distributor dont go under it will stay running
